Germany’s picnic performance series draws 30k visitors|IQ Magazine
Picknick Konzerte took location in Berlin, Dresden, Perfume, Leipzig and Münster
Germany’s picnic performance series (Picknick Konzerte), which happened throughout the summertime throughout multiple cities, has actually attracted more than 30,000 visitors, according to MusikWoche.
The series, which was arranged by Landstreicher Booking in cooperation with Kingstar, Prime Home Entertainment and Drifter Cultural Productions, happened in Berlin, Dresden, Cologne, Leipzig and Münster in between July to September.
The 30-show series saw visitors sit on appointed, socially distanced blankets to see performances from artists consisting of Milky Possibility, LEA, Faber, Joris, Helge Schneider, MoTrip, Giant Rooks, Provinz, Meute, Kasalla, Mine, Die Höchst Eisenbahn, Dota, Antje Schomaker and Mia Morgan.
Regardless of lots of sell-out reveals in the series, the organisers worried that the performances are not economically feasible and that picnic concerts are not a replacement for performances with regular conditions.
” However, the shows in this series offered an unforgettable, unwinded and lovely live experience for the very first time in months, whether in front of, on or behind the phase,” Landstreicher informed MusikWoche.
” The programs in this series offered a memorable, unwinded and stunning live experience for the first time in months”
Martin Vejmelka, handling director at Drifter cultural productions (Dresden and Leipzig) said: “We are happy that our groups in Leipzig, Dresden and Berlin, in cooperation with the coworkers from Kingstar in Münster and Prime Home Entertainment in Perfume, were able to develop attractive places in a really short time, have developed sanitary principles that can be approved and have actually created impressive productions.”
” Together with our trip partners, we had the ability to put a varied program on the stage and, contrary to expectations, allow many individuals to have a couple of touching live music experiences in summertime 2020.
” We are particularly happy that with the picnic shows we were able to supply our long-term production partners with a tiny ray of hope in a time complete of rejections.”
Picknick Konzerte is one of the only major show series in the country that has actually gone on along with Back to Live, which launched previously this month and will run until 2 October.
Last month, the German federal government announced that all significant events that do not stick to social distancing procedures and health procedure will now be prohibited up until a minimum of the end of the year.
