AN ECONOMIC MOTOR
The economy and the Salzburg Festival? This is often reduced to mere “indirect profitability” benefiting the state. However, as the world’s leading festival of music and theatre, the Salzburg Festival creates far more than mere fiscal effects – as the centre of an organically grown economic ecosystem, it fulfils many functions and affects Salzburg profoundly as a location for business and companies.
