96% capacity and 47 sold-out concerts

Lucerne Festival’s summer of music achieves highly favorable overall results

The 2021 Summer Festival comes to an end this weekend with very favorable final results of 96% occupancy and 41,000 concertgoers; the KKL Luzern Concert Hall was limited to a maximum capacity of 1,000 people. With this year’s “crazy” theme as the common denominator, Lucerne Festival offered 89 events between 10 August and 12 September for a wide variety of target audiences; 20 of these events were free. 47 concerts were sold out; the 29 symphony concerts attained an average capacity of 99%.

Tonight’s concert by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Herbert Blomstedt is sold out. Tickets are still available for the two performances of the “Hans and Greta” family concert tomorrow, Saturday. The Festival will conclude with concerts tomorrow and Sunday evening by the Budapest Festival Orchestra and Iván Fischer; the soloist on Saturday evening will once again be “artiste étoile” Yuja Wang.
