Welcome to the Acoustics
Acoustic, up close and handmade - the Acoustics concert series starts its 12th year of existence in 7 German cities.
Acoustics Hamburg was born 12 years ago from the lightness of a spontaneous idea: "We'll show you your new favourite band. You just have to trust us." - 3 newcomer bands, 30 minutes each, purely acoustic. Outdoor. On a small stage of a well-known club.
The simple concept is convincing. A one-off show on the outdoor area in front of the legendary live music club Knust in Hamburg has developed into an established series all over Germany. In 2021, despite the pandemic, Acoustics took place in seven cities with a total of 126 concerts at 42 events.
Our cities for 2022:
Sunday: Leipzig - Moritzbastei
Monday: Dresden - Groovestation
Tuesday: Berlin - Zenner
Wednesday: Hamburg - Knust
Friday: Essen - Weststadthalle
Saturday: Magdeburg - Moritzhof
Sunday: Offenbach - Hafen 2
Musically, the Acoustics do not offer a one-size-fits-all programme, but a special variety between indie sounds, singer/songwriter, experimental fusion pop and special soundscapes. The more than 300 artists booked, including well-known acts such as Alice Merton, Antje Shomaker, SYML, Provinz, Alin Coen, Lina Maly, Jupiter Jones, Fil Bo Riva, Sarah Lesch, Enno Bunger or Lilly Among Clouds have taken the first step of their careers at the Acoustics.
This exciting mix is also reflected in the audience: young & old, niche & conventional, families & free spirits. The Acoustics are the place where several hundred music lovers celebrate an intimate evening of acoustic beauty together every week. Regardless of the line-up, the loyal audience comes to the concerts every week and trusts the booking of the organisers.
Acoustics Hamburg has developed from a spontaneous idea into a local and national concert brand - our partners speak of a real love brand. We see the Acoustics as a dynamic engine that can give new impulses. In order not to neglect the actual focus, the universally shared love of honest music, and to constantly redefine it, the Acoustics are looking for new ways to expand their platform in a targeted way.
The Acoustics are presented by DIFFUS, Schall Musikmagazin, UNTOLDENVY, The Pick, ASK HELMUT, Mopo Hamburg, Szene Hamburg, FluxFM, Ahoy Radio, SAX, Rauze. We thank Neustrat Kultur, Initiative Musik and the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media for their support.
