FNY Festival: Munich

FNY Festival

An international culture festival is taking place behind Ostbahnhof from 1-10 September. The FNY Festival will be held at Werksviertel (Container Collective‘s base), which is currently being redeveloped and transformed into a residential area and busy creative centre. While all that’s going on in the background, a ten-day arts festival is planned to draw people to the area.

The makers are old hats on Munich’s cultural scene. Mirko Hecktor, Mirko Borsche, Marc Meden and Hubertus Becker are all involved – hence the impressive line-up.

The festival kicks off on Friday (7pm, tickets cost 25 € on the door) with a party that’s planned to last the whole night. DJs from Munich and further afield will play, and Kubik (Balestra Berlin) are responsible for the super cool lighting, created from 273 water tanks.

Sundays are family days – graffiti and skate workshops, kids discos and breakdance competitions are all planned – and entrance is completely free.

The Happy Film, a wonderful Austrian documentary about a man who attempts to change certain traits to become a happier person, is showing on Wednesday, 6 September, and there are further parties lined up for the weekend.
