Christmas Events in and around Cologne 2018 – The Top 8

Most people love her. The Christmas season in Cologne has begun and not only the Christmas markets in Cologne have begun, but there are also many other Christmas events in and around Cologne. Your diary is not fully booked yet and you are still looking for suitable events during the Christmas season? We’ve put together the coolest events for you so you don’t miss a thing.

+ AD + Do you know?

Christmas Events – Top 8 Events in Cologne 2018

At Christmas there are always a lot of great events, which are not always quite cheap. Here are the top 8 events for which it is really worth it to sacrifice money and time.

Theatre at the Dom – Christmas on the balcony

How often do you go to the theater? Most of them don’t find enough time or the right company in their everyday life to go to the theatre. The comedy “Christmas on the Balcony”, which is performed in the Theater am Dom, is very worthwhile. Here you also feel when you come alone, not out of place. The arrangement of the rows of seats gives a feeling of community and shared joy. It is laughed together, because six actors play 12 roles at the same time and only on 2 balconies. Theatre lovers should not miss this play at all and even newcomers to the world of theatre can let themselves be inspired by it.

Cologne’s biggest Christmas party

On December 7, Cologne’s biggest Christmas party will take place in the LANXESS Arena. Here you will find a Christmas show with Cologne stars and a huge Christmas market with various delicacies. You have to spend a little more money for this event. The cheapest ticket for this event is 89,00€. This price then includes 4 beverage vouchers, 3 meal vouchers, 1 confectionery voucher and of course admission to the show. So you’ll get full in any case and you’ll get a great show on top of that. If you don’t want to miss this event, you can get it here: Tickets.

Christmas markets in Cologne

It is worth visiting a Christmas market every year. The scents and the atmosphere on a Christmas market let you get really into the Christmas mood. In a city like Cologne, there are many different Christmas markets every year. In Cologne there is something for every taste. In our article Top 10 Christmas Markets in Cologne, we have selected the best for you.

Ice Rink Heumarkt

The ice rink at Heumarkt is a spectacle every year. Under 10,00€ you can go round with friends or family and enjoy the Christmas season. If you like, you can combine ice skating with a leisurely stroll through the Christmas market Heinzel’s winter fairy tale. After you have turned your rounds on the ice, you can usually eat a hot crêpe or a small mushroom pan very well. If you want to change your eating habits at the Christmas market, read the article: Christmas – Food – Trends.

Christmas Market Round Trip to different Christmas Markets

If you want to visit several Christmas markets on one day, you can take a train from one Christmas market to the next in Cologne. Especially for tourists who don’t have much time to discover everything in Cologne, it is very convenient that they can visit the most important Christmas markets in Cologne in a relatively short time. The Bimmelbahn takes the passengers to the Christmas markets: Market of the angels at Neumarkt, market of the Heinzel at the old market, to the harbour – Christmas market at the chocolate museum and to the Christmas market at the cathedral.

Phantasialand as Winter Dream

From 23 November 2018 to 20 January 2019 you have the chance to admire Phantasialand as a winter dream and feel comfortable there. There are breathtaking fireworks every day, Christmas treats, Christmas shows, rides, a water train and a fantastic backdrop. The cheapest tickets are available from 29,50€. A day will definitely be unforgettable!

Christmas Tree Beat

There are several places near Cologne where you can make a real event out of buying a fir tree for your home with your family. Especially for the children it is usually an unforgettable day. The advantages: The children are “exhausted” and one can see how his tree will look in the living room and does not buy the “cat in the bag”. If you have a car at your disposal, you can drive to the Hückeswagen, 40 km away, and choose a Christmas tree, saw it off and drink mulled wine on the second and third Advent weekends, or between 18.12. and 23.12. from 9:30 am.

Cologne Christmas Circuss

A Christmas circus will take place from 06 December to 31 December in Cologne-Mülheim. Let yourself be enchanted by unbelievable tricks and a dreamlike Christmas fairy tale. Ticktes are available in the cheapest category from 21,00€. If this is still too expensive for you, if you go there with one person, you can use one of the partner days to buy a ticket for two persons. Also as a family there is the chance to get away cheaper. For 150€ you get already four tickets in the cheapest category here.

FIV wishes you an unforgettable Christmas season!

The Reggae Festival of Germany – Summerjam

To make life positive, diverse and tolerant – that is the motto of the Summerjam. As one of the largest reggae festivals in Europe, it attracts huge crowds every year and always offers a unique experience. Once a year different people come together in Cologne to celebrate the festival at the Fühlinger See for more than 3 days and to celebrate love and tolerance.

[shortcode variable slug=”adsense”]

From Bob Marley to Seeed

The first Summerjam in 1985 was an unexpected success. The organizers were unsure if this would work out.  Originally it was only a day concert and because Reggae was not really known in Germany, the success could not be foreseen. But then it happened – 8000 people came to the Summerjam and it was clear there was a future for it. Meanwhile the Summerjam is the oldest festival in Germany and the oldest reggae festival in Europe. Inspired by reggae legend Bob Marley, the music trend from the 80s was brought to Germany by reggae legend Bob Marley and is still a phenomenon where Seeed and Gentlemen, when they were even more unknown, performed back then – today they are stars.

Highlights of the Summerjam Festival

Over the last few years countless acts have gathered on the Summerjam. From Seeed to Gentleman to Alligatoah, Sean Paul and Capleton, the Reggae Event of the Year also offers musical diversity. The motto changes every year – the spirit remains the same: Together for tolerance, diversity and a positive attitude to life. Every year a different summer adventure awaits you directly at the Fühlinger See – hot weather, cold drinks, loud music and cooling down right in front of you. What more could you want from a festival? It’s probably one of the few places even we at FIV can’t help you.

Summerjam – Tickets and Prices

With such a coveted festival, it is definitely worth taking early care of festival tickets. As with many of the big festivals, they are often sold out very quickly. At the moment there are the popular “Early Bird” tickets, which are offered at a reduced price. The 3-day hard- or e-ticket costs you 110,-€, on which another 8,-€ VVK fee is added. How long offer is available is uncertain. So if you know you definitely want to go to the Summerjam, even though the line-up is not out yet, you should make sure you do, because the offer is limited.

Supercandy: The Influencer Paradise

Pink. Cute. Unique. That’s what Supercandy describes pretty accurately. The trend from the USA has finally reached Germany. We can assure you that waiting was worth it. FIV was for you in Cologne – Ehrenfeld, where the Pop-up-Museum conquers the hearts of all influencers and bloggers until 30.December.2018. We were there with the singer Luna Farina and ourselves, or in Lunas fall many pictures, taken from the colorful world of Supercandy.

[shortcode variable slug=”adsense”]

Where does the Instagram Museum come from?

In America the model is known by the term “Museum of Ice Cream” and attracts superstars like Katy Perry, Kim Kardashian, Gwyneth Paltrow, Drew Barrymore, Blue Ivy and Beyoncé with husband Jay-Z. The trend began in July 2016 in New York, where the first tickets were sold out 18 minutes after the start of advance sales. Also in Germany Supercandy attracts the crowds just like that. From small children with their families to influencers like Luna Farina or even over 70-year-old couples, everything is represented. 97% of the visitors are women and girls, which shows that men are very little represented there. However, this does not mean that they are less welcome there, everyone who wants to make an extraordinary selfie or simply experience the Bunte Candywelt is invited to visit them.

Museum and Instagram?

Supercandy is of course not a normal museum, but a so-called “Pop-Up Museum”. You can imagine this as an exhibition that is in one city for a few months and then moves on to the next. Fortunately for us from Cologne it is until December 30th – Cologne Ehrenfeld. Supercandy offers you an extraordinary Instagram scenery after the other, from a huge ball pool to a confetti shower, each room is a unique experience. In total, there are more than 10 different “Instagram Museums” in America and Frank Karch, the operator of the extraordinary attraction, was the first to bring it to Germany.

Blogger and Influencer only waited for Supercandy

Frank Karch has observed the trend in America over the last 2 years and has always wondered why it doesn’t exist in Germany. With the popularity of Instagram and other social media platforms, it should be booming. That’s exactly how it is, at the beginning people were a bit cautious, but that soon subsided. The masses are pouring in from all parts of Germany to take the experience with them. Rightly so, because whether the Super Event Supercandy will remain in Germany after its time in Cologne has expired is uncertain. You need a suitable location, sponsors and much more. In the interview Frank told us that there is a possibility that Supercandy might be the next to go abroad. So to every blogger, influencer, Youtuber, boy, girl, man and woman – hurry up! We don’t know if and when we can experience the event again here in Germany, so go online, get a ticket and go to Supercandy.

The perfect outfit for your shooting

Now you think for sure that you have to hurry totally dadrin and with such a strong rush not have the possibility to take pictures in peace. Don’t worry, admission is always in 30-minute intervals and you can spend up to 2 hours with your ticket in the world of Supercandy. So you have plenty of time to make some great pictures for Instagram and to stand out as an influencer. You also have the opportunity to change in the museum, as wardrobes are provided especially for you, so that you can always wear your suitable outfit for the incredible attractions Supercandy provides for you. a tip from FIV – Supercandy is colourful and crazy, so keep that in mind when choosing your outfit!

Supercandy makes children happy and Luna also

Thanks to the organizer Frank Karch and his cooperation with Haribo Supercandy is finally here. Haribo sponsors a lot of sweets, which the visitors can also eat. Bloggers, influencers and more flock to Cologne to be the first Germans to experience the innovative museum concept. The entrance fee is 29€, for children and teenagers up to 14 years only 21€. We recommend you experience Supercandy with your friends, if you buy 4 tickets you only have to pay 3. There is also a whole room around the Haribo theme. Chains with gold bears hang from the ceiling, columns filled with various Haribo treats and huge glittering gold bears. For every candy fan this is an absolute must! In addition, the sweets are distributed throughout the museum, a round tour begins directly at the entrance with a cup filled with various Haribo sweets and in every second room there are even more available for free cash on delivery. Delicious, we can’t say no to FIV either.

What does Luna Farina say to Supercandy?

Luna is totally thrilled. After 2 hours of intensive photo shooting, some fooling around and a lot of nibbling, she can only tell everyone – Supercandy is incredible, unique and definitely worth a visit. She liked the Black White Wall the most, the light and the whole location was for her taste the best place to take pictures, together with the huge ball pool, if it wasn’t for the time Luna would probably still be swimming in the ball pool now, but unfortunately the day of an influencer also comes to an end. You can only grab one of the Goodiebags, a delicious free ice cream and Supercandy good nosh.

Parookaville Madness: Price, Line-Up and more

Welcome to Parookaville, the village that never sleeps. Meanwhile it is regarded as the biggest EDM festival in Germany. Every year since 2015, visitors from all corners of the world have come together to celebrate the Party of the Year at the former Royal Air Force military airport in Weeze.

Foundation of Parookaville

The biggest EDM festival in Germany hasn’t been around that long. It was founded in 2015 by Bernd Dicks and attracted 25,000 people to the village every day. You’re probably wondering, “Huh, why village?” There is a very simple answer to that – the Parookaville is a big village, which is being built especially for the festival time and now has over 80,000 visitors. If you go to the parookaville, you’re not visitors, you’re citizens. As a citizen of the village you get a visa and a passport for your festival stay, which replaces the old-fashioned festival tickets.

Other Specials of the biggest EDM Festival in Germany

Of course, a village needs more than its citizens and a few stages. To complete the feeling, there is a post office, an outdoor pool with seahorse option, a prison with tattoo artists, a police station, a beauty farm, a city forest, a fair with roller coaster and of course a church. However, this is not a normal church, but a church that is free from customs and religion. In the past years hundreds of festival marriages have been celebrated there and some real marriage proposals have been made.

The highlights of the Parookaville

On the approximately 150,000 square meters of the festival’s grounds, some of the greats of the scene have already gathered. Among them the French EDM giant David Guetta, Steve Aoki, Axwell Ingrosso or the German Djs Robin Schulz and Felix Jaehn. Their performances are underlined with powerful light and sound effects – an elaborate backdrop takes the celebrants to other worlds.

Prices and camping possibilities

What is a festival without camping? That’s why we’ve put together some information for you here, so that you have everything you need for your planning at a glance:

A visa for the whole weekend costs you 209€ – that’s the entrance fee. The Mellowfields is still available for 2019 from the different campingsides. The Mellowfields costs you 295€ plus 10,-€ garbage deposit.

Deluxe Camping

Of course you can also save yourself a lot of work by simply renting a ready-made tent with accessories for your stay there. Since the places for 2019 have already gone well, you would have to stick to it, as there are only a few 2 person tents left. The price for the Bioko Deluxe package is 1.468€, which is 734,-€ per person.

The line-up

The line-up for 2019 is still a big secret, but it will definitely be overwhelming once again. With scene giants like Zedd and David Guetta it’s hard to imagine how this can be topped. However, like you, we are confident that Parookaville will not disappoint its fans in 2019 either. The tickets are already sold out shortly before the line-up is announced – so get on with it. Parookaville is waiting for you.

Rock Festivals: Hurricane and Rock am Ring

Music offers us a huge spectrum of emotions and unforgettable moments, from the most heartbreaking ballads to the hardest rock songs, everyone has one or more genres to which they have a strong bond. Rock am Ring and Hurricane are two especially big festivals that catch this diversity incredibly well. In the past years rock giants like Asking Alexandria but also newcomers Pvris from Amerkia were there with quieter songs. FIV was there for you and gives you a recap about the rock events of the year.

+ AD + Do you know?

The Twin Festival – Rock im Park and Rock am Ring

Rock am Ring were supposed to celebrate their debut in 1980, but nothing came of it. Tickets were sold, flyers printed and bands booked. The event failed because there was no parking for the visitors and the residents demonstrated to make their parking spaces available for strangers. But the organizers did not give up, so that the festival was finally realized in 1985. Rock am Ring was supposed to be a unique event, but nobody could have guessed that 75.000 visitors from all over the world came, so the unique Rock am Ring became an annual event.

Rock Im Park appears in the scene

The success of Rock am Ring became no less over the years, on the contrary. The festival became better known and internationally the biggest acts of the scene came to Germany to shake the earth once a year. The growing demand was the basis for the debut of the twin festival “Rock im Park”. In the middle of Nuremberg, the new festival enjoyed the same popularity as Rock am Ring. The two festivals still share the line-up and attract up to 80,000 people every year.

The line-up of the twin festivals promises musical diversity in 2019 as well

Highlights of RaR and RiP

The two festivals had some exciting acts over the last years. Among the highlights were definitely top acts like the dead pants, Linkin Park, Rammstein or Marylin Manson. These are acts that have made a special name for themselves in the industry over the years and that such artists perform at a festival here in Germany, says a lot. Not for nothing are these festivals one of the biggest rock festivals on earth. But not only rock giants have inspired the crowd. Last year, acts like Alma or Gorillaz were on the outskirts as well and provided variety. Every year RaR and RiP surprise with new exciting artists.

Costs and overnight accommodation

With such diversity comes corresponding costs. When the festival first came out you had to pay 50€ per ticket, but you only had a line-up of 13 bands. Meanwhile it is partly over 90, therefore the price has also risen to currently 169€. Then you have the entry for 3 days festival pure – but then there is also the camping ticket, which is 50€ again. So you have a total amount of 219€. In December the price for the weekend tickets rises to the 3 price level which was about 239€ last year. If you want to have an all-round experience without worrying about things, you can also buy the VIP full package for a proud price of 999€.

The package includes:

  • Access to the entire festival area and to the Nürburgring Lounge in the pit building in front of the Volcano Stage Area.
  • Exclusive VIP entrance. Best view of the Volcano Stage from the entrance area of the VIP Lounges.
  • access to zone A in front of the first breakwater of the Volcano Stage (if capacity is available in zone A).
  • Catering in the Nürburgring°Lounge incl. drinks and service.
  • Flatscreen wall in the lounge including festival TV picture of all stages. The VIP Weekend Festival Ticket is valid on Friday, 07.06.2019 from admission until Sunday, 09.06.2019 until the end of the festival program.
  • Parking space reservations possible (one parking ticket is included with the purchase of two VIP Weekend Festival tickets).

VIP Camping instead of Green Camping

The traditional green camping is the cheapest option, for 50€ you get access to the campsite, pitch your tent and build a small camp with your friends. If you want to have a more relaxing experience, with as little effort as possible there is also a VIP option, the Experience Camping Ticket for 349€.

The ticket includes:

  • The Experience Camping Ticket entitles the holder to camping and parking in the Experience Camping category.
  • The camping and parking area is open from Wednesday, 05.06.2019 at 18.00 until Monday, 10.06.2019 at 12.00.
  • The Experience area is an exclusive camp right next to the Volcano Stage with comfortable and pre-constructed accommodation
  • High-quality sanitary facilities and paved paths.

A hurricane to music

The Hurricane Festival has existed since 1997 and since then has taken place annually at the Eichenring Motorcycle Sandrennbahn near Scheeßel in Lower Saxony. The rush of visitors is almost as big as at Rock am Ring and Rock im Park. With around 70,000 visits last year, it is also one of the largest festivals in the country. Like Rock im Park, they play a colourful mix of rock, pop, metal and some rap. Acts like Prinz Pi, Marteria, Die toten Hosen, Foo Fighters and more inspire the crowd and provide a lot of variety.

It rocks in the heath – that’s how the Hurricane Festival

On the 8th and 9th of September 1973 the very first Rock Festival took place in Scheeßel under the title “Es rockt in der Heide”. The festival attracted many rock greats like Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chicago, Manfred Mann’s Earth Band and Lou Reed. After another festival took place in Scheeßel in 1977, where the organizer noticed that he could not pay the bands and a total material damage of 1.5 million marks occurred, it became quiet again in Scheeßel. But only until 1997, when the new mayor took care to introduce the Hurricane Festival. Since then the Hurricane has been a musical tradition of the town, which with the help of a local entrepreneur Folkert Koppmans managed to convince the Scheeßel town council. The first festival with headliners such as Rammstein, INXS and Bad Religion attracted around 20,000 visitors.

Protection against rain and sun at the festival

Most festivals take place outside, especially in summer. So it is clear that such a beautiful meadow quickly becomes a mud battle and your clothes get soaked. And to make sure that doesn’t happen, we recommend a raincoat and rubber boots. You can get cheap raincoats in almost every drugstore or even online. For a few euros you can get a bunch of disposable coats. It looks similar with rubber boots, these are available in all possible designs. Of course, if you don’t mind getting completely soaked and silted up, we don’t want to persuade you to do anything. There are enough people who celebrate the wet festival and take it as it is, that’s worth an experience too.

Accessories as protection

Like I said, you’re out most of the time. Thus also in the blazing sun, which can end quite badly and painfully if one does not pay attention. Don’t forget the good old sunscreen, so this doesn’t happen. It’s even better if you don’t forget to use them regularly, but FIV believes in you! It is of course advisable to visit the shade from time to time despite the sun cream. Caps, sun hats or similar accessories are of course always a fashionable alternative.

Security first – festival tent, food and tentlock

Since most festivals go longer than one day, you will need a tent as well, unless you sleep on a meadow. But we assume that you want at least some protection from the night. Tents are of course available in any design from 1-person tents to family tents with up to 8 rooms or more. If you are not travelling with a large group, where there is always someone in your camp to look after the valuables, we recommend that you also buy a castle for your tent. There it is, a normal little boring castle. You can get it at the kiosk, supermarket or even on the Internet. Then you can better protect some of your things from theft. Prinizpiell you should take however nevertheless nothing great valuable with you to the festival, one never knows what can happen.

Ravioli, Barbecue and other food suggestions

The most famous festival are the famous canned ravioli. Cold with a plastic fork in the morning “fresh” from the can – Mjam! Of course, tastes quarrel there. Nevertheless, you should prepare Essen’s technically well. Sure, you can buy food at the festival, but in the long run the costs are high. So do your shopping! For meat lovers – disposable grill, charcoal and sausages in a cool box are a great alternative. Otherwise you can of course also transport fruits or other things in such a cool box. Apart from that we have listed some ideas for you here:

  • Bagels
  • Spaghetti
  • Corny or other bars
  • Chips
  • Cracker
  • Wraps (Ideal for on the go)
  • Pizza (prepared at home, of course you have to like cold pizza)
  • Dried meat like salami
  • bread
  • vegetables (vegetable skewers are also totally delicious on the grill)

Campinggear – This camp equipment is indispensable

You’ve got sunscreen, a tent, something to eat. But a few important things are still missing. Your Campinggear – How would you like to camp without a camping chair and table? The best thing to do is to discuss with the group what the tables will look like, because if everyone brings one you will definitely have too much. You can get your own camping chair for less than 15€ and if you don’t just stand on it and start dancing and jumping, it will also hold out a few festivals. Apart from chair and table it is also good to bring a small gas stove, which you can buy everywhere from discounters like Aldi and Lidl as well as from Rossmann. Then you don’t have to eat your ravioli cold or you can warm something in a pot.

Pavilion for your camp

In order to prevent your camp from being exposed to the sun all day, we recommend that you use a tarpaulin to stretch (can be attached to a tent or tree nearby) or set up a pavilion. Of course, a pavilion is not necessarily a cheap thing, depending on the design, but you can also join together as a group and see what you can get together. It is simply more pleasant and healthier if you have the opportunity to retreat into the shadows.

Musicbox and playlist are essential

Why are you at the festival? Of course to celebrate the music, to have a great time and to create new memories. But for the way there, as well as for the way back and even more for the camping time it is indispensable to have a cool playlist. You should mix them up first on Spotify or another streaming platform. You will also find many inspirations on Youtube or, in the case of Spotify, directly in the search. You’re definitely good for any genre there.

Top 13 Festivals 2019

It’s warm, the beer cold and the tents set up – the festival season begins. People from all over the world travel to Germany to celebrate the different festivals. From Rock am Ring to Splash!, the selection is huge, so fans of every genre will get their money’s worth. We at FIV have selected the top 13 festivals for you, which you should definitely know for 2019.

[shortcode variable slug=”adsense”]

Rock im Park / Rock am Ring

The most famous rock festivals in Germany are Rock am Ring and Rock im Park. The twin festivals will take place at the same time from 07.06.2019 to 09.06.2019. On three days the Nürnburgring in Rhineland-Palatinate and the Zeppelinplatz in Nuremberg are made to tremble. Music from every style is played on a total of four stages, so that everyone gets their money’s worth. The Rock am Ring / Rock im Park Festival is a guarantor for big live acts, which is why the next year will again see the appearance of well-known and internationally successful artists. With a setup of approx. 90 bands and a number of visitors of almost 100.000 variety is pre-programmed, the mood is exuberant and it is an event what every Rock / Pop fan should have experienced. Also for 2019 acts like Slipknot, Die Ärzte or Tool are already confirmed.

Helene Beach

The festival scene also has a lot to offer for electro fans. Every year in July there is the Helene Beach Festival, which attracts 25,000 eletrofans to the Brandenburg city of Frankfurt Oder directly on the Polish border. With four stages, the Helene Beach Festival serves directly at Lake Helene, which provides a welcome cool-down during the high temperatures. Lake Helene was even voted Germany’s most popular lake in 2016 and offers Europe’s largest sandy beach. So if you want to experience an unforgettable summer party, you’ve come to the right place with the 150 acts in total. So we packed our swimming trunks, didn’t forget sun cream and off to the beach party of the year.

With Full Force

From 28.06 to 30.06.2019 the time has come again. The Full Force Festival opens its doors to up to 30,000 metal, hardcore and punk fans. Since 2017 the festival takes place in Ferropolis, Gräfenhainichen (20 km from Dessau). With headliners like Beatsteaks and Apocalyptica the Metalheads will also get their money’s worth. The location has been changed several times due to the constant growth of the festival goers, now it even has shuttle busses which are provided to get from the campsite to the festival area.

Hurricane

The Hurricane in northern Germany is a festival that is well known to everyone. A festival with which one can inspire followers of all music directions since 1977. Rock, pop, hip-hop, electro – diversity is the order of the day. On two open-air stages and a tent stage we celebrate until early in the morning. Originally known under the name “Es rockt in der Heide”, it has become one of the most famous festivals in the country in recent years.

Southside

The Southern German Pandent to the Hurricane Festival in Northern Germany takes place in Neuhausen ob Eck im. The former military area will be transformed into an incredible festival area. Top DJs and other international artists come together at this mega event to make the stages quake. The festival started in 1999 and now almost 60,000 people travel to one of the largest parties in the country every year. The Southside Festival coincides with the Hurricane Festival and the Twin Festivals also share the line-up.

Wacken

The absolute classic among the open-air festivals is Wacken. Every year up to 90,000 metalworkers from all over the world make a pilgrimage to the small village in Schleswig-Holstein – Wacken. Anyone who is interested should not forget his rubber boots, because once it rains the festival turns into a gigantic mud battle, which doesn’t harm the mood at all. An absolute must for all Metal fans!

Fusion

Once a year Technofans get together to celebrate the Fusion Festival in Lärz on a former military airfield. Guests of the festival should be able to live out their freedom. Uncontrolled and casual. The unique concept of the organizers makes you feel like you’re in another world. Every year around 70,000 people from all over the world visit the colourful spectacle. We at FIV can only recommend to every technofan to get involved in this experience.

Nature One

The place to be for every electro fan in Europe is the Nature One Festival. It is not only one of the largest but also one of the best in Europe. Every year around 65,000 visitors come to the event to hear the best DJs of the electro scene live. Up to 300 DJs and LiveActs perform on a total of 4 Main and 19 Club Floors and ensure an unforgettable experience.

Summer Jam

Of course we also have something for the Reggae fans – The Summerjam Festival in Cologne. Every year during the hot season the Summerjam at the Frühlinger See offers an exuberant atmosphere.  As one of the biggest festivals in the reggae and dancehall scene since 1985 around 30.000 people come together every year to spend a breathtaking time. With artists from international industries such as Africa and the Caribbean. Next to two stages, where dancing and singing take place, there is a large food mile where everyone can find something.

Parookaville

EDM and Electro fans watch out, Parookaville is waiting for you. As THE EDM Festival in Germany, which exists only since 2015, it attracts already 80.000 fans (tendency strongly rising!). The festival takes place once a year directly on the Dutch border in the town of Weeze. What makes the festival so special is the idea of creating a kind of village for all festival visitors, how crazy is that? You even get your own “passport” to enter the village. So grab your bags and off you go to the Parookaville in Weeze.

Splash!

Of course we haven’t forgotten our hip hop fans. The place to go for you is the Splash!. It enjoys international popularity and up to 20,000 visitors from all over the world flock to Ferropolis to experience this event live. Hip Hop stars like Casper, Wiz Khalifa or Macklemore have performed there in the past. 2 main days and 2 party tents await you.

Deichbrand

The Deichbrand Festival takes place directly on the North Sea coast of Cuxhaven. On a total of four stages on the grounds around the Nordholzer Seeflughafen, renowned artists from the rock, pop and indie scene perform. That’s reason enough for the 60,000 visitors to travel there. At the dike fire you also have the possibility to stay in the so-called Comfort Village and to rent an allotment garden, a wooden hut, a tipi tent or an igloo for three persons or more for a small contribution towards expenses depending on your preference. Swimming or other activities on the North Sea beach are therefore planned and even expressly desired. A festival with additional beach holidays: For us more than reason enough to call the Deichbrand Festival one of the best festivals in Germany.

Mayday

The Rave Indoor event of the year is the MayDay. Compared to the other festivals it’s only 14 hours, but that doesn’t make it any worse. The rave party of the year takes place from 7 o’clock in the evening until 9 o’clock in the morning. More than 30 different live acts and DJs characterize the evening. You can sleep in a car or in an accommodation as there is no camping site available.

How the dream works – Become a model

Paris, London, New York – commercials, catwalk jobs, showrooms, shootings. As diverse as the fashion metropolises are, as different are the requirements for the profession of a model.
Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Adriana Lima are one of the best paid models worldwide. But in no other industry is fantasy and reality linked as in the fashion scene.

+ AD + Do you know?

Become a model

Exciting personalities, as well as the cooperation with stylists and photographers, journeys through many cities of the world, that’s what many young girls wish for.
But to get that far at all, you have to be prepared for a long way. You have to meet the requirements and still have that certain something.
Models learn at a young age to deal with unpleasant working hours and to be far away from family and friends.
In order to be professional and prepared, it is important to have experienced test shootings and to be able to present a professional portfolio.
Gestures and facial expressions, posing and behaviour at castings, cannot be taught at home in front of the mirror.

Prerequisites for female and male models

As a general rule, not every model fits directly into every area. Over time you learn to cover different areas and to put your own strengths to the fore.
Potential candidates should have as good a command of English as possible, as it is an advantage to be able to communicate independently. To hold your own in this business, you should have a certain stamina, whether you’re a boy or a girl. Every well-known model does sports and eats healthy to stay in shape and keep fit.

I’m pretty enough?

No model has to be flawless, quite the contrary. There are an incredible number of models who are attractive to agencies because of their gaps in their teeth, large moles or scars on their faces. Also tattoo models are more and more in demand. Body size and measurements, as well as age depend on the employer. Often the job display shows how these should be. At many model jobs there are samples for the models and at best it should fit the model directly.

Model by H&M, Zara, Otto & Co

Usually production companies or model agencies work together with H&M, ZARA &Co and take care of your sedcard and applications.
The Hamburg-based company OTTO works with 20 agencies worldwide and Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford, Heidi Klum and many other professional models have already appeared before Otto Linse. At Zara, you can personally look at the lookbooks, designers, stylists and photographers and even remember the names of these people.
An application for H&M can be done via an online portal by entering your personal data and adding some photos. In general, the Internet explains very well how you can apply for a company or agency.

In order to find a serious model agency, you should inform yourself well beforehand. Agencies pay in advance, create sedcards and photos and build you up strategically as a model.

Become a male model: What do I have to consider?

More and more men models are appearing in public. As with the female models, the size, dimensions and charisma must be right. A certain acting talent would be an advantage. The designers want their collections to be presented by models by giving the outfit that certain something. Currently, many model agencies want men with distinctive facial features, a beautiful profile, long legs and sporty bodies. So – if you feel addressed, apply today!

…. It’s a shame guys, but you can’t apply for Germanys next Topmodel. Did you know that every year over ten thousand girls apply for Heidi Klum’s Modelcasting Show? Many have the dream of becoming models and try it out on the springboard TV casting show. Not only Heidi Klum is looking for young models, but also Angelina Kirsch is every year, together with her jury, Germany-wide on the way to find the next Super Curvymodel. The application for TV casting shows is of course different than in a classic model agency.

GNTM & Curvy Supermodel: TV Casting Shows as Breakthrough

Why do most young girls love GNTM? Especially because by participating you can collect many followers on Instagram. Whether you win in the end or not, the participation has already paid off, as most of them can work very well as influencers afterwards. So easy you do it! These casting shows come up with creative ideas every year. At GNTM you can fill out a registration form online and deposit your documents at a specified location on a certain date. For example, in 2017 the applicants should post a video about Instagram with the hashtag #ichbinGNTM2017 by explaining why they of all people are Germanys next top model. You don’t have the measurements like the models at GNTM? Meanwhile more and more curved models are booked. For example Ashley Graham, she is a world famous pluse size model and even ran with Viktoria Secret. In Germany there is now also the casting format Curvy Supermodels. For young women who are not very slim and wear clothes of size 40 or larger, this is an incredible opportunity to become a model. To participate in Curvy Supermodel you apply via an online portal and will be called if there is a promise.

Supermodel: The dream of great success

Let’s take Lena Gercke. She’s not Germanys Next Topmodel winner for nothing. With her open, sporty and communicative nature, she makes customers happy. She doesn’t just look great as a fashion model, she is also a sports model, juror and presenter. Everything is possible in the fashion industry!

Behind the scenes of the newcomers

Our editorial staff has accompanied the model everyday life of a newcomer Lisa, for one day. She is only 15 and is already working with a renowned model agency to professionally design her portfolio. At a daily meeting with the photographer, she accompanies her mother as her legal guardian. As a minor, you have no choice but to take your parents with you. Like Lisa, many young girls this age are still in school. That doesn’t mean you have to drop out of school to be a model. No – a good time management and a lot of discipline are the a&o. Since the shootings sometimes take place in Milan, New York or Paris, Lisa has to be prepared to spend her holidays abroad and run from casting to casting. We are all over Lisa and her photographer is also incredibly fascinated by her looks, but doesn’t want to force her to do anything.
In the meeting, the photographer often emphasizes the motivation and sociability that Lisa has to maintain in order to be successful in this industry in the long term.
In the time of puberty the build of the body and the appearance of the skin changes in girls. That is why the photographer often wants to make Polaroids of her and check her measurements constantly to make sure that her model measurements are fair to the industry. Besides, he emphasizes that her Instagram profile needs more structure and that she should put in her shooting photos. Many bookers take a look at the internet profiles of the girls before booking in order to get a picture of her again. At the end of the day, our editorial team comes up with an astonishing conclusion: It’s very challenging for girls aged 14 and over to get a place in the fashion industry. Apart from hobbies and school, starting out as a model is not for the faint hearted. We have noticed that with the help of a model agency, the work is made much easier and a lot of support is offered. Especially personal coaching helps young models to get a certain feeling for the world of models.

Modelcoaching & Model Agency

Before you apply to a model agency such as Modelwerk, M4 Models, Cocaine Models or Louisa Models, we suggest you as an editor a special. You finally got all the important information you need to get started in this industry. Now you have to collect step by step information which model agencies meet your expectations in order to fill your Sedcard with professional photographs. Before you apply to a model agency like Modelwerk or Cocainemodels, we suggest you, as editors of a special, a selected expert, who even goes on tour in 2019 as a model coach. Lutz Marquart is a renowned personality coach. For over 25 years he has been on the road as a men’s model and has played in several series.

Influencer Event: #1 Sport Influencer Award for Pamela Reif by Angelique Kerber

On 24.05.2017 the Influencer Event 2017 took place in Munich! High above the roofs of the city, the crème de la crème of social media personalities met for a day dedicated to sport and the goal of motivating Germany to exercise more. Under the motto “Generali bewegt Deutschland”, the insurance company, with the help of tennis world champion Angelique Kerber, raised awareness for more exercise through the support of highly motivated influencers.

[shortcode variable slug=”adsense”]

The location took your breath away as you entered the building. When the private elevator arrived on the 11th floor of the building, a glimpse awaited us, as if from a picture book. On the right the Olympic Stadium in all its glory, on the left the roofs of Munich and the Alps in the background. Exactly the right thing for such an event, because this was mainly about one thing. Pictures, pictures, pictures. Gradually, the exclusively invited influencers arrived at the Roof Top and you could watch how the mobile phones were immediately pulled out and stories, pictures or selfies were made. Also the modern designed interior, the seats on the terrace and the press wall offered great locations for the perfect mail.

Influencer – Pamela Reif, Angelo Carlucci & Co.

Gradually all influencers arrived and last but not least the most famous face of the German Instagram scene. Pamela Reif, who has made a name for herself through sports and fitness on Instagram and has now reached a follower number of over 3 million fans on Instagram. The only 1.65m tall beauty, who among other things cooperates with Puma or Hunkemöller and brought her own nutrition and fitness book onto the market, knows how to market it herself. In real life she is as sympathetic as she comes across on her Instagram account. A lively and highly motivated sportswoman who could not have conveyed the message of the day better.

Pamela Reif in interview for FIV Magazine

Shortly before the presentation of the Influencer Award to Pamela Reif by tennis world champion Angelique Kerber, our moderator conducted this interview with the blogger Star!

Of course there were also other influencers from the sports sector present. For example, Tami from @tamitilgner or Elena from @trainhard_eatwell, who are paying with rising followers from 100,000 fans on, are inspiring more and more people. In order to reach and motivate people in Germany who are not normally interested in sports, well-known influencers from the fields of fashion and lifestyle were also represented. Among others Angelo Carlucci from @angelo.carlucci. The actor, model and influencer, who became famous through his role in the TV soap ‘Berlin Day and Night’, currently inspires over 300,ooo people with his daily posts about lifestyle. But also Ebru from @nazjujuju or Irina from @fashionambit who inspire and motivate thousands of people with their outfits on Instagram, are calling for more exercise and a healthier lifestyle.

Even if all influencers have different interests and different fans, it is all the more motivating to see that everyone is working towards the same goal and supporting a campaign together.

Angelique Kerber and #generalibewegtdeutschland

At the latest when the star guest and face of the Angelique Kerber campaign entered the room, everyone was motivated and pulled out their mobile phones to share this experience with their fans. The absolute star of the tennis scene and the reigning world champion gave a motivating speech and once again made the message of the campaign clear. To motivate Germany to more sport, a healthier lifestyle and a healthy diet. Every little thing counts and even the simple things help to lead a healthier life. Whether to go to work not by car but by bicycle or to eat more fruit. The young sportswoman, who after her victories at the Australian Open and the US Open in 2016 was the first German after 1997 to make it back to No. 1 in the world rankings, conveyed the message to the influencers and their fans with a lot of passion and also took part in the programme with a lot of motivation.

[shortcode variable slug=”adsense”]

After a small brunch in round of the influencers and Angeliques welcoming speech, the influencers had the opportunity to spend time privately and personally with the world champion. After visiting the press wall, where star photographer Oliver Rudolph was available to shoot the perfect picture for any influencer, the guests were able to get some insider tips from the US Open winner. A built up net allowed the influencers to practice a tennis serve once with Angelique Kerber. Beside some failed attempts and also a lot of hits, some influencers had discovered their hidden talent. For example, Melisa from @mlsacbc, who usually keeps her fans up to date with the latest fashion trends, explained that she played tennis as a child and is now motivated to start again.

First German Sport Influencer Award!

But the highlight of the day was a surprise that nobody would have expected. The first Sport Influencer Award was presented in Germany! There were a total of three awards. The Rising Star Award, which should go to the influencer who is new to the scene but already makes a big contribution in the field of sports. The lucky winner of this award was the new face in the Instagram scene Fabian Arnold from @fabianxarnold. Even though the athlete still has a relatively clear number of followers of almost 35,000 fans, this number increases daily and very quickly, which is why he more than deserved this award! The Star Award, which goes to the person who represented the biggest fanbase in sports, went to Pamela Reif from @pamela_rf, who motivates thousands of people to do sports every day with her unbeatable number of followers of 3 million fans. And last but not least, the Star of the Day Award, which goes to the person who manages to motivate the most fans in the Challenge. The so-called challenge consisted of calling on fans to support each other. Every influencer has got his own hashtag for this, which the followers should put under a sportive picture of themselves. The influencer, who manages to motivate most of his fans to participate, should win this award. Melisa from @mlsacbc managed to motivate 154,000 fans and therefore deserved to win this award.

After all the hustle and bustle there was still enough time to talk to all the other guests in peace, enjoy the music of DJ Trooper Da Don and eat delicious healthy smoothies and snacks. They laughed a lot, exchanged mobile phone numbers and of course snapped and took pictures for Instagram. The relaxed atmosphere and the private atmosphere made the day a successful event.

Store Openings: 6 reasons why they are great for bloggers!

Store Openings. They are a great way to draw attention to their brand and their new store. A lot of advertising, specials and a cool event help one or the other store to attract many new customers and make a name for themselves. As the topic of influencers and bloggers has become increasingly important lately, many of them are being invited to reach even greater reach. As I’ve recently been invited to one or the other store opening, I have summarized my 6 reasons why I became such a big fan of store openings and why you too should look over at the next opening near you.

+ AD + Do you know?

6 reasons why store openings are great for Bloggers

Store Openings are of course mainly intended for the normal customer. He expects great little things here and usually also great discount promotions or competitions. Since I was invited to one or the other event now even as a blogger, you can look at the whole again from a different angle. So here are my 6 reasons why store openings are just great.

Great catering – a little refreshment while shopping can never hurt

Most store openings entice you on the front door with great little things, such as champagne, lemonade, popcorn, iced coffee, sandwiches or other goodies, because of which it is worthwhile to take a look in the store. With a little refreshment, it’s much better and you’re happy when you have something to snack on.

Event factor – the fun should not be forgotten

Give the customer a good feeling, and keep good memories of the store. So you get the customers to come back again and again. And how could that be better than music? At almost every store opening you can now find a DJ who plays music for the customers. That makes shopping a very exciting experience.

Discounts! – Is there anything better?

Be presented or make a bargain. Is there anything better than knowing that you’ve got something cheaper than it actually is? Almost the best thing about store openings in my opinion are discount promotions or sweepstakes. Whether a wheel on which you can win something, coupons or competitions, it’s just fun and increases the fun factor for the customer enormously.

Star Watch – Meet Stars in Real Life

Stars are often invited to such events, the moderators or just bloggers who use Youtube Cam and Equitment to inspect the store. A store opening is the perfect event to meet someone you know, as the store invites many influencers to showcase the event in a targeted manner. Advantage of these. They usually get something for free or are paid for their performance.

New products, new brands

At Store Openings, depending on the store, you can discover new brands or find products that you did not know before. Quickly you fall in love with the new It-Piece and here comes reason # 3 again to the advantage, because this one gets with a little luck then even cheaper! And what is better?

Specials – Earlier in the Store?

Here’s a small reason for the bloggers or influencers among us. Store Openings are great events that will interest your followers and that you will enjoy. Often by agreement great specials are possible, such as one hour before anyone else in the store to be able to show your followers exclusively products etc. A great idea to make a great new video or just on Instagram live with to take.

My store opening experiences

I was already invited to one or the other store opening and of course also made videos. I have here again a short overview for you.

Onygo Store Opening

This was very spontaneous but was great fun. I was at a store opening in Cologne together with my collegue Soraya and a friend of mine.

Reserved Store Opening

Also this opening was super cool. Nikeata Thompson was there and we were able to get in the store and movies an hour before opening. Also one day before the opening we were already there, and were allowed to put together an outfit for the opening.

Those were my 6 reasons why Store Openings are just great. I hope you liked the little mini blog in between and motivated you to go to an opening soon. Until then, I wish you a great week!

Influencer Events

The topic of influencers and bloggers is currently becoming increasingly important. Many brands and, above all, beauty companies are currently organizing events exclusively for influencers to introduce new products or to draw attention to the brand. But one question remains open. What do you do on such an event? There are so many possibilities and that’s why I took a look around what other brands did, thought things over for myself and summarized them for you.

Program highlights on influencer events

The A & O: food!

Food is in a good mood and of course you want to have it at an event. It is great if you can connect the food with a conscience Fun Fact. Of course, there are many different ways to present food and, of course, different things to serve. What arrives good and what is fun, I’ll show you now.

The classic: buffet from the catering

Of course this is the easiest way to serve food. There is a lot of choice, everyone finds something and you can sit comfortably together while eating, exchange ideas, meet new people or just enjoy.

The Candybar: My highlight with cupcakes & more

There are many ways to put the candybar around. Whether macarones, cupcakes a gummy selection, cotton candy or chocolate. The Candybar offers a wide range of options. Everyone can choose something and it’s more than finger food. People eat while standing it’s a laid back atmosphere.

The mixture of both: Fingerfood & Candy!

You want more than just finger food and sweet serve but not directly a huge buffet must build. Of course, there is also a variant where you can mix light food with the fun of a candy bar. These include, for example, salad bars, where you can put together salad yourself, plates with hearty finger food on the tables and possibly a few sweets as a dessert here and there. People can sit and choose whether they want a proper meal or just appetizers. Especially since this variant can run in parallel next to the normal program.

Influencer Events: Full program with products and talks

Of course, the influencers do not just want to go to an event to eat and meet others. Often the program specializes in the brand. Such a program is easy for beauty manufacturers, as they can work a lot with their products and themes. For all the others I have some ideas here.

Individual events: Personalize and do it yourself

It has a certain fun factor and after the event you have a very special memory of the day. Personalizing clothes or accessories is possible in a variety of forms. For example, patches, small stickers made of fabric, which are pressed by heat on clothing. A great way to quickly and beautifully turn your clothes into something special.

Social Media Content: Great Class Reunion

The intention of such a meeting is, of course, a large reach of people to talk to. Of course, using the followers of the Influncer on such a meeting is the main intention. In order to provide the influencers with good footage for posting, things like a boomerang box or a photo wall are great.

Make-up and Styling Corner: The Must Have for Bloggers!

Since most influencers are female, make-up corners are great. The influencers can get make-up tips and the fun factor is missing there by no means.
