// From 17. May 2024: The free cabaret stage at the Alter Markt

Open Stage
Music and cabaret
in the old town of Linz

free performance opportunity for street art 


Performing street music in Linz has become more expensive due to a federal tax, see Straßenkunstbescheid. A post on our participation platform addressed this problem - at the same time, Isabella from our team has already been working on an alternative with Roland Pachner from the association Verein Wir Altstadt Linz. Tadaaa! From May 17, 2024 there will be: OPEN STAGE - the free cabaret stage at the Alter Markt, Old Town Linz.

Save the date: OPEN STAGE opening on 17. May 2024

On Friday, 17. May 2024 at 3 pm at the Alter Markt with a colorful program of music and magic. Details of the program see below

Attention: Not everything is allowed!

As the permanent use of the Open Stage is only permitted for a very specific purpose, there are some general conditions to be observed:

  • A performance is only possible via official appointment booking (see button above)
  • Instruments may only be played unplugged and quietly (e.g. wind instruments muted).
  • This means that there is no electricity etc. - and no additional infrastructure - just the stage.
  • Of course, cabaret also means that no reprehensible or inflammatory content may be disseminated on the open stage.
  • Fees are only paid by the audience.
  • And to ensure that the allocation remains fair, you can only claim a maximum of 2 hours and a maximum of 3 times per month on the Open Stage.
  • You can find more detailed terms of use on the booking page.
