International Summer Camp X Mannheim Music Days
We're back! After a corona-related break, we are organizing our summer camp in a new guise in cooperation with the Mannheim Cultural Office: International Summer Camp X Mannheim Music Days. The focus is on Mannheim's music scene as well as national and international musicians.

Band rehearsals, creative songwriting and music production are at the heart of the summer course. There are also themed master classes, workshops and specials. Individual and group lessons in singing, songwriting, music production and various instruments complete the program. At the end of the week, all participants present their results at a public final concert at the Popakademie. The Mannheim Music Days are a new addition to the International Summer Camp and focus on the Mannheim music and culture scene.

This year, the International Summer Camp will take place from July 21-26, 2024. You can apply here until July 09, 2024! The participation fee is 250 EUR for Mannheim musicians, 350 EUR for music students and 400 EUR for interested musicians (without accommodation). Applications are open to (semi-)professional songwriters, producers, guitarists, bassists, keyboardists and drummers.

The summer camp offers around 60 musicians a locally and internationally networked band workshop under the guidance of a top-class team of lecturers. In addition to Mannheim musicians and Popakademie students, students from international partner universities such as Sweden, the USA, Ireland, England, Norway and the Netherlands are also invited to take part. Thanks to the close connection between the Popakademie and its partner institutions and the Mannheim music scene, the camp offers participants unique networking opportunities in Mannheim and beyond.

Please note: The public final concert will take place on 26.07. at the Popakademie.

The International Summer Camp takes place in cooperation with the Mannheim Cultural Office and with the kind support of the Wilhelm Müller Foundation.

Sunday Beats - EYPA
EYPA © Linda Stark
Sunday Beats, the joint concert series of the Popakademie Baden-Württemberg and Stadtpark Mannheim, is already entering its sixth round in 2024!
On August 18th 2024 you can look forward to EYPA!

The Mannheim electro duo EYPA - consisting of Paul-Aaron Wolf (synthesizer and percussion) and Eyad Ghannam (e-oud) - combines Western sound art with pulsating beats to create an electro-acoustic sound of warm oriental colours.
Synthesizer and oud (a short-necked lute from the Middle East) create an oriental soundscape, drum machines and various frame drums provide the vibe and groove, both in the club and at open-air events. Composition and improvisation merge into a trance and turn every live set into a unique show.

Admission to the concert is free, admission to the park is €4, students pay €3, children/young people up to the age of 15 pay €2.50.
