Off Festival Munich

Off Festival

From Friday until Sunday, a completely free festival is taking place in the Säulenhalle (Arnulfstraße 62). The Off Festival aims to celebrate art, without money being a factor – no one should make a profit, no one should be out of pocket. It’s a platform for young artists, and a place where genres meet – experimental theatre, dance, music, exhibitions and performances.

Organized by not yet, the festival will feature 40 international artists from a variety of fields. Head down there from midday to check out the festival – and if you want to catch a performance, they’ll be held at 12pm, 3pm and 6pm on the three days. In between, you can pop into the cinema room, where a variety of documentaries and experimental films will be screened.

Artists include Portuguese post-porn photographer Luis Pedro de Castro (aka Strangelfreak), graphic artist Philipp Frank and Spanish artist Colxi.

On Friday and Saturday night, the art collective TamTam will host an after-show party with live music and DJs (from 8pm onwards, a small fee will be charged). Music will come from the likes of Friedemann von Rechenberg and Rumpeln, and old Atomic Cafe DJ Tobi is one of the DJs playing.
