The City of Luxembourg has teamed up with den Atelier for a series of open-air concerts in Limpertsberg.

The City Sounds series of open-air concerts on the Glacis will live up the first two weeks of August.

Proceedings kick off on Friday 6 August with a Tribute To The Beatles featuring an 18-strong ensemble including strings and brass sections. The band will play a selection of Fab Four favourites.

The following evening, wonderfully raucous marching band Meute will shake things up.  The band from Hamburg comprises a dozen drummers and horn players from Hamburg who play hypnotic, beat-driven techno

European pop diva Axelle Red, who has performed several times at den Atelier, is on the Glacis stage on Sunday 8 August. Fellow Belgian Loïc Nottet headlines on Monday 9 August with Luxembourg artist Edsun as the support act.

Two gigs by artists who are (still) big names in Germany--reggae star Gentleman on 10 and rapper Sido on 12 August--have already sold out.

Things wrap up with Majan on Friday 13 August. The German rapper won a New Music Award in 2019 and is known for his storytelling lyrics about his roots in small town Baden-Württemberg, his family and his gang. Luxembourg rappers Nicool and Maale Gars as support acts.
