Engin & Laura Lato start the live-season

Popakademie bands live on stage

15. June 2021

The low incidence values make it possible: In the summer of 2021, musicians from the Popakademie Baden-Württemberg will finally play live on stage again in Mannheim's two city parks.

The kick-off will be on Friday, June 18, 2021 at 8 pm, Laura Lato and ENGIN at the cultural festival JETZT ERST RECHT. The concert will take place on the lake stage in the Luisenpark Mannheim. JETZT ERST RECHT was launched in 2020 as a solidarity festival for art and culture during the Corona pandemic. In addition to a fixed fee, the participating artists receive the profit from ticket sales. Tickets for the live concert are available here.

The series continues in July with the start of the Sunday Beats concert series in the concert shell in Mannheim's Herzogenriedpark. Here, other bands as well as artists from the Popakademie will perform, starting with Henny Herz and her band on Sunday, July 04 from 3 pm.

On August 01, the synthpop band ok.danke.tschüss will play the Sunday Beats from 3 p.m., before the band EPI on Sunday, September 05, will form the preliminary conclusion of the series. Admission to the concerts is free in each case, the park entrance fee is € 3.50.

The four concerts were co-initiated by the Popakademie's own artist agency KLINKT, which has been helping solo musicians, bands and producers at the pop academy to stage live events or projects in the field of music marketing since 2007. The artist and exploitation agency is thus an interface between the musicians of the Popakademie and the economy and society in the Rhein-Neckar metropolitan region.
