Experience everything from workshops to artist talks, pop-up events, free family activities, food, drinks and much more.

ILT's Festival Square is open throughout the festival from May 23-26.

Multicultural kitchen

Hungry? Bispehavens multicultural kitchen at ILT Festival Square is the place to go! Bispehavens kitchen is based in western Aarhus, in a residential area with over 60 different nationalities and therefore has a very large and diverse food culture. You will find both classic and newly interpreted dishes like you have never tasted them before - yum!

Wine, beer and coffee

Take a break in the sun between the performances and have a drink. The coffee shop serves freshly brewed coffee from the highest quality beans from Pascucci - one of Italy's famous roasters. Besides coffee, there's also chai latte, hot cocoa, tea, water and an assortment of cakes. AIA Tranbjerg's drinks cart sells beer, wine and water for the extra thirsty. We have something for everyone!

Free activitites for kids and their families

Come and see "I want to live in a zoo" and other sweet and quirky international short films when Film i Skoven visits the ILT Festival. Normally, the Film Festival in the Forest takes place deep in Riis Forrest in Aarhus, but on May 26, they move their tent to ILT, where they will show films and have a fun and creative workshop, where we will cut, paste and color wild and cute animals together.

TIME: Sun. 10.00 AM - 3.00 PM >

Free activitites for kids and their families

Look for the Art Camper at Bispetorv during the ILT Festival and find the joy of animating and creating small film stories, just as great-grandfather or perhaps great-great-grandfather did it. Rediscover old forms of animation like thaumatrops, flipbooks and the Zoetrope. If you do not know what these are then come and see for yourself - it will be fun and everyone can join! Both big and small.

TIME: Sat. 11:00 - 15:00

Free activitites for kids and their families

Concert with Niklas Runge

Experience the Aarhus born multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Niklas Runge at this year's ILT Festival where he captivates audiences with his personal songs and a silky and heartfelt vocal.

Spoken Word

Poetry Slam is a battle of poetic words, it's the freedom to stand on the stage and say what you want - and it's crazy entertaining! Experience it at ILT Festival Square.

TIME: Fri. 8:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Story Slam

Story Slam is a storytelling competition where ordinary people tell real stories from their lives. Four narrators fight for the audience's favor at Bispetorv during the ILT Festival. Each narrator brings two self-experienced stories, and along the way, the audience votes for their favorite story slammer.

TIME: Sat. 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM
