Hamburg: Music Metropolis
Hamburg is one of Germany's favourite cities for music. Whether you prefer a symphony in the Elbphilharmonie, a small live club on the Reeperbahn, or a show under the open sky in the harbur, Hamburg has a variety of live music experiences to offer locals and visitors alike.
Of course the Hamburg live-music experience is quite different at the moment. Concerts, festivals and musicals are all on hold due to the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis. So what are music lovers to do? Luckily no pandemic can silence Hamburg's music scene. Fast financial support from the city and a multitude of creative concepts from Hamburg's musicians have kept the musical heart of the Hanseatic city beating.
Hamburg's music scene is using the hashtag #LIVEFROMHAMBURG to send an optimistic message about both the current state of the music scene as well as its future. Musicians, organizers and venues are called upon to mark social media posts about music in Hamburg with the hashtag. In this way, #LIVEFROMHAMBURG is uniting a wide variety of genres and artists, showing the incredible diversity and great commitment of the city's musicians.
Live Act of the Week
A musical highlight is selected weekly from the entries marked with #LIVEFROMHAMBURG, and presented here as the Live Act of the Week. A digital stage is being created for all the initiatives that ensure that live music can continue to take place in Hamburg.
