If we have learned one thing in the past few months, it is that everything will be different – quite often, anyway. What was still valid a moment ago can be invalid again. Now the “Strandkorb Open Air” has hit the port: the organizers are postponing the start of their series of shows to July because they are currently not allowed to let as many spectators as planned on the cruise terminal site. Actually, it would have started there on June 19 with VNV Nation.
“In the current ordinance to contain the spread of the corona virus in the Hanseatic City of Hamburg, new resolutions were passed at the beginning of the week that make it impossible for us to implement the hygiene concept as planned,” says organizer Michael Hilgers. “We decided to start the concerts in July. Fortunately, alternative dates could be found for all shows! “
The new resolutions made it impossible for us to implement the hygiene concept as planned.
Michael Hilgers, organizer
The concerts of VNV Nation, Pietro Lombardi, Götz Alsmann, Heinz Rudolf Kunze, Gentleman and Sasha are affected by the postponements. All concerts are to be rescheduled at the Steinwerder Cruise Center, the tickets remain valid.
The organizers now hope that by July it will be possible to receive more than the currently admitted 500 spectators on the site. Originally, they had expected up to 1,300 visitors – divided into 600 beach chairs.
“We ask the visitors to find out about the current hygiene regulations of the concept on the homepage or the social media before the event,” continues Hilgers. The reason is that the flexible pandemic situation could also change hygiene conditions – such as mandatory testing. “We thank all visitors for their understanding and cooperation.”
