Hamburg Festival Hits Shoreditch!

It’s back! HAMBURG FESTIVAL returns for a second year – bringing Londoners a taste of Hamburg

Last year’s event brought a burst of music, tastes and culture from Hamburg to London and this year they look to build on the success, which saw a footfall of over 11,000. On Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 September, Hamburg on Tour (organised by the Hamburg Convention Bureau GmbH) will be back and bringing along with it a fabulous one-of-a- kind pop up event – HAMBURG FESTIVAL. Shoreditch will once again showcase this lively and vibrant city through food, art and live music.

Hamburg’s Metropolitan Region hosts over 100 lively festivals each year and with the opening of the iconic Elbphilharmonie Hamburg concert hall last year, the Hanseatic City is now more than ever a thriving music capital.

The free event has teamed up with a host of exciting Hamburg festivals including: ELBJAZZ, Wacken Open Air, MS DOCKVILLE, Hurricane Festival, and Reeperbahn Festival, all bringing a selection of their bands to the London stage for two days of great live music. The festivals range in music styles from Rock and Jazz to Metal and Alternative – bringing a taste of all musical genres for Londoners to enjoy.

Other event partners include Stefanie Hempel with her famous St. Pauli Beatles Tour – taking visitors on a sing-a-long Beatles journey and Hamburg’s LÜTTE HÖÖG, a Hanseatic craft beer combining the traditional German beer taste with the modernity of Hamburg, creating a liquid business card for the city.

HAMBURG FESTIVAL will bring a taste of Hamburg to Londoners through its live music, eye-catching art installations and interactive programme of activities in-house and on the streets of London. Foodies can enjoy an array of coffees from Speicherstadt Kaffeerösterei in a tasting, indulge in chocolate samples with Chocoversum, enjoy a beer tasting with Hamburg’s LÜTTE HÖÖG, and engage with live cooking demonstrations from the COOK UP Culinary Gallery for the chance to experience the true taste of Hamburg. The visitors can furthermore experience the spectacular Elbphilharmonie Hamburg via a large interactive module at the event.
