Salzburg Festival / Project Sponsors


Project Sponsors

Without our Project Sponsors, our programme would be poorer and less varied. Through their donations, they finance additional projects which are important to us but for which we have no money. We are very grateful to them.

Roche has enabled the Salzburg Festival to present contemporary music since 2007. In addition to supporting Salzburg contemporary, every year 100 university students have the opportunity to participate in a one-week program of workshops, lectures and concerts.

Of course, we are available personally, should you have questions or enquiries, and can help you design a sponsoring package tailored to your wishes and needs.



“Aren’t you afraid that the sponsors will try to influence your program?” is a common question in the arts sections of various newspapers, especially since we have been so successful in acquiring sponsors. And I can always answer both spontaneously and honestly: No, I am not afraid of that. Our sponsors are far too intelligent not to know that trying to influence the content of our program would have a boomerang effect. On the contrary, I hope our sponsors continue to influence us, in the sense that they make it possible to implement projects that we could not realize otherwise for lack of money. Therefore, on behalf of the Festival, I would very much like to thank our sponsors, donors, supporters and friends as well as the public authorities subsidizing the Festival for their generous support.
