BAM! is the festival of Berlin’s independent music theatre scene. It focuses on Berlin as a melting pot of its international scene of music theatre actors beyond the traditional opera form and on the variety and diversity of their ways of playing and expressing themselves.

BAM! presents a densely packed programme within just a few days and concentrates on a narrowly defined area of closely connected venues within the space of Berlin Mitte. Its centre has been the Volksbühne am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz since 2019.

BAM!‘s next staging is planned for 2024. Browse the archive of previous editions here.
