International Buskers Festival

Thanks for being a part of it.

Top-class artists and musicians from all over the world come to Freistadt each year to show their skills at Festival Fantastika. The medieval old-town turns into a stage for clowns, artists, acrobats, musicians and fireshows.

We are looking forward to laughing and marveling together with you and artists from all over the world at the next Festival Fantastika.

Here's a brief look back and a big thank you for Fantastika 2023.

Admission is free. And that also means: The artists don't get a fixed fee. They get what you put in their hat after the show. So please be generous!
