• Live Musik in der Schmiede
  • Schmiede 2013 RETURN


Schmiede Hallein is a festival of producers. Every year, around 250 participants  and guests from around the world, along with some 2,000 visitors, gather here for 10 days. The result is a network currently made up of over 650 creative minds from more than 20 nations. The driving forces and active participants at the Schmiede are producers from the realms of art, new media and culture. The creative sphere ranges from the visual arts, graphic arts, music, Internet development, programming, blogging and photography, to film, dance, fashion, furniture- and event design.


Schmiede Hallein is a cultural initiative with regional roots on the international stage. Annually the Schmiede provides 10 days of support, space and time for participants to grow and develop. The entire Schmiede process is all about development - experienced together and self-driven - within the artistic and cultural creative realm.

The productions are presented to the general public within the framework of the SchmiedeWerkschau. The extensive annual program of side events (20 - 30 in number) is freely accessible to everyone who is interested.
