A new record for visitors and revenue has been set at Salzburg’s Whitsun Festival. The Festival, which ran from 17-20 May, boasted 13,450 visitors from 43 countries, who spent 1.3 million Euros in tickets.
I am very happy to be able to bring music and pleasure to Salzburg until 2016. I look forward to carry out many ideas at the Whitsun Festival, of which I have dreamt of for years. I am very thankful that such a huge and interested audience is so enthusiastic about us being adventurous.
President of the Salzburg Festival, Helga Rabl-Stadler, is delighted with Bartoli’s record,
I am happy about the increase in the numbers of visitors: 7,600 visitors came in 2011 and one year later, there were 10,520 visitors. A new record was set in 2013, when 2,900 additional tickets were sold. May has become a first strong festival month of the year.
