BAM! Berliner Festival für aktuelles Musiktheater

With its independent music theater community, Berlin is one of the most important centers for contemporary music theater. No other location in the world features a larger number of artists, groups and ensembles who have dedicated themselves to an alternative form of music theater that goes beyond opera. BAM! is the festival for this community. With a jam-packed schedule of programming offering exciting insight into new paths for music theater, every two years it attracts audiences from all throughout Germany as well as abroad for four exhilarating days. Since 2019, BAM! has been taking place in cooperation with Volksbühne Berlin.



Presented by ZMB - Zeitgenössisches Musiktheater Berlin 

The BAM! Festival takes place every other year. The next edition is expected in 2024.
