Martin Grubinger and his Percussive Planet Ensemble gave the 2021 Musikfest its roaring finale! And because it was such a success, they present a new edition this year full of spectacular drum sounds - again with free admission, live and open air on the market square. For his ultimate percussion show, the charming percussionist from Salzburg is expanding his ensemble with a big band with a large wind section, keyboard, grand piano and rhythm section. When Grubinger and his comrades-in-arms get stuck into their impressive arsenal of instruments, the result is explosive, virtuosic and extravagant. Percussion in its many forms is celebrated with the highest level of dedication, dizzying acrobatics and without boundaries. This guarantees the zenith of percussion art that will get under your skin like nothing else. Rhythms and melodies from classical, jazz, funk and rock are combined into a completely new wild collage of styles - a concert of superlatives!
