Press Information

Hamburg, 8 May 2017: In the Grand Hall of Hamburg’s new concert venue and landmark, the programme for the upcoming 2017/18 season was revealed today. Following the opening concerts on 11 and 12 January 2017, which captured global attention, and the unprecedented series of top-notch concerts and festivals in quick succession, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg is now setting its sights on its first regular season. By summer 2017, more than 480,000 people will already have experienced a concert live at the Elbphilharmonie, which has thus far always been completely sold out, and some two million visitors will have enjoyed the Plaza, the 37-metre-high viewing platform open to the general public. The highly extensive and diverse programme is synonymous with continuity at the highest level whilst further exploring dramaturgical themes and accents. From »Elbphilharmonie Sommer«, which transforms August 2017 into a melodic month of holiday in a class of its own, through to the Hamburg International Music Festival in spring 2018, the programme weaves a web of some 600 concerts that showcase classical music, jazz, electronic music, world music, avant-garde and pop. Ticket presale starts on 12 June 2017.
