EFA Arts Festivals Summit was a big success

6 May 2017

On 5 May, EFA concluded its 65th General Assembly hosted by the Rheingau Musik Festival with a new board and president. It was a remarkable last General Assembly for longstanding EFA President Darko Brlek, who was honoured by all participants during a reception at the Hessische Staatskanzlei.

On behalf of the EFA Board and Team we want to thank Michael Herrmann and his team of the Rheingau Musik Festival for their hospitality and the excellent organization of the 3 days.

230 festival makers (EFA Members, EFFE Label Festivals and Atelier Alumni) met in Wiesbaden for 3 intense days of inspiring exchanges with colleagues and friends from all over Europe. This unique Arts Festivals Summit showed the international participants the best that the Rheingau region has to offer: beautiful sights from Schloss Vollrads, the astonishing Casino Gesellschaft in Wiesbaden, the amazing Hillary Hahn in the Frankfurter Alte Oper and delicious wine in Kloster Eberbach.

Next year we will be hosted by Darko Brlek and his team of the Ljubljana Festival for the Arts Festival Summit from 11-14 April 2018.
