From 09. to 11. May 2018 Frankfurt is once again firmly in women's hands. Then, for the seventh time, the W-Festival, once Women of the World Festival, will take place at the Alte Oper, the Gibson Club, the Ignatz Bubis Community Centre and the Speicher in Bad Homburg. Frankfurt is perfectly suited as a platform for a multinational women's festival, which is why it is hardly surprising that the popularity of the festival's events is constantly growing. The dream of the organizers is that this festival will no longer be limited to female musicians in a few years' time, but that female artists from other fields such as literature and art will also participate in the festival with their creations.
Although this may still be music of the future, the team around organizer Klaus Bönisch (KBK) and artistic director Bernd Hoffmann is definitely on the right track. Of course, the artists who will perform in 2018 are the first testimony to this. But there will certainly be an attractive supporting programme again this year, which will carry the spirit of the festival out of the concert halls into the city.
