Culture is system relevant!
The shock caused by the novel coronavirus is still deeply felt by everyone.
The much-acclaimed music and cultural scene of the Hanseatic city is particularly affected by this. For all musicians* and music creators such as event organisers, suppliers of event technology, arenas and small clubs, all income opportunities were lost from one day to the next through no fault of their own, thus acutely threatening their livelihood.
Reason enough, therefore, to launch a joint project by Karsten Jahnke Konzertdirektion for event organisers, PM Blue Veranstaltungstechnik for all technology suppliers and RockCity Hamburg e.V., Hamburg's community for musicians*.
Curtain up for Quaratunes!
Hamburg's music makers are doing what they are currently unable to do as usual - present their music live to their audience. But not in a club, but online in a stream - of course with a corresponding distance between all those present. And we are happy to offer them this stage: With decades of event know-how, light and sound technology as well as a backline provided by our partners Captured Live, we conjure a professional show directly into your living room with a minimum of personnel effort!
Quaratunes brings the live experience to all music fans who miss concerts to their home screens. And also offers all viewers* the opportunity to actively support Hamburg's culture: By clicking on the donation button, all the money goes straight to where it belongs - two-thirds to RockCity Hamburg e.V. und von dort aus direkt bei den Musiker*innen und Musikschaffenden der Hansestadt. Das verbleibende letzte Drittel verwendet PM Blue zur Unterstützung ihrer freien und festen Mitarbeiter.
The loud starting signal for the project was given on Friday, 27 March: Hamburg's Techno Pioneers Scooter proved that with unbeatable hits such as 'Hyper, Hyper', 'Fire' or 'How much is the Fish?' they also deliver an arena-ready show via streaming that will make every home wall shake!
We are working hard to present you many more musicians* from the Hanseatic city - as soon as the dates are fixed, we will publish them immediately!
