Welcome to the Acoustics

Acoustic, up close, handmade - The concert series Acoustics enters its eleventh year and runs in seven cities in summer 2021!

Music in acoustic performance, without gimmickry is more direct, more immediate. Acoustics makes the quiet tones a concept and builds an entire format out of it: For three months, three different artists or bands play weekly for 30 minutes each. At the best time of the evening before, songwriting in all its facets is celebrated acoustically in a relaxed open-air atmosphere.

The Acoustics program is curated far more openly than the name suggests. From classic indie, folk and songwriter acts to musicians from German rap and rock-pop to fusion-jazz combos, the mix is colorful. Versatility in an acoustic guise, promoting young talent as a central idea.

In the ten years of its existence, acts before their big breakthrough have repeatedly been part of the Acoustics Summer. Alice Merton, Province, KLAN and Lilly Among Clouds are partly nationally, partly even internationally successful artists. At their Acoustics shows, the audience could experience them in an intimate setting before they hit the big stages.

The Acoustics will take place in seven cities in the summer of 2021. Dresden, Magdeburg and Offenbach have been added. Hamburg, Berlin, Essen and Hanover will play on familiar terrain. We are looking forward to seeing you!
