Get out. Think!

You need food for new thoughts, want to discover trends and sustainably shape the future? Then let yourself get carried away by the most innovative thinkers, leaders and creators of our time. We give you context for the global issues that will move us today and tomorrow.

Experience our 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.

Unusual location preferred

The OSFC located as an open-air event midst the greenery of the official festival bustle. As atmospheric as it gets!

Lecture on the day before

There are wise words instead of music – with and by international speakers and on the most exciting topics. For listening and letting it sink in.

Need for talks

Whilst having a drink with speakers and moderators you can itensify what you have heard – personally and at eye level.

Frontally mixed

Now it’s time to get down to business – speakers, opponents, professional inquirers and you in the middle of the development site. To the discussion disco: this way!

On draft

Action comes after listening. This applies equally to speakers and listeners. Get on the dance floor and into the experience.

So very close

Our speakers are standing on stage, sitting next to you and leaning against the same bar. One speaker, countless points of contact.

Thinking out of the box

We are all industries and impart knowledge and inspiration from a wide variety of areas. Interdisciplinary FTW!

Eyes open in the festival traffic

There is always more to discover: on the festival site, in the program or about the person sitting next to. Watch out.

Genuinely authentic

Open Source has always been more than music. Whether as installation, performance, interaction … the idea is actively alive with us.

Open-air networking

In front of or on stage, whether visitors or speakers: Everyone is interested in creativity, innovation and people.

Delicious support for the energy budget

Of course there is also something to chow: breakfast, lunch, dinner – taste and time freely selectable.
