Linzer Klangwolke 24
presented by SPARKASSE OÖ & LINZ AG

The success story of the Linz Klangwolke began 45 years ago, on September 18, 1979, at 8 p.m. sharp, with Anton Bruckner's Symphony No. 8 in C minor. Back then, people placed their radios in open windows and let Bruckner's music ring through the streets and float over the entire 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 created a sensationally successful sound cloud with ODYSSEY. A Journey Through Worlds , Francesca Zambello created a sensationally successful sound cloud that attracted more than 100,000 spectators and listeners. Who will follow in her footsteps in the Bruckner year 202 4 and thus join the long list of renowned artists from a wide variety of genres who have shaped the Linz Klangwolke over the past four and a half decades, including most recently the theater collective La Fura dels Baus and directorial greats such as David Pountney, Pierre Audi and Robert Dornhelm, will not be revealed until 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.
