We mourn

It is with great sadness that we announce that Floridus Kaiser, Commercial Director of the festival, passed away completely unexpectedly on Friday, 17 April. His commitment to social and ecological issues left its mark on both the steirischer herbst team and its programme in the far too short time that we worked together. His death leaves a huge gap – we will miss Floridus!
