Klangwolke-2024 © LIVA

Presented by SPARKASSE OÖ & LINZ AG. The Linzer Klangwolke is a brilliant musical and artistic production in Linzer Donaupark.

The success story of the Linz Klangwolke began 45 years ago, on 18 September 1979 at 8 pm sharp, with Anton Bruckner's Symphony No. 8 in C minor. Back then, people put their radios up to their open windows and let Bruckner's music ring through the streets and float over the whole city like the eponymous Klangwolke. Since then, more than three and a half million spectators have been enchanted by the magic of this major event, which has developed over time into an audiovisual, mass-media event with international appeal, for which Linz's Donaupark, as well as the river itself and its banks, are transformed once a year into a brilliantly illuminated and sounded scenery with means specially adapted to the open-air conditions.

In 2023, Francesca Zambello succeeded with ODYSSEY. A Journey Through Worlds a sensationally successful sound cloud that attracted more than 100,000 spectators and listeners. Who will follow in their footsteps in the Bruckner year 202 4 and thus join the long list of renowned artists from a wide variety of genres who have created the Linz Klangwolke over the past four and a half decades, including most recently the theatre collective La Fura dels Baus and directorial greats such as David Pountney, Pierre Audi and Robert Dornhelm, will only be revealed in early summer. What is already certain, however, is that this highlight in the city's cultural calendar, which is one of Europe's largest and most spectacular outdoor productions in public spaces, will be presented as usual by SPARKASSE OÖ and LINZ AG, with the latter once again inviting all visitors to continue celebrating together at the Nachklangwolke.
