In two weeks it’s finally time – the TransCentury Update invites you to four days full of musical discoveries. Here you can put together your festival schedule.

“Back to listening” is the motto of this year’s fifth TransCentury Update Festival. And this year it actually works. After the festival was canceled at short notice last year due to tightened corona measures, the anticipation this year is all the greater.

In 2022, the TransCentury will offer an exciting music and cultural program over four days and six locations with sounds from indie, kraut, rock, electronica and experimental. With well-known acts and many great new discoveries. Here is an overview of the entire program and a preview (there is a separate YouTube playlist for each day):
