Ksenia Ravvina and Alexandar Hadjiev are thrilled to take on the artistic direction of the festival for the years 2024 to 2026. Empowered by their extensive experience in the international interdisciplinary performance and theater field, as well as their commitment to fostering cultural education, they are prepared to embark on a new chapter for the Hauptsache Frei Festival. 

A fantastic festival team comes together, and the goals for the upcoming editions are clearly outlined: to strengthen the Hamburg arts scene and its actors, to nurture artistic diversity, to highlight accessibility and inclusion at all levels, to extend a warm welcome to our valued audience and to ignite international artistic exchanges. 

Save the date: 05. - 09. Juni 2024, and bottoms up to the 10th anniversary of the festival!
