Current audience information

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
Dear Audience,

It is the task of Austrian health policy to protect the population as best as possible from the dangers of the ongoing Corona pandemic. As you have certainly gathered from the current announcements of the federal government and the district administration of Linz, the first opening steps for art and culture can now also be taken as the vaccination programme progresses. The LIVA Linzer Veranstaltungsgesellschaft welcomes this decision and will resume current event operations in all its venues as soon as possible from 19 May in accordance with the official requirements.

The top priority of LIVA as a leading institution and premium provider of first-class live events remains the safety of its visitors. The core of this is the comprehensive security concept in LIVA's venues, which was successfully established last year as the first among Austrian cultural organisations. In addition, the LIVA's performance activities are ideally complemented in the summer by numerous outdoor events, such as the top-class Brucknerhaus serenades, the new LINZ AG "FrischLuft" stage at the Posthof, the popular Kuddelmuddel summer workshops for children and young people, or the diverse opportunities around the LIVA sports parks Lissfeld, Pichling and Auwiesen.

"We have done an enormous amount of preparatory work in the past weeks with a comprehensive safety concept, investments in new infrastructure and an exciting summer programme and are well prepared for the long-awaited opening from the Brucknerhaus to the Posthof, in the Kuddelmuddel children's cultural centre and also in the LIVA sports facilities. I am extremely pleased that we are once again able to contribute such necessary, enriching encounters and experiences for our society with our cultural and sporting offerings, and I cordially invite our audience to join us." (Dietmar Kerschbaum, artistic director of LIVA, artistic director of the Brucknerhaus)

For continuously updated information on the individual events, please refer to the respective program pages on the homepages of the LIVA houses (Brucknerhaus, Posthof, Kuddelmuddel, LIVA Sport). The Service Center in the Brucknerhaus is now open again Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. in person and by telephone on 0732 / 775230 or by e-mail to kassa@liva.linz.at. We are looking forward to your visit!

The management of LIVA continues to be in constant contact with the authorities in order to be able to take immediate and correct action in the event of measures being necessary at short notice. Recommended protective measures and frequently asked questions on the subject of coronavirus can be found on the AGES homepage at www.ages.at/coronavirus, 24-hour hotline: 0800 555 621.


For maximum safety and a carefree visit to concerts and events at the Brucknerhaus Linz, we have summarized the following information for you.

All events take place in front of numbered seats and reduced hall seating capacity, so that a minimum distance of one to one and a half meters is guaranteed between each visitor - unless the event is attended as a group. To avoid congestion and stress, hall admission will uniformly begin one hour prior to the start of the event. A valid certificate (tested negative, recovered or vaccinated) and an FFP2 mask must be presented at the entrance. All cleaning and steward personnel have been increased to ensure maximum hygiene throughout the Brucknerhaus Linz. Breaks - if necessary - will be as short as possible. In the spirit of contact tracing, the basic customer data (name, address, telephone number/email address) of all visitors will be registered when tickets are purchased.

Please adhere to the following regulations:

  • Bring your FFP2 mask and wear it for your own protection during your entire stay at the Brucknerhaus Linz. Only a doctor's certificate, which must be carried and shown when required, exempts you from the FFP2 mask requirement.
  • Be sure to bring your proof: "tested negative, recovered or vaccinated." The proof will be checked by the security staff before entering the Brucknerhaus Linz.
    • An antigen test for self-application via QR code is valid for a maximum of 24 hours. For more information: https://www.land-oberoesterreich.gv.at/254786.htm

After approx. 15min the test result is fed into the antigen test database by the staff via the nationwide software and the result is sent to the test persons via SMS or email in the known manner.
    • A vaccination certificate is valid from day 22 until 3 months after the first vaccination date. A proof of vaccination of the second vaccination is valid until 9 months after the vaccination. (Except those vaccines where only one vaccination is foreseen.)
