Take a weekend out of your summer and head over to the Elevate Festival in Graz, Austria for one of the most enlightening events of modern times. Elevate is a multifaceted festival that combines music, art and political discussion under one roof. Various central venues host expert speakers in the humanitarian and climate fields. The annual event is offset beautifully by dozens of musicians and artists looking to break the conventional style of mainstream entertainment.
Additionally, Elevate Festival is run by a non-profit association meaning that the weekend extravaganza is free of charge. The program is decked out with workshops, lectures, discussions and film screenings which spark discussion and awareness on important issues of our time. Participants and spectators alike will be immersed in a densely unique analytical dialogue on the topics of economic, ecological and social developments. For the Music-Programme you can get hold of tickets via Elevate’s ticketshop.
Break away from the mainstream and get lost in the trance of eclectic styles of music. The five-day event promotes new experiences and adventurous taste in rhythmic movement. Chances are you haven’t heard any group from this lineup. And that’s exactly how they want it.
