Audi Summer Concerts 2019

Audi has been involved in cultural arts for more than 50 years: The desire to foster and support culture originated in 1962, when employees initiated the founding of the Audi Philharmonic Wind Orchestra. The cultural program Audi ArtExperience now includes various priorities, from the program’s own formats like the Audi Summer Concerts and the Audi Youth Choir Academy to sponsorship of high-caliber cultural institutions like the Salzburg Festival. Culture at Audi stands for the dialog with artists and creative minds from the fields of music, design and visual arts as well as film and theater. This self-image is lived individually at all Audi sites.

    Audi is making the history of the Salzburg Festival “experienceable”

    Virtual time travel in an Audi e-tron: At the Salzburg Festival 2021, Audi is linking tradition with innovation and inviting all festival visitors and interested parties on an eventful drive through this history of the festival. In the back of an Audi e-tron, guests approach several locations that played a particular role in the festival’s development. That journey utilizes technology that was originally advanced by Audi and the company holoride and that carries passengers off to three-dimensional worlds via virtual reality glasses while integrating vehicle movements into the experience in real time. About 1,000 experience drives are planned during the course of the festival. In the process, Audi is retrospectively celebrating its 25th anniversary as a leading sponsor and the 100th anniversary of the Salzburg Festival after these rides were canceled last year.
