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, as a very special memory. Welcome to create your memories 15-18 Maj 2020, with the second version of Point Music Festival.
The premirère 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. Throughout the festival the Gothenburg Concert Hall was transformed. With sound, lighting and design, we created an atmosphere where anything could happen. An atmosphere where music, dance, performing art and other art forms met in new, unexpected ways, sweeping the audience into an adventure.
On May 15-18, 2020, the adventure will continue as the festival enters the stage once again. Welcome to four days of pure magic.
Point Music Festival is conducted with the support of the Sten A Olsson foundation for Research and Culture.
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.
