August 23, 2019 to September 01, 2019

„Industriebrachenumgestaltung“ – ibug for short – is moving this year to Reichenbach in the Vogtland region for its 14th edition. From mid-August, a former railway depot will become a canvas and playground for artists* from all over the world. For two weekends – from 23 to 25 August and from 30 August to 1 September – curious people and art lovers can then experience a symbiosis of painting and graffiti, illustrations and installations, performance and multimedia in a temporary exhibition. There will also be a colourful festival programme with guided tours and films, discussions and artist talks, an art market and music. Between the festival weekends there will also be offers for school classes.

Also in 2019, creative people from home and abroad have announced their presence at the ibug.

Old friends like Kera (Germany), Benjamin Duquenne (France), HNRX (Austria), Jo Higgs (Great Britain), Insomundo (Switzerland), Frau Albert (Germany), Superfreunde (Germany), Tape Over (Germany), Tape That (Germany), Odour Odessa (Germany), Peter Fahr (Germany), Robert Deutsch (Germany), Tropical Heins (Germany) or Uder&Schindl (Germany) and new faces like Alex Senna, Gabriel Ribeiro and TRECO (all Brazil), Cristian Scutaru (Romania), Danny Rumbl and Floor Milou Smit (Netherlands), Darry Perier (France), Gviiie, Taquen and Peri Helio (all Spain), Johan (Sweden), Los Calladitos (Mexico), Mots and Nuno Alecrim (Portugal), Plan B (Finland), Ivan Ninety, Vasyabasyo and Vladimir Abikh (all Russia), Wong Ting Fung (Hong Kong), Xuan (Germany/USA) or KollektivPlusX (Germany) will be present.

A total of 370 applications were received for ibug this year from 41 countries, including Tunisia, Colombia, Kazakhstan, Bulgaria,Australia, Israel, Dubai, Hungary, Argentina, Canada, Iceland, Lithuania, Macedonia, China, Morocco, Chile, Estonia and Finland. 78 international artists* and collectives are now invited to the festival.

Since the first industrial redevelopment in 2006, the ibug has developed into a world-famous festival for urban art. Traditionally, on the last weekend of August, a fallow land in western Saxony will be opened as a temporary exhibition. The international artists* focus on experiments with genres, materials and techniques as well as the past of the fallow land and its architecture.

Festival tickets can be pre-bought online as of now. The ticket prices range from 10,- for a day ticket to 7,- for a discounted day ticket. A weekend ticket costs 20,- and the discounted weekend ticket 17,-. When pre-purchasing the ticket online families with two grownups and a maximum of three children under the age of 17 pay 25,- for one festival day. This way, visitors can save up to 5,- as to buying their ticket at the festival sale.

For the festival organizers the ticket pre-sale also means a certain planning-reliability. Afterall, the funds from the cultural foundation of Saxony (Kulturstiftung des Freistaates Sachsen), the city of Reichenbach, the Kulturraum Vogtland and the ideas competition of “So geht Sächsisch” cover only one quarter of the total expenses of this year’s ibug. The remaining three quaters are covered by the entrance fees. When purchasing the special supporter ticket visitors can therefore additionally support the ibug.
