Some introductory words beforehand
We always print flyers that show all events of the month. Of course you are also welcome to distribute your own flyers. If you have your own posters, we will gladly take them along when we distribute flyers. We create an event on Facebook and invite you as host. The more people you invite, the better.
And then there’s the tiresome GEMA issue. You can download the list here. Please fill in the tracks in advance and send them to us. We’d like to make sure no songs subject GEMA figure on the list.
If you want to play a track subject to GEMA fees, please contact us beforehand.
We prefer Gema-free bands. If you are not and still want to play here, then you pay Gema fees, we don’t pay them anymore. Let the Stones of this world get even richer, but without our help.
During the event
There’ll be someone at the venue by 18.30 o’clock to open the door for you. For unloading, you can park opposite the venue on „Gladbacher Wall“ street in the absolute no-parking area. Parking spaces are extremely rare here – and it is usually worth stopping opposite the venue and risking a parking ticket (15 – 30 euros). Nobody’s been towed yet. Cheap Parking, see Map!
After the soundcheck (please keep it short) there will be something to eat for you in the „backstage kitchen“. Please let us know in advance how many vegetarians/vegans are among you and how many people you have in total. Beer, water and soft drinks are readily available for you. There’s one crate of beer per band. Once emptied, band members shall get all drinks at half the price at the bar. The backstage area of the Sternhagel is also the bar owner`s private kitchen. Please use only the band fridge and do not destroy anything.
When exactly you start the concert is up to you. The concert ends at 22:00 o`clock on the dot. We have enormously picky neighbors. Please organise your showcase in such a way that you have already played the encores by 22:00 o‘clock. A few minutes after 22:00 o’clock the cops shall quite certainly be standing in front of the door – and we probably will not feel like we´re up for it.
After the show
The stage will have to be cleared of instruments and equipment by 23:00 o’clock at the latest so that the stage is free for normal pub business.
Our stage measures 3.30 x 1.80 m. On site we have: One PA (Behringer XENYX X1222USB) and two microphones (incl. cables & tripods).
Everything else you will kindly bring yourself. If two bands are playing, please agree on a backline. A monitor shall not be required. The venue is very small, you can hear yourself very well
through the two loudspeakers (facing the stage).
In order to give everyone the opportunity to visit our concerts, we have decided to let the visitors decide for themselves how much they want or can pay, within certain limits. This range is individual and will be determined after consultation with you. We do not pay a lump sum, but do doordeals (30/70).
Besides, we can’t pay gas money, we can’t provide sleeping places.
