Since the 1990s, herbstbar has been a crucial and legendary component of steirischer herbst. Whereas in recent years, the herbstbar was transformed into a festival center, starting with 2018 steirischer herbst wants to focus specifically and consciously on returning to the classic herbstbar—to bring the “bar” part of its name to the fore, creating a place where the audience is invited to come together with the artists, the team, and the makers behind steirischer herbst, where feedback and inspiration can take place directly.
This year, the herbstbar features musical playlists by Volksfronten artists, who express their understanding of the theme through music.
