Welcome to the Acoustics

Acoustic, up close and handmade - the Acoustics concert series starts its 14th year of existence.

Acoustics Hamburg was born 13 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 throughout Germany.

Our cities for 2023:
Tuesday: Berlin - Festsaal Kreuzberg
Wednesday: Hamburg - Knust
Thursday: Essen - Weststadthalle

Musically, the Acoustics do not offer a one-size-fits-all approach, but a special variety between indie sounds, singer/songwriter, experimental fusion pop and special soundscapes. The more than 300 booked artists*, including well-known acts such as Alice Merton, Mayberg, 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. The loyal audience comes to the concerts every week, regardless of the line-up, 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, UNTOLDENCY, Radio Eins, Mopo Hamburg, Szene Hamburg, Ahoy Radio. We thank our sponsors Hörkontor and Hanseton. As well as Neustrat Kultur, Initiative Musik and the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media for their support. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

When you break out the acoustic guitar, the words are the focal point unless you're the Jimi Hendrix of the acoustic guitar. So the words have to have meaning.
