Summer in the City

Every year, up to 70,000 people gather at the most beautiful squares in Mainz for open-air concerts to see their personal stars and starlets. Places like the historic Citadel, the Mainzer Volkspark, the market square and many more are transformed into atmospheric open-air concert locations.

Originally started as "Mainzer tent festival" in the Volkspark in 1997, the festival changed in 2010 to the now nationally known open air concert series SUMMER IN THE CITY Mainz. This year again, top-class stars of different music genres - such as Deep Purple, Sarah Connor, Moses Pelham and SEEED - can be expected.
