What is the Leipziger Hörspielsommer?
The “Leipziger Hörspielsommer” is the biggest festival for audio drama in Germany. It´s organized by the association „Hörspielsommer e.V.“. Since 2003 several thousand visitors enjoy this annual open-air event, located in one of Leipzig’s beautiful city parks.
About 80 productions are presented during the ten-day festival – admission free! To please all ears we offer a program for children and teenagers in the afternoon, and an evening program for adults. Live-performances like readings, shows and live-audio dramas are introduced to the audience on the weekends to give new perspectives on the artistic interpretation of audio dramas.
In order to put a spotlight on aspiring authors and producers the Leipziger Hörspielsommer hosts two competitions for audio drama productions. These competitions provide a platform for networking and discussions and they also support young artists on their way towards professionalism.
