Elevate Festival

ELEVATE is an annual festival held in various central venues around the Schlossberg in Graz, Austria. With its unique combination of critical poltical discourse and contemporary music and art, the Elevate Festival stands out of the “usual” festival circus. The organizational body is a not-for-profit association. Therefore all the discourse and film programme of the festival is free of charge.

For the 11th consecutive year, the Elevate festival for music, art and political discourse will take place in Graz from October 22–25, 2015.
