Schützenlisl is Oide Wiesn's folk singer tent.
Schützenlisl is Oide Wiesn's new folk singer tent, which replaced Schönheitskönigin in 2022. The tent's host is Lorenz Stiftl, who ran the small tent Zum Stiftl starting in 2008 and the Winderwald tent starting in 2002.
He has been trying to be promoted to the folk singer tent's host since 2016, which was even too long to keep his Schützenlisl trademark without using it. Quite ironically, he received his new Oktoberfest license just as the brand was gone.
Visually, not a lot was new with the change of name and host. Stiftl acquired the Schönheitskönigin tent from the construction firm that owned and leased it to the Schönheitskönigin's landlords.
In its first year, the new tent couldn't live up to the high expectations, as Schönheitkönigin was probably the loudest tent of the Oktoberfest 2019. Nowhere else could you hear as many people sing along.
The chief of music is Traudi Siferlinger, who has a folk music show on the public Bavarian TV channel.
Siferlinger structured the program into three segments. Each day, there will be three brass bands, one from 10:30 am / 11:00 am (Monday through Thursday) to 2 pm, the second one until 6 pm and the third one in the evening. Due to the large number of artists who join for the afternoon sessions, you better look them up in the official program.
Reservations became available in February for all days and time slots in the reservation form. Many people are confused by the fact that the name of the tent isn't displayed during the reservation process, but only the company name "Stiftl".
