with an almost sold-out Advent concert and a great performance of the Young Voices, the blacksheep year ended in an atmospheric mood. We look forward to seeing you at our kick-off event on Saturday, 6th January, from 3.30 pm in the Bonfelder Bislandhalle.
In the Bislandhalle we present our annual program and our festival trailer, we sell tickets for the Cubanian Night on Sunday, 21st January, 8 pm, in the Kurhaus in Bad Rappenau. And we spend nice hours with you on culture, coffee and cake.
Until our next reunion we wish you a nice Advent season. Before Christmas, we will announce on December 17 our top act for the festival Saturday, 9th June.
Our Bookers have signed the remaining contracts this week. As a result we have a celebration (or jubilation) present for you all: At the 5th blacksheep Festival, from Thursday, 7th June, till Saturday, 9th June, we invited not only 18, we booked 19 bands. You wanna know which one that is?
What a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful Charity Night!
We would like to thank all those who made this unusual event possible: you as our great audiance, the big Help for little Heroes, who gave us the good reason for the Charity Night, all our sponsors, our helpers and our artists, Chris Thompson, Albert Hammond, Julia Neigel, Fools Garden, Bananafishbones, Dante Thomas and David Hanselmann, his group Risk and Jimmi Love and his Praise Family.
Now we are concentrating on the 5th blacksheep festival, which will take place from Thursday, 7th June to Saturday, 9th June, with 18 Bands in Bonfeld.
Countdown: We celebrate on Saturday, 4th November, from 6pm to 12 pm a kind of an indoor festival with many famous and wonderful artists. They all play for the Big Help for small Heroes, a non profit organization, which supports sick children, some of them with cancer, and their families in hospital and at home.
At the blacksheep Charity Night you hear Albert Hammond, Chris Thompson, Fools Garden, Julia Neigel, Dante Thomas, the Bananafishbones and David Hanselmann with Risk and Jimmi Love’s Praise Family.
Please note: We do no longer send by post. If you’ve already ordered tickets in our onlineshop, you’ll finde them under your name in our box office.
Albert Hammond is one of the artists, who are playing at the blacksheep Charity Night on 4th November, 6pm, at the redBlue in Heilbronn. Here are his greetings, you can also hear on Radio Ton, our media-support for the Charity Night und the blacksheep Festival. Have fun.
The presale for our Charity Night in Saturday, 4th November, in Heilbronn, redBlue, is running. Topstars like Albert Hammond and Chris Thompson are playing for a smaler part of their salary to support us and the Foundation Great Help for small Heroes, and here especially for the care of premature children and children with birth defects.
From 6 pm are also playing: David Hanselmann together with Risk and Jimmy Loves Gospelchoir (Rock meets Gospel), Fools Garden, Julia Neigel, Dante Thomas and the Bavarian cult band Bananafishbones.
80 percent of all tickets sold so far are seat tickets. That’s why we decided now to bury the hall in the redBlue, to set up space at standing tables and for dancing on the side of the hall and sell from now on only seat tickets. They are now available at a price of 59 Euros in our blacksheep Onlineshop *, at Reservix * as well as in the numerous presale offices in the region. Read more about our Charity Night

blacksheep has fulfilled its promise and donated the proceeds from its drinks sale at the past Night of Arts in Bad Wimpfen.
317.46 Euros were in the wooden Blue Tower, the creative director Franz Koroknay (left) now handed over to mayor Claus Brechter. Not a large amount, said Koroknay. But the Guinness sales were not half as high as blacksheep would have liked in the face of the bad weather: “Next year again,” promised the creative team leader.
The next Night of Arts will take place on Saturday, 5th May 2018. Strong>
The Bad Wimpfen mayor Claus Brechter called the blacksheep engagement at the Night of Arts a “great action”. He was happy to receive the donation thanked blacksheep with a small Blue Tower – without scaffolding.
