Last chance: Tollwood festival in Munich runs through Tuesday
June 27, 2012
The Tollwood Summer Festival opens Friday in Olympiapark in Munich, Germany, and runs through July 24.
Tollwood offers many top name acts, with 2012’s line-up including Lou Reed, Billy Idol, Katie Melua, Lady Antebellum and other well-known names.
But it’s more than just a music fest. It also serves as a forum for social and environmental issues. Tollwood’s “Market of Ideas” is made up of more than 200 stalls offering fair-trade crafts and organic foods.
A theatrical production, “As the World Tipped” (July 5-10), depicts the impact of an environmental catastrophe. The exhibition “Vorratskammer,” or “Pantry,” illustrates the phenomenon of food waste against the backdrop of a hungry world.
Entry to the festival grounds is free, although tickets are required for the headline acts.
