The Festival de Wiltz is set to return to this northern Luxembourgish town from Saturday 29 June to Friday 19 July 2024.

The lineup for this summer includes a Luxembourgish operetta, a Nouveau Cirque group from West Africa and a performance by British singer-songwriter Birdy, among others.

Created in 1953, the Festival de Wiltz is among the oldest festivals in Luxembourg. According to the organisers, it is this rich tradition that obliges them to constantly develop new cultural formats in order to ensure that diversity continues to flourish. This year, the festival's cultural management team has joined as co-producer for the operetta An der Schwemm (29 June). Luxembourg composer Lou Koster arranged An der Schwemm in the 1920s with a libretto by Batty Weber. The result is "a little masterpiece" in collaboration with the Escher Theater, the Orchestre de Chambre du Luxembourg (OCL) and the INECC Luxembourg choir, which will unfold against the backdrop of the Amphitheatre in Wiltz.

With Yé (l'eau) by the Compagnie Circus Baobab (30 June), the organisers have chosen a collective of circus artists from West Africa who will deliver a Nouveau Cirque spectacle with acrobatic performances.

Hailing from Madrid, Alfonso Losa (5 July) and his ensemble will delight audiences with the flamenco performance Espacio Creativo.

A performance of Petterson and Findus (7 July) will see Junges Theater Bonn bring the lovable characters of Swedish author Sven Nordqvist to life - a classic for all theatre fans aged four and up.

The top act in this year's lineup is British singer-songwriter Birdy (15 July) with her latest album Portraits (2023), which has been streamed 21 million times worldwide to date. Birdy has been writing songs since she was a child and captivated the music world with her enchanting voice - the pop star achieved her international breakthrough with "People Help The People".

Altin Gün (19 July) from Amsterdam will also bring their psychedelic rock, deep funk and the diverse traditions of Turkish folk music to Wiltz this summer. The fusion artists are known for their "mesmerising" live performances around the world.

The organisers (COOPERATIONS asbl) confirmed they would announce additional names and events in the coming weeks.
