Pink Future Festival

Pink Future Festival

"By young people for all people!" The youth culture festival PINK FUTURE will take place on 6 and 7 July 2024.

In its second edition, under the patronage of Lord Mayor Wolfram Leibe, the festival invites you to the Palastgarten and Willy-Brandt-Platz in Trier.

Admission to the festival is free!

The festival is organised by young people between the ages of 14 and 20. The team, consisting of 20 people, acts according to the festival's narrative: "We are agents for a life worth living. The future is PINK." They were inspired by the song "Zukunft Pink" by Peter Fox, which says: "All times black, I see the future pink // If you ask me, everything will be fine, my child // Do your thing but don't look for meaning // And what's not there, you have to invent"

The PINK FUTURE Youth Culture Festival, which took place for the first time in September 2023, offers a colourful programme for families and children. With music on a concert stage, AI theatre, skate sessions, graffiti, dance and democracy workshops, the young people have their say and put their vision of the future up for discussion through the festival design. They give regional initiatives a platform, invite Lord Mayor Wolfram Leibe to discuss socially relevant topics and celebrate the unique opportunity to organise a festival that reflects their ideas and interests.

The young people's organisational team is supported at the financial and implementation level by a team of experienced actors from non-profit organisations. The project is organised by Kunstflotte Trier gUG, le filou - Jugendkunstschule Trier, Kulturkarawane gUG and Servicestelle Kulturelle Bildung Rheinland-Pfal

Click me and find out more 🙂

In all our events and projects, it is important to us to make culture accessible to all people. This is especially true for people with disabilities.

That is why we are always working on the Accessibility of our cultural programme. We are aware that we are often unable to provide complete accessibility. But together with you, we endeavour to make our events as accessible as possible.

At our Information stand on the festival site our team is always available to answer your questions. You can also contact us by e-mail or telephone at any time.

The Pink Future Festival has:

  • Lawn gridsThis means that people in wheelchairs can easily reach all catering areas and can also be directly in front of the stage in the optimal sound area.
  • Audio transcription on screens to the left and right of the stage so that people with hearing impairments can follow the stage programme without having to use an external app on their mobile phone.
  • 10 blindFind boxes for people with visual impairments, which acoustically describe the route to the catering and toilets and make it possible to experience our art exhibition acoustically. You can find the app for using the blind boxes here.
  • One Euro key for access to the barrier-free public toilet facilities.

We are committed to the planning, organisation and implementation of our events along the 17 global sustainability goals.

These include:

  • The participative Planning, organisation and implementation of the festival.
  • Observance of the 3R rule "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" along the entire planning process.
  • Energy efficiency: 80% of the main stage are realised by means of Solar technology operated.

We see ourselves as co-learners at eye level who create a framework for joint learning.

Together with you, we want to talk about the topic of fast fashion. We will analyse the consumption of textiles in the world in a playful way. It is particularly important for us to exchange ideas with you: your opinions, experiences and ideas are a central component of our workshops. Together, we want to develop perspectives on what a fairer world could look like and create visions for the future. You don't need any special prior knowledge!
