Keep Music on the Streets

DSC_0044-EditA reminder to all live music lovers that, in conjunction with the Folk Club Bonn, 3SongsBonn is currently collecting signatures for a petition to abolish the charge for playing live music on Bonn’s streets (currently 10 Euros per person for two days in Bonn.  In Cologne free!)
A few people have pointed out that the charge has been in place for a few years now. It seems though that it’s recently been more heavily enforced than ever before. Have you noticed how much emptier the streets are of music these days? We have.  Sad news for a City that makes a lot of tourist money through it’s famous musical son.

The petition will be closed on 6 June, when all signatures will be collected together from various paper lists including that from the Folk Club itself and the online one, for delivery to the Lord Mayor’s Office.
Please take a few minutes to sign, even if you don’t live in Bonn, to show you value live music and that it should be available to all – not just those who can afford concert tickets.
