Pflasterspektakel presents the variety of street performance art: comedy and clownery, juggling, puppet theatre, acrobatics, fire and aerial artistic, dance and all kind of music. Let yourself be amazed by outstanding performances from artists from all over the world and local talents.
About 100 companies and performers transform the city centre of Linz into a vibrant stage of artistic diversity. Street performing is immediate and direct. Creativity, spontaneity and improvisation characterize this special art form, which unfolds on the streets and squares and does not require a stage or large-scale technology. Special programs such as the revue shows at the circus tent or the musically nightline complete the street shows which start every hour on the hour at 40 performance locations. During the three days of Pflasterspektakel about 800 performances take place. Artists don’t get a fee as they perform for the donations from the audience.

Program Booklet & Daily Program

At the beginning of July all artists of Pflasterspektakel 2023 will be presented online and in the program booklet. The schedule of the performances is presented in the daily program, as the immediacy of street performing is also reflected in the program design: Artists choose their performance times and locations every morning of the respective festival day. The daily program is available via newsletter and as download, as well as in printed form at all Infopoints during the festival times.
