If you can’t get to the music, let the music come to you. This seems to be the motto of a new initiative for musicians in Bonn. bonnlive.com will be streaming live from several locations in Bonn over the coming weeks, the first stream being a #STAYATHOME session on 13 April (6.00 pm) introducing musicians set to feature in this year’s Over The Border Festival The Festival itself has been moved to End of August/September. Bonnlive.com will also see Bonn’s own Makeda make local history by being the first female singer to stream from the roof of the DHL Post Tower (7.30 pm on 14 April)
The bonnlive.com initiative was born out of the closure of live events that started due to Covid-19 in mid-March. There are various planned livestreams involving cabaret and comedy as well as music, and donations will be split between the various Cultural Agents who are currently unable to put on shows and consequently are threatened for their very existence. BonnLive itself is a joint project between the two young Bonn event agencies RheinEvents and five-three event agency (founders of the Panama Open Air and Green Juice Festival). Sandro Heinemann of RheinEvents explains: “In the times of the Corona crisis we did not want to sit around idly, but to help support the Bonn cultural scene with its locations and events.” – “When Bonners are at home, we bring culture to them At home – a win-win situation, ”adds Julian Reininger from the five-three event agency.
The initiative is supported by various partners from Bonn and the region, such as WetterOnline, Bechtle, Deutsche Post DHL Group, Sparkasse KölnBonn, Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Sieg, Radio Bonn / Rhein-Sieg and Kreativrudel.
