Bardentreffen world music festival is the largest annual event to take place within the historic centre of Nuremberg. For its 40th edition, which takes course over three days more than 200.000 visitors of all ages gather at eight different stages to listen to world music artists as well as singer-songwriters from all over the planet for free.
