Munich Not only the best athletes, but also music stars come to the August sports event in Munich. Several top performers will perform at the opening ceremony, and there will also be concerts by famous bands for eleven days.
The European Championship in Munich from 11 to 21 August is not only a high-class sport. Through the “Roofs” festival, the organizers want to combine sport with culture. Like “Munich recently experienced this at the 1972 Olympics,” emphasize the organizers.
And so, on August 10, the opening of the European Championships in nine sports disciplines will be accompanied by teams, artists and light installations that will cover the entire Olympic Park. But the headliner of the opening ceremony at the Olympic Stadium is rapper Marteria. The festival starts at 6.30 pm Admission is free.
“The Olympic Park will become a place of community and community” – that was the idea of the organizers. It should be a place for athletes, artists and visitors.
According to the organizers, the ceremony on Wednesday, August 10, should not be a classic opening ceremony. Therefore, the concept with three phases was considered. The first phase has the motto: “Dream rest”.
Walking acts, light installations and music groups will take visitors on an hour-long journey into the world of dreams.
The “awakening” begins at 7:30 pm. Then the marching bands move to the Olympic Park from all directions. There will be different scenes for small teams, and big Dundu dolls and stilt walkers will turn the park into a fairy-tale forest. Then Marteria enters the stage. The rapper from Rostock is one of the most successful solo artists in Germany. Meanwhile, Munich’s Moop Mama brass band provides local flair at the festivities.
The day before the opening, the organizers also presented Sportfreunde Stiller as another performance. The Bavarian rock band will present their new single “Spectacular” on Wednesday evening. The music video for the single was shot on the roof of the Olympic Stadium.
At the end of the opening, there is a “shining life”. The trees should then shine, bands will stretch across the park, and the illuminations will bring the right mood.
The “Roofs” festival takes place over eleven days, mainly in the Olympic Park, Königsplatz and the regatta venues. There are different roofs everywhere – including children’s, creative and home roof. Each place should present itself as “an experience world with its own charm and character”. They will include exhibitions, workshops and sports courses. The entire Roofs program, which consists of 168 offers, is free of charge.
There are 75 program positions in the music section alone. Within eleven days there should be something for almost every musical taste. There is electronic dance music, Bavarian sounds, jazz and pop music. On August 11 at 20:00 the Munich Symphony Orchestra and Oimara will play on the Central Roof in Olympiapark.
The highlight of the non-sport program of the European Championships is the concert of the Austrian band Wanda, which will perform in the Olympic Park on Sunday, August 14 from Berlin-based punk band Beatsteaks will appear on the Central Roof stage on Tuesday, August 16, from
On Saturday, August 20 at 8:45 pm, another musical attraction will take place on the Central Roof, featuring a performance by Alphaville. Ry X will provide musical entertainment at the Olympic Park on Wednesday, August 17, from
