Festival Setup 2020

14. July 2020

In the last few months we have worked out and played through a multitude of possibilities and concept variations – up to and including a local relocation of the festival!
Unfortunately, the Corona-related conditions that would apply to our Waves alternative scenarios also make it economically impossible for us to realize the live part of the festival. Therefore we had to decide with a heavy heart to limit the Waves Festival this year to the Hybrid-Conference and the planned concert streaming with public viewing in the WUK-Hof.

But we are not discouraged, we are already working on a program for 2021 that will compensate for the Covid year 2020!


We have invited numerous national and international acts to participate in the Waves Festival 2020 via stream. The online channels are available with a pay as you wish streaming ticket, which you can get here, and will offer about 50 shows. The streaming acts can be viewed here on the line-up page.

Concerning the restrictions resulting from Corona, we would like to ask you to keep an eye on our Corona FAQs, which we constantly update and respond to new developments.
