What's on

Welcome back 2020

Thank you for a wonderful world première of Point Music Festival!

Point Music Festival

23-26 May 2019 the Gothenburg Concert Hall will be transformed. With sound, lighting and design, we’ll create an atmosphere where anything can happen. Welcome to four days of pure magic.

Grand Opening

Love raises us to the skies – and drops us to the ground! Follow Gothenburg Symphony into Point Music Festival and a whirlwind of an emotional violin concerto about passion and doubt.

Life Reflected

A symphonic multimedia experience based on four Canadian women’s engaging life stories, with music, song, dance, spoken word, photography and graphics.


’Across the sky crept the darkness, full of fangs…’ With its origins in the macho world of the Nordic gods the Point Music Festival’s second world première delivers a loaded chamber music drama.


Point Music Festival’s first world première: AIŌN, a dance performance, a visual adventure and a grand symphonic experience with Iceland Dance Company and Gothenburg Symphony.

Point Club

Classic music like you’ve never heard it before, straight from London’s club scene. Gabriel Prokofiev's concept mixes live music and DJs, famous works and club music. Open until 01.00.

Bugge’s Bach

The parameters are set by the baroque period. Jazz pianist Bugge stretches them. An interpretation of the famous Goldberg Variations as you have never heard them.

Kreutzer Sonata

A dramatic story about jealousy and murder, narrated by actor Krister Henriksson. Tolstoy’s classic novella The Kreutzer Sonata is named after Beethoven’s beautiful violin sonat.

Bach Reflections

An intimate and poetic music experience when the virtuosos take their Bach out to different spots in the grand concert hall, and perform one solo piece each in a suite.

Gates of Hell

Rodin's famous sculptural group, The Gates of Hell, was completed while the world war raged. The performance with Norwegian Chamber Orchestra and actor Johan Gry is named after the art work and is a shining protest against the insanity of war.

Pierrot Lunaire

Controversial, expressive, inventive and fun! The melodrama Pierrot Lunaire with the moonstruck clown Pierrot performed with neverending energy, imagination and humour.

In State of Emergency

A powerful, beautiful and gripping choir concert which reflects the feelings many of us experience in these unsettling times. A contemplative, intense experience with strong voices and touching words.

Taking Risks

In the documentary film, here shown for the very first time, we follow a number of singers on their way to the stage via auditions in Stockholm, Zürich, Paris and London. Admission free.
