OSF Congress

The OSF Congress was created in 2018 as an extension of the Open Source Festival (OSF) - a music and creativity festival that has existed since 2000 - in terms of both content and time. The festival has long been a platform for all directions of artistic practice, whether music, visual arts, fashion, design, photography, architecture or performance, and sees itself as a place for experimentation and communication. On the day before the festival and within the already established festival setting on the horse race track in Düsseldorf, the OSF Congress invites creative open-air exchange with around 25 international and interdisciplinary speakers in keynotes, talks, and panels. Experience OSF Congress 30 interdisciplinary speakers from all over the world on a unique outdoor festival ground: in keynotes, talks and panels on four stages and in the beer garden.

The event is in German and English. The German parts are not translated live.
