10. July 2019

An exciting semester at the Popakademie Baden-Württemberg is drawing to a close. Before the musicians say goodbye to the summer break, the SUMMER BREAK SESSIONS will be offering a concentrated week of live music from Monday, July 15, 10:30 a.m.: Until Thursday evening, more than 40 artists will take their live exams in the performance rooms of the Popakademie - in public and free of charge.

"You can't get more live music in a week. The programme covers all genres of popular music and is proof of the attractiveness of the UNESCO City of Music Mannheim," says Professor Udo Dahmen, artistic director and managing director of the Popakademie Baden-Württemberg.

Live concerts in extraordinary surroundings
Two bands will perform their live exams on Tuesday evening at the Planetarium Mannheim. Visitors can look forward to impressive visualizations of the music of Vigo and Simona Miranda.

The highlight of the festival week is the traditional end-of-semester concert in the Alte Feuerwache Mannheim on Friday evening, 19 July 2019, where the Popakademie will present a musical best-of of the examination week in a festive setting.
