The delegations and partners around Strasbourg Music Week project,
16 LIVE / SHOWCASES
The local and sustainable economy is not just for salads!
Thinking about music on a reasonable scale, giving space to newcomers, organising concerts with a smaller carbon footprint, that too we can do it! Strasbourg Music Week's live shows have been designed with proximity in mind, within a 300 km radius of Strasbourg.
The program includes a bunch of emerging bands from Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Luxembourg and of course France. This first edition was designed in collaboration with Pelpass and ends in beauty with its first Soundwalk, a concept imported from Switzerland, an intimate sound walk to feast your eyes and ears as you stroll through our beautiful city.
A sound and pedestrian city stroll through 3 unusual places (1 artist per place, 3 songs per artist), imagined by our swiss colleagues.
An original format allowing a discovery of the city, the approach in situ of the professionals, an attentive and intimate listening of the artists selected for the occasion.
