Founded in 2006 the Sommerblut Festival is a registered association dedicated to alternative cultural projects in Cologne and Europe. With our festival we want to provide a stage for political and cultural themes and promote discussion and development within society. For this reason we strive each year to create a cultural program which is open, alternative, international, diverse and multi-faceted. Our projects are intended to be inclusive and professional, evocative and political, empathetic and peaceful. We move along the boundaries of conventional viewing habits and also go beyond these boundaries.

Let’s go!

With us the stage is set for creatively breaking taboos. With us the impetus is given for social discussion. With us the audience is shown a new horizon and a different perspective. 

Come closer!

In order to achieve our goals, we choose to work together with people who have handicaps, with socially disadvantaged people, with experts from various walks of life and with professional artists to create our performances and our programs. We hope to provide a platform for the artistic work of people who experience different realities of life. Creative work which draws its value and its appeal from the particular experience of each individual. To this end we foster the development of in-house productions in the areas of theatre, music and dance, addressing cultural change and current questions within society. 

Different in a good way. 

The success of our projects in recent years proves how exciting and valuable culture outside of the mainstream can be. Many of the projects have had far-reaching influence within the city of Cologne, as well as beyond the city limits and even the borders of the country.

Bring your feelings.
