The 21st ANTARIS was a festival of extremes, and we would like to thank everyone who was there. It was an amazingly fantastic experience – BIG THANKS to everyone who helped us achieve it. The Sunday night storm enforced a few restrictions but we had three wonderful summer nights under the perfect starry sky complete with full moon. And the days were hot! Mother Nature showed us once again her powers – and reminded us to respect them!
We lived and we learned and we will now go forward to bring you yet another unforgettable festival next year. In future we will ensure that there are enough water supplies available around the festival grounds. Because one thing we learned from this years ANTARIS: WATER IS LIFE!
For the 22nd ANTARIS, water features should emerge and flow in to the artistic decoration. Anyone with ideas in this direction, who can realistically integrate art with the element water in a party atmosphere
can contact us at email@example.com with the subject "WATER IS LIFE"
117 years aviation history and since 2005 Antaris dance history at the oldest airfield in the world.
Otto Lilienthal Airfield in Stölln is not only a wonderful party space, it is also the oldest airfield in the world. Here is where the pioneer, Otto Lilienthal started the first started his first human gliding experiments. From the festival site near Gollenberg he made many daring flying experiences.
For the anniversary from “100 Jahre Menschenflug/100 years of human flights” on 23rd October 1989 the flight captain, Heinz-Dieter Kahlbach spectacularly landed an Iljuschin II-62 on the 900 meter grass runway. Later, Otto Lilienthals wife Agnes was given the title “Lady Agnes”.
So much history – so check out the airplane, it is now an interesting museum which also serves as Registry Office from time to time!
We are proud, in the spirit of this daring pioneer, to have the opportunity to come together and blast off for four days and three nights, in this village steeped in such amazing history.
