Setup between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Sound check between 7pm and 8pm.

Live music ends at midnight (official regulation), then bar, DJs or mechanical music.

One backline for several bands!

One of the bands takes the drums with them and makes them available to the others. The same goes for bass and guitar cabinets.

Set up 6 p.m.!

Official start at 8 p.m. usually this means 9pm. It also depends on the length of the set and the number of bands. The shorter the live set, the later we start.

There is no fee. Apart from borrowing the bass combos and/or the drums, you will not incur any costs.

Bands typically collect free donations (hat fee) and can sell merch. (The more people, the more you can get, so make an effort to mobilize visitors in the weeks before.)

For reasons of space, no equipment can be stored in the bar overnight. Any backline that you have brought with you must be transported away again on the day of the event.


We send out press releases, put you in our program calendar and spread date information on social networks and program pages. Nevertheless, active promotion of the event by you is essential for a successful evening. You are best in reaching your fan base. Use all channels available to you.

SMS, Facebook events, email, websites, press, posters, flyers, etc.

Send us the link to your Facebook event to include with us, or make us a co-host.

Posters and flyers can be handed in at the bar. In the last 2 weeks before the gig we take care of spreading it.
