The Festival of 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 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.
