Festival Musik und Politik
From 1970 to 1990 there was a festival of political songs in Berlin that provided a meeting place for politically involved musicians from around the globe—with a like-minded audience. From 1991 to 1994 the association ZwischenWelt-Förderverein continued the tradition of the political song festival along with a progressive Cultural festival. After the break-up of this association and until 1999 no festivals took place. In 2000 a successful small-scale revival of the festival took place. The new orientation of the festival manifested itself in 2001 with the festival’s new name—Festival Musik und Politik.
