Starting at 15:00 p.m., chimney sweepers parade through the Gamsstadt and spread a festive mood, while stilt walkers and artists amaze the guests. Let yourself be enchanted and get in the mood for the upcoming turn of the year together with us.

The Spielvolk unerringly hits the moment of fascination and captivates every visitor with its extraordinary program. When it gets dark, the stunning costumes of the street performers unfold their special charm and thus make your evening unforgettable.

Saxophone quartet Saxlamanda

The saxophone quartet Saxlamanda presents a New Year's program of a special kind: the four musicians, all classically trained, get their listeners in the mood for the coming year with a dynamic performance. The audience on the stage in Kitzbühel's Vorderstadt on January 1st, 2023 at 16:00 p.m. will experience atmospheric blue notes and revitalized classic hits. The four Tyroleans inspire with a fine balance between sound power and chamber music lightness.

Tyrol Music Project

The quartet Tyrol Music Project was founded in 2014 and has enjoyed great popularity ever since. With a love of experimentation, they combine folk songs from all countries with Tyrolean folk music and are not afraid to skillfully integrate film music from blockbusters or Netflix series. This is how their very own unmistakable sound is created. 

On 01 January 2023, they will be on stage at 5 pm in Kitzbühel's Hinterstadt and present their very special mix of different songs and genres. Let's sing and swing together to the sounds of the 20s - tangos from wicked Buenos Aires, romantic musette waltzes from Paris, schrammel music from Vienna and rhythmic folk dances from the Balkans, to finally return home to Tyrolean folk music.

New Year's Mass in the Parish Church

On Sunday, January 1st, 2023 at 17:00 p.m. the New Year’s service will take place in the parish church of St. Andreas Kitzbühel. The annual festive mass - to bless the new year - is musically framed by the church choir and orchestra.

Fire & Light Show by Anta Agni

The Slovenian performance artists Anta Agni inspire visitors in Kitzbühel with their breathtaking and unique LED and fire shows. Let yourself be enchanted by the rousing choreographies and amazing (light) effects on 01 January 2023 at 18:00 p.m. and at 19:00 p.m. in Kitzbühel's Vorderstadt.

At the LED show, top-class artistry and music meet hyponotic lights. The artists take you into a paradisiacal fantasy world with radiant illusions of movement and light. 

The fire show captivates with elaborate costumes and breathetaking choreography. From lyrical duets to sensual performances of fire dancers with hula hoops to group choreographies full of sparks and pyro effects, a true spectacle is offered here.

Tom Daubek & Friends

Let your ears be spoiled and enchanted by the music of Thomas Daubek on 01 January 2023 at 7.30 p.m. The artist sprays his passion honestly, soulfully and at the highest level across Europe. With his emotional soundtracks, moving love songs, the greatest evergreens and party hits, every moment becomes unique. 

From classical bar piano, to loungy chillout, to clubby party sound - the guests in Kitzbühel can experience all this and more with Thomas Daubek in his passionate performance. The artist makes every imaginable occasion unique with his musical highlights. One thing is always certain: it is honest, soulful and at the highest level.
