This festival features a variety of musical genres with national and international bands and solo artists from the jazz and classical worlds as well as folk, pop, indie and world music. Dance and theater performances complete the program.
The st. katharina open air has taken place for more than 20 years and is therefore a permanent feature of the Nuremberg festival scene, drawing visitors from the entire region. The ruins are also a venue during the Blue Night and the Bardentreffen, which takes place at the end of the st. katharina open air.
In addition, the st. katharina open air and Club Stereo host the Slow Down Festival - a festival within the festival with a picnic in the ruins.
