Deichkind added to Hofgarten Concerts in August

Deichkind – Kunst!Rasen 2013

Another evening to look forward to in Bonn this year – Deichkind will play on Saturday 27.08.22 on the Hofgartenwiese. It should be a colourful and visual delight, as you can see from the pictures showing their last appearance here in 2013 at Kunst!Rasen.

Deichkind – Kunst!Rasen 2013

Initially a German Rap band, Deichkind went on to become “a conceptual artistic project in the guise of a pop band,” said Henning Besser, the band’s creative director, in a ZEIT Online podcast. The Hamburg-based creative collective remains exciting even after 25 years of band history.
Deichkind concerts combine punk ballet, political performance and proll disco.
They are also commonly referred to as Deichkind Festivals. No question – Deichkind are at the forefront where eccentricity meets music in Germany.

Tickets go on sale from Monday (16 May) at 12 o’clock via eventim.

Cynthia Nickschas Competition

Undoubtedly one of the best musicians to come out of Bonn in recent years, Cynthia Nickschas is not just a singer, she is a real force of nature. Anyone who has caught a show by this young lady from Tuttlingen will tell you they saw a musician playing from the soul, a singer for whom every song and every word within that song matters. Cynthia’s show at the Pantheon in Bonn on 17 May will be a particularly poignant one as it will be the last appearance in her band of Stefan ‘Doc’ Janzik.

3songsbonn is offering two lucky entrants the chance to see the concert for free. Just send an email to giving ‘Cynthia Nickschas Competition’ in the Betreff/Subject box.
