The huge Tollwood Summer Festival first took place in 1987. After a stream of summer festivals and winter events at the Olympia Park Munich, it is still hugely popular.
Every year, the Tollwood Summer Festival welcomes international theatre companies, pop, rock and jazz music, but for many the heart of the event lies in the many innovative pieces by less well-known artists. Cabaret and comedy entertainment is presented in front of a jury panel and the enthusiastic public. Five candidates perform ten-minute shows, which are judged by previous winners. Prize money and the chance to appear as a guest performer for a week in a Munich cabaret is awarded to the winner.

Held in a set of tents and open-air stages in Munich's Olympic Park, the atmosphere at the event is chilled. In addition to the paid evening concerts, certain tents offer free afternoon and evening entertainment. In spite of its huge success, the Tollwood Summer Festival has maintained the charm of its original incarnation as a multicultural celebration of cabaret, circus and dance. Much of this unique atmosphere is due to the mixture of international stars and local notables from Bavaria, Austria and northern Germany.

Munich's Tollwood Summer Festival is known for its persistent originality: dozens of festival performances have been honoured with awards from media and cultural institutions. All tickets for the event can be bought online at the Tollwood website.
