Summer in the City Concerts

“Summer in the City” revolves completely around the series of open air concerts in Mainz Zollhafen, the former customs harbor, and other extraordinary event locations. With the north harbour mole directly by the Rhine, Mainz has an exceptional location, making every concert a quite special experience.

Performances by international top stars and local up-and-coming bands. It covers the entire spectrum from rock, pop, blues and jazz to classical and world music. The programme offers something for any age group, and the events take place all over the city, from the historic citadel, to the trendy customs port area and even the Cassian Carl culture barge on the Rhine.
