In about 150 cities around the globe volunteers are curating secret, intimate gigs in unique spaces all around the world (usually living rooms). There are at least two shows every day somewhere in somebodies flat. In Germany you’ll find Sofar Sounds shows in Berlin, Hamburg, Munich and Essen. Guests don’t have to pay for entrance. And they don’t know which artists will perform until the show starts. So they have the chance to discover new music and to interact with the artists. Sofar Sounds has been growing very fast and is still growing.
Björn Köcher, Leader Sofar Sounds Hamburg, will tell you more about Sofar and the idea behind it. After that you'll have the opportunity to discuss, what were and are the difficulties and which role does social media play.
