On 22 September 2022 it's "Helgaaa!" again.

The Helga! Festival Award goes into its 9th round this year.

It's the first real festival summer after the forced pandemic break - after doing things differently and persevering. Even though the aftermath is far from over, we want to celebrate this new, real festival summer in 2022. Once again this year, a multi-member jury of experts will award prizes to the nation's hottest, most creative, funniest and floweriest festivals in crisp categories.

We are also happy about our continuing partnerships with HÖME Magazine - "Home of Festival Culture" and LiveKomm, LiveMusikKommission - Association of Music Venues in Germany e.V., who will support us as media, communication and competence partners. 

The Helga! Festival Award has been presented at Reeperbahn Festival since 2013 and honours the best national festivals of the year.
