Wow, finally! The protagonists of our festival have arrived! We have exchanged countless of messages with them, we have to them by phone many times, and we have prepared everything in order to offer them a perfectly prepared stage setting. Now we are able to welcome them all, to finally see them again, live.
The young artists were facing huge challenges with the pandemic, some of them could not rehearse for a long time, had no performances. Now, there is this great joy. The joy of being able to go out on stage again, to show their impressive art to the audience again.
Young Stages makes you feel at home, everyone is so welcoming, happy and excited! It’s beautiful! Not yet mentioning how beautiful that stage is!
You know, to be part of the festival at THIS moment means much more! The resilience of YOUNG STAGE is inspiring! It is insane how hard this festival has worked to be on stage again. I couldn’t be happier and more grateful to perform alongside these inspiring artists and professionals. Art is in the air! – Diego Salles, artist at YOUNG STAGE 2021
Our band Al Jawala, which has accompanied YOUNG STAGE for more than 10 years, is also back. As well as our two hosts Max Loong and Alexandra Maurer, they are all on fire.
Artists, show crew, presenters and band are already rehearsing. And we can already reveal one thing: This show is going to rock! You can already catch more exciting glimpses behind the scenes on our social media channels.
