That feeling of euphoria that you get when you’ve been part of something unique and magnificent. We want all festival visitors to experience that, and carry it with them when they leave Point Music Festival, as a very special memory.
The premirère of Point Music Festival in May 2019 was a big adventure for us as well as for the audience. Never before have we had such a high-class, extensive and multifaceted programme in such a concentrated form. On 15-18 May 2020 the festival will make its entrance again!
Point Music Festival is conducted with the support of the Sten A Olsson foundation for Research and Culture.
Welcome 15-18 May 2020
Throughout Point Music Festival the Gothenburg Concert Hall will be transformed. With sound, lighting and design, we will create an atmosphere where anything can happen. An atmosphere where classical music and other art forms meet in new, unexpected ways. An adventure for all your senses.
You can already now secure your seat for the festival’s final – a real Beethoven festivity with world star Anne-Sophie Mutter! The entire program will be released in the beginning of 2020.
Take me to the program
Point Music Festival 2019 Point Music Festival 23-26 May 2019 contained four world premières, three orchestras, two club nights, a film screening, and some ten concerts…
The leitmotif of the festival was a number of powerful stories about being human, and about life itself, often told by female voices.
Take a look at the programme for 2019
A grand performance space
Point Music Festival takes place on truly hallowed ground. The Gothenburg Concert Hall at Götaplatsen has attracted music lovers since 1935. Stora salen is a grand performance space, renowned for its acoustics. The more intimate Stenhammarsalen is known for its beautiful wooden decor.
Nils Einar Eriksson, the architect who designed the concert hall, wanted to create a place for everybody, with music at its centre. The result was a building that with its clean functionalism and beautiful natural materials fascinates visitors to this day.
