Last year’s event brought a burst of music, tastes and culture from Hamburg to London and this year they look to build on the success, which saw a footfall of over 11,000.
On September 1st-2nd, Hamburg on Tour (organised by the Hamburg Convention Bureau) will be back and bringing along with it a fabulous one-of-a-kind pop up event.
Shoreditch will once again showcase this lively and vibrant city through food, art and live music.

The free event has teamed up with a host of exciting Hamburg festivals including: Elbjazz, Wacken Open Air, Hurricane Festival and Reeperbahn Festival, all bringing a selection of their bands to the London stage for two days of great live music.
The festivals range in music styles from rock and jazz to metal and alternative – bringing a taste of all musical genres for Londoners to enjoy.
