Cardinal Sessions Festival
Catch-up dates of 23 May and 28 November. Already purchased tickets remain valid.
The Cardinal Sessions Festival takes place in cooperation with BTA.
The Cologne collective Cardinal Sessions has not only made a name for itself in recent years with live acoustic sessions with musicians from all over the world, but is also organizing a festival evening for the eleventh time.
International stars such as Conor Oberst, Hozier, The War on Drugs, Pete Doherty and The Avett Brothers have already appeared in front of Cardinal Sessions' cameras. Special attention is paid to the feeling for young artists - acts like Ry X, First Aid Kit, AnnenMayKantereit or Julien Baker performed in front of the film crew's cameras long before the breakthrough. This is also evident at the festival: artists who a few months later already fill large halls can be seen here once again on a small scale. Appearances by Faber, Andy Shauf, Giant Rooks, Leoniden, Bukahara, Shame, Mighty Oaks and many more delighted the audience. In addition, there were always secret gigs with a reduced set-up - so far, among others, by AnnenMayKantereit and Honig.
