Events in Graz
Every year the Austrian film industry comes to Graz, where the popular Diagonale film festival has been taking place since 1998. More than 25,000 visitors went to the film screenings and other events during the Diagonale in 2013. The Austrian premieres and the world premieres are much-anticipated events.
“Old masters, new interpretations” - that's the motto at the Styrian festival for classical and old music, which enchants music fans in Graz for one month in the summer. The classic festival was introduced in 1985 and is dedicated to the conductor Nikolaus Harnoncourt. It brings various, famous artists on the city's stages, who then perform new interpretations of old works. The visitors appreciate especially the delightful and historic atmosphere at the different venues, like the Stefanisaal, Eggenberg Castle or the Helmut-List Hall.
La Strada, the international festival for street and puppet theatres, turns the Graz old town into one huge stage during a couple of days in July. Beautiful and spectacular performances, quiet and worldly-wise plays – the range of productions by artists from Graz and Europe is very wide.
The Styrian Autumn is Europe's oldest and most traditional festival for “new” art and has been held since 1968. Its programme offers not only all facets of contemporary art, but offers also a platform for new, first-class productions. According to the festivals directions, the performances take place at always new and extraordinary venues like empty industrial buildings, display windows, bridges and very often public premises.
“Styrian catwalk”, that's the event in a nutshell. Characterised by the Styrian costume trends, models present the latest costume designs on the catwalk in front of the city hall. The VOIXmusik on air on Graz main square is also typical Styrian as well as the farmers' market on Kaiser-Josef-Platz.
