Become a sponsor



Supporting the Musikfest Bremen has a long tradition - since its foundation, numerous companies and private sponsors have supported the festival with Hanseatic loyalty in order to bring cultural highlights to Bremen and the north-west region between the rivers Ems, Weser and Elbe. There are many different ways to sponsor the festival, always tailored to your needs and carefully considered together with the artistic director and the Musikfest team.

In this way, Musikfest culture and corporate culture combine to fulfil individual wishes and common goals in the name of culture. The loyalty of existing sponsors and partnerships confirms that this form of co-operation is the right one: with the personal "touch" and great attention to detail, sponsors and artists alike feel at home at Musikfest Bremen. Through this co-operation and the trust that grows from it, real "artist" friendships develop, which help to maintain and continuously develop both the familiarity with and the artistic quality of the festival. If you decide to support the Musikfest Bremen, we will be happy to sit down with you to find the best path for you.


Main sponsors join the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen to provide long-term financial security for the festival and are an important pillar in the realisation of the entire festival programme. It goes without saying that sponsorship includes exclusive concerts, the organisation of private concerts, invitations to private events, all marketing services as well as an all-round service from ordering complimentary tickets and purchased tickets through to support in organising receptions. The aim is to join forces in order to further develop the festival.

Project sponsors make a major contribution to strengthening and enhancing cross-festival projects, concert cycles, artist residencies or co-operations with internationally renowned festivals and institutions such as the Salzburg Mozart Week, the Festival d'Aix-en-Provence or the Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord Paris. Extensive marketing services emphasising your role as project sponsor are included in the service package, as well as prioritised ticket orders, invitations to exclusive Musikfest events and the provision of ticket contingents, as well as the organisation of receptions.

Foundations support a broad range of Festival areas, depending on their own orientation and the amount of the support, and receive a donation certificate, the required payment vouchers and any analyses they may require.

Concert sponsors take on the exclusive sponsorship of a mutually chosen festival concert. Numerous marketing benefits including exclusive visibility of the sponsor in the concert promotion are part of the service, as are a number of complimentary tickets, the option to book priority tickes, invitations to exclusive Musikfest events, support with and coordination of receptions and much more.

Co-sponsors join other partners to support a Music Festival concert. Invitations to exclusive events, complimentary tickets and support for the organisation of receptions are included in the package of services in addition to marketing services in return calling attention to the role as co-sponsor.

Corporate sponsors are companies that support the Musikfest both financially and non-materially, but do not wish to support a specific Musikfest concert. Board members or managing directors are invited to exclusive Musikfest events. In addition, companies receive an employee discount for selected concerts and, depending on the level of sponsorship, complimentary tickets.

Concert venue partners can enrich the Musikfest by providing unconventional venues such as industrial halls, warehouses, ships or trains. This not only creates a unique exclusivity and originality, but also makes it possible to discover the region culturally - which is valued by concert-goers and sponsors alike. Marketing benefits and complimentary tickets for the concert are part of the service package.

Districts can gain great reputational benefits with cultural attractions, instead of  having to start the laborious and much more costly process of organising their own cultural excellence initiative aimed at achieving a supra-regional impact. Through comprehensive and top-class marketing activities by the festival as a whole as well as the individual concerts, the Musikfest Bremen has an impact far beyond the region. The district fulfils its social and cultural responsibility and thus helps to attract skilled workers to the region.

Towns and boroughs can benefit from the established reputation of the »Musikfest Bremen« as a premium cultural brand without having to launch their own advertising campaign, which would involve a considerably higher investment amounting to millions. The nationwide, highly professional marketing of Musikfest Bremen provides a considerable image boost for towns and boroughs.

Patrons support the festival programme as a whole, specific artistic projects, the promotion of young talent or artist residencies, depending on their personal preferences, and receive highly personalised Musikfest experiences.
