Tête-à-Tête Festival, Rastatt, Germany


XTRAX is working with Rastatt’s International Street Arts Festival, tête-à-tête, 24th-29th May 2016 in Germany, to create a Spotlight on UK Street Arts.


This collaboration is designed to promote UK Street Arts in Germany, and broker relationships between UK and German outdoor promoters and artists.

This project includes opportunities for outdoor promoters, event organisers and other industry professionals to enjoy a rich programme including:

This is a fantastic opportunity for any UK and international programmer interested in learning more about the German Street Arts sector and seeing outdoor work from 40+ companies from across Europe. We expect a number of Festival Directors from Germany, as well as industry professionals and representatives from the German Street Arts Network “Bundesverband” (similar to ISAN) to attend the festival providing an opportunity to learn more about the German outdoor festival sector.

Please note: We cannot offer any financial support towards your travel expenses or accommodation, but the festival will offer hotel rooms at a subsided rate (approx. 70€ per night) and an opportunity to eat with other promoters and artists for 20€ per day including lunch and dinner. We can also help you find the best travel options.
