“Realistic Dreams”
The Festival of Regions 2025 from 13 to 22 June 2025 in Braunau am Inn

The upcoming Festival of the Regions will take place from 13 to 22 June in the Innviertel in Upper Austria, with a main focus on Braunau am Inn as the festival site.

Under the motto of “Realistic Dreams”, we are dealing with the current omnipresent feeling of insecurity and take an unflinching look towards the future. We are looking for new connections, narratives, and utopias.

The Festival of the Regions is one of the most renowned contemporary festivals for art and culture in Austria and the independent scene. It has been held every two years in rural Upper Austria since 1993.

In the 30 years of its existence, the Festival of the Regions has focused on current and timeless issues: Home, work, asylum, hostility, migration, exclusion. In ever-changing regions, it addresses social issues through art and culture. International artists come into contact with the local population, local cultural associations work with supra-regional artists and passers-by become part of the festival.
