The content and events found at the Political Festival of Europe are shaped by our many organising partners. On the program, you will find not only debates with prominent speakers on our main stages, but also plenty of talks, workshops and hearing in tents spread across the streets of Mariager as well as European music.

All content and events will be spread across:

  • our main stage
  • three thematic stages 
  • seven thematic areas 

On the stages, we will have key note speeches, debates, potlock debates, panels, round-tables and other activities. These are organised by partner organisers who buy timeslots of 45 minutes or more. In between and after these activities, there will be concerts on these same stages.

The seven themes will then shape the streets and cozy squares in the town centre of Mariager into thematic areas designated to Business, Climate, Culture, Democracy, Health, Technology and Foreign Policiy. Furthermore, there will be a press tent and an area for European and national parties from across Europe. 

The participating organisations will be located in the thematic areas according to their sector. Here is where they will have tents and space to host their own activities on European issues.

The programme is currently being developed and will be updated on the go.
