Charity Night – Order your seat

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.

Help for the Blue Tower

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.

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.

Django Asül and Charity Night

It is already a few days ago that the 4th blacksheep festival closed its doors. Visitors reactions and medias publications are evaluated.  From now on we are looking forward to our next events.

So sales started for the comedian Django Asül on Friday, 22th September, and the blacksheep Charity Night on Saturday, 4th November, with Chris Thompson, Albert Hammond, Julia Neigel, Fools Garden, Bananafishbones, Dante Thomas and Rockin’ Halleluja feat. David Hanselmann. Read more.

“A jewel”

Mondays after a festival are special days, because the medias publish their results. Again we got a lot of positive response for the blacksheep festival. An editor of the daily newspaper Heilbronner Stimme  called us “A jewel”. Sorry, his article is only available in German. But I try to explain some of his statements: A festival how it should be; wonderful weather; chilled and peaceful visitors; high level artists; a lot of love’s around, also for details; a festival for different generations; “best festival ever” – that’s what the bands say.

“best festival ever”

Drei Tage pralle Lebensfreude – blacksheep Festival schließt mit Besucherrekord

Das 4. Blacksheep Festival – Live im Bonfelder Schlosshof war so gut wie ausverkauft und damit ein voller Erfolg. Es ging an diesem Samstag mit einem neuen Besucherrekord zu Ende. Nach Auszählung aller Einlassdaten kommt die blacksheep Kulturinitiative Bonfeld auf über 8000 Besucher. Das sind über 500 mehr als im Vorjahr.

Monate vorher waren für den Donnerstag mit Topact David Knopfler keine Karten mehr zu bekommen. Nazareth, The Common Linnets und Saga sorgten am Samstag dafür, dass schon im Vorfeld des Festivals keine Karten mehr zu haben waren. Aufgrund des wunderbaren Wetters zog der Freitag auf der Zielgeraden Besucher an, die sich spontan auf den Weg gemacht haben „Hier ging an der Abendkasse und über Ticketskript noch einmal mehr als erwartet“, sagt der Vorsitzende, Ulrich Schneider.

Überwältigend war nach den Worten von Kreativteamleiter Franz Koroknay die Resonanz von Besuchern und Musikern. Blacksheep bekam von fast allen Bands das Prädikat „best festival ever“ zugesprochen. Die Common Linnets, Hunter & the Bear, The Hooters, Alan Doyle, Jersey Julie und viele andere wollen so bald wie möglich wiederkommen. Fast alle nahmen wahr, dass hier 260 Ehrenamtliche allein bei der Kulturinitiative mit sehr viel Liebe sehr engagiert arbeiten, dass sich alle, Besucher wie Künstler, wohlfühlen.

Die Verantwortlichen werden nun die Rückmeldungen zum Festival auswerten und an der einen oder anderen Stelle nachjustieren. Nach dem Festival ist vor dem Festival: Der Termin für das 5. blacksheep Festival steht: Die ersten Bands für die Tage von Donnerstag bis Freitag, 7. bis 9. Juni 2018 sind gebucht.
