The Night of Unity at the festival on the 2nd of October until midnight offers live entertainment from music and culture at the event locations around the Binnenalster and beyond. From 7 pm, cultural venues and many other institutions in Hamburg’s city centre will be opening their doors for Unity Night. Readings, improvised theatre, poetry slams, talk shows, live music, art installations and other creative surprises invite you to stroll through the city and linger where the fancy takes you. The stages, food stands and a choice of other Festival zones, including the Länder Mile, the Young Future Lab, the Queer Area and the Reeperbahn stand, will be open until late at night.
