A Summer's Tale Festival

In addition to concerts and DJ sets, the A Summer's Tale will offer many other cultural highlights: movie screens, stages for readings and much more are going to transform the festival area into a cross-cultural microcosm for culture in all its facets. Moreover, there are active and creative workshops such as D.I.Y. and yoga sessions, canoe trips, excursions to the green surroundings, and many more activities for the entire family. A Summer's Tale is also characterized by pleasure and comfort. The culinary offer presents high quality dishes and when it comes to housing, the festival is tailored to individual preferences.

M'era Luna Festival

Black but unbelievably colourful: Since 2000, the M’era Luna festival at the airfield Hildesheim-Drispenstedt is the meeting spot of the black scene from all over Europe. Every year well over 40 bands make sure that the 25,000 guests experience an unforgettable weekend. Of course, music from genres such as goth rock, electro, medieval rock or metal are in the focal point – but most of the extravagantly dressed guests conceive the always sold-out festival as more of a family meeting. And there really is more than music to discover – be it a medieval market, a fashion show, lectures or black disco nights. Additionally, guests may delve into a wide range of different foods that far surpass the usual festival fair. In addition to fried classics, the food court offers savoury and sweet dishes from all over the world.
