I very much regret having to communicate that due to an announcement of 40° Urbanart Festival the event LEGLOSHAUS had to be cancelled.

Transurban Düsseldorf – 40° Urban Art Festival celebrates half time of the event

Central European Summer is not a pleasure for the participants of 40° Urban Art Festival. Autumn is early this year.
