Even with the best will in the world, a festival such as ours must still be financed. Since we receive no state funding, sponsors are particularly valuable for us. Alongside proceeds from ticket sales, the contributions of these partners make up a large part of our budget.

The entire necessary technical infrastructure must be constructed whilst preserving the beauty of square. This involves the installation of the main stage, seating terraces, elaborate light and sound equipment, as well as a village of containers in the backstage area in which we live and work practically 24 hours a day for the duration of the festival. To this must be added performers’ fees for all appearing artists and orchestra members, staff costs, and marketing and operational costs. Whilst the costs are high, the festival fortunately enjoys an international reputation that makes it an excellent opportunity for potential sponsors. This means that despite a generally difficult financial situation, our partners can provide a level of security that allows us to plan more effectively than in earlier times, and to keep the ticket prices stable.

We would like here to take the opportunity to thank all supporters, partners and sponsors who have aided us over twenty years and who have been an integral part of the festival’s success.
