What’s on Kaiserslautern, Ramstein, Landstuhl

Lautr Summer

Relaxed concert atmosphere in the city center
“Lautr Summer Evenings” ensure a good mood times in 2024

The “Lautr Summer Evenings” are entering their third season! Over the summer months, to August 22, 2024, various artists will once again perform on a mobile event stage, alternating between different locations in Kaiserslautern’s city center. On Thursdays, all visitors to the city center will once again be treated to the finest listening pleasure from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., presented by Citymanagement Kaiserslautern.

On each of the evenings, a band will ensure a good mood and a relaxed atmosphere. In a pleasant ambience, guests of the local restaurants can listen to the music program with a cool drink after their shopping spree through the city and escape their everyday lives for a few hours. The popular deckchairs set up in front of the stages will once again provide the perfect summer feeling.

June 27, Riesenbrunnen
Yannisha Quartet
The established duo “Yannisha” consists of the incredible voice of Anisha and the French rhythm guitarist with a velvety voice, Yann Loup Adam. Whether with funk, pop or chansons, they have been delighting audiences for years on major cultural stages in the southwest and throughout Germany with various formations and in three languages. The mix of current music and classics covers every age group. The duo is accompanied by virtuoso Christian Di Fantauzzi (accordion) and exceptional musician Oliver Abt (guitar/bass).

July 11, Stiftsplatz
Sascha Kleinophorst
Sascha Kleinophorst has gained stage experience as a singer and frontman in a wide variety of formations and has been making music in a wide range of projects for almost 25 years. With his solo program, he lives out his preference for artists such as Ed Sheeran, Robbie Williams, Queen and many others with his voice and guitar. He plays whatever comes to mind: an acoustic version of current chart hits is followed by a Beatles classic, Udo Jürgens gives Ed Sheeran a run for his money. Despite this journey through the different genres, Sascha’s soulful interpretations make the concert evening feel like a unified whole.

July 25, St.-Martins-Platz
Stephan Flesch and Elmar Federkeil
With their impressive interplay, the two thoroughbred professional musicians offer the perfect symbiosis of harmony and rhythm, with songs from James Morrisson to Phil Collins, from Ed Sheeran to Bill Withers. On the one hand the fascinating voice of Stephan Flesch, accompanied by the sensitive guitar playing of the artist from Kaiserslautern, on the other hand the precise and earthy rhythms of the exceptional Saarland drummer and percussionist Elmar Federkeil.

August 08, Schillerplatz
The DJ Bus
Didi (DE) breathes life, soul and spirit into the electronic sound. His sets build a bridge between all electronic genres and delve deep into the world of electronic music. His passion and love for the diverse genre was born in Ibiza and today he produces tracks himself that convey a feeling of freedom with his unique sound. No wonder Didi (DE) also shines on stage internationally with his “The DJ Bus”. His sets are an experience for all the senses and allow the audience to forget everyday life for a few hours.

August 22, Stiftskirche
Heroes on the Loose
The former “guitar heroes” Eike Walter, Andreas Eichenauer and Luc Hatzis reinvented themselves last year as Heroes on the Loose with Kevin Holloway on guitar and vocals. At the Lautr Summer Evenings, the group can now be experienced unplugged as a trio. The evening’s program consists of sophisticated, high-quality classics from the last decades of music, including Eric Clapton, Coldplay, Bruce Springsteen, Mumford & Sons and Queen. Multi-voiced, virtuosic and full of energy and joy of playing, the trained thoroughbred musicians bring rock and pop unplugged to the stage.
