The International Festival Maritim has run for 25 years, hosting international artists from all over the world from the international ‘sea music’ scene including Celtic and Irish music. This years event is expected to bring up to 100,000 people to party until the whale pine on the banks of the Weser River start to shake. The musical style will alternate between Celtic punk, shanties, beautiful sea ballads and various versions of Irish music.

On the Saturday, Vegesack’s city center will become an additional mega-stage when the groups do their utmost to shake up the shopping mile. From fascinating sounds to cultural and culinary delights, games, and fun: the supporting program offers many other highlights, for example a tempting range of yummy food and beverage offers, the “La Paloma” beach bar, and the “Pirate Children’s Land”.

The Mega Shanty Slam on the big Stage in the Stadtgarten is an absolute highlight and will definitely fascinate. The aerial fireworks over the Weser River will mark the sparkling finale of the festival.

The International Festival Maritim, with 100,000 visitors annually, has long since turned into an essential event highlight in North Germany. Festival Maritim and the “International Festival Maritim e.V.” booster club are dedicated to the preservation of maritime musical cultural assets – folk, rock, shanties as well as ships, good food and drink.

The open-air spectacle –which is unique in Germany – hosts musicians from, among others, Ireland, England, Belgium, France, Austria, Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands and Poland, and offers a lively scenario along the Maritime Mile with its great number of attractions and exhibitions. There are exhibitions by well-known fine artists, robust cutter pulling or water and light installations that ensure an enchanting atmosphere around the “Museumshaven” with its rustic traditional ships.
