International Summer Camp - English

LogoThe Popakademie’s International Summer Camp 2019 will take place from July 20th to July 25th.


Everybody who is up for meeting musicians from all over the world, rehearsing, exchanging ideas, rock the studio or the stage and enjoy an extra hot summer - this is the place for you to be! From July 22nd to July 28th 2018 the Popakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg hosts up to 80 guests, from all over Europe and beyond, for a very special experience. Students of the Popakademie, as well as students from our partner institutions in Belgium, Ireland, the Netherlands, United Kingdom, the USA, China, and Sweden, take part to experience this unique chance to be coached by a highly qualified team of international experts.

In addition to the intensive daily rehearsals, the participants can choose between vocal or instrumental lessons, which they attend either alone or as part of a group.

In between and after the units, attendees are invited to go downtown, to take trips to the local surrounding, to jam at night or just relax. The Summer Camp focuses on overall band coaching, artistic teamwork and the implementation of real-life creativity.
As an international event, the Summer Camp offers excellent ways of networking for young musicians in the European context. The teachers, all professional experts of the music business, will do their best to support the idea of the International Summer Camp. The results of the International Summer Camp will be presented on the Popakademie stage in the course of a public concert.
