The Bavarian Bassdays 2024

October 26 - October 28

Bavarian Bassdays 2023

History of the Event

The Bavarian Bassdays were organized for the first time in 2014 by double bassist and music pedagogue Claus Freudenstein. Since then, they have become one of the most outstanding festivals of its kind. The world’s most important double bass and electric bass performers come as lecturers and musicians. Hundreds of participants of all ages, from minibassists to professionals get together at the Bavarian Bassdays.

The Bavarian Bassdays promote and represent the double bass and electric bass in all their facets. They are an intercultural, musical overall concept for the education and training of musicians. The double bass (and electric bass), rooted in all cultures and musical styles, serves as a perfect instrument for this. Thus, the Bavarian Bassdays offer the opportunity not only to learn the instrument, but also to deepen their understanding from a social, cultural and music theory perspective. This is done in the context of a wide range of courses, ranging from individual to group lessons. Through the participation of international lecturers, the Bavarian Bassdays also promote intercultural exchange. For example, top musicians from Germany, Italy, France, Israel, Australia, Switzerland, Norway, Romania, Austria, Spain, the USA and Mexico will meet at the Bavarian Bassdays.
