Sunday Beats with ok.danke.tschüss
Sunday Beats, the joint concert series of the Popakademie Baden-Württemberg and Stadtpark Mannheim, continues!

On August 1, 2021, starting at 3 p.m., ok.danke.tschüss will be on stage at the concert shell in Mannheim's Herzogenriedpark.

ok.danke.tschüss are not afraid of Klamauk. The genre of ok.danke.tschüss has been given many names "unicorn rock," "synth pop" and "what-the-hell-is-that supposed to be?" Nothing has shocked them. With wacky synth sounds, shrill outfits and weird dance moves, they usher in the "New New New New German Wave." Perhaps they are the höflichest rebellion in the world.
More info on ok.danke.tschüss:

Admission to the concert is free,
the park entrance fee is 3,50 €.
Please observe the hygiene rules in force in the park!
