Popakademie Stories

What's the Popakademie sound like? Where do our alumni actually work? And what exciting projects are realized at the Popakademie?

Popakademie Stories introduces artists of the Popakademie and our Bandpool programme and asks graduates what paths they have taken after their studies at the Popakademie. Stories about educational music projects or the Project Factory also find their place here.
