Fête de la musique 2021 – June 21st

La Fête de la Musique is an annual music festival that takes place on June 21st. On Music Day, citizens of a city or country are allowed to play music outside in their neighborhoods or in public squares and parks. Free concerts are also organized, where musicians play for fun and not for money.

In the region, la Fête de la Musique is celebrated especially in Hannover. There will be a total of around 60 concerts at 13 different locations in Hannover. Each of the stages will be played not just once, but several times in a row. Unlike in previous years, visitors will need a ticket. 

The ticket is free of charge and you can go there for free with your semester ticket. Face mask is required and sufficient distances must be observed.

The complete program can be found here.

Digital event: Stage38 – Rapper/MC JPen feat. Derah – June 24th, 2021 at 7:00 pm

Guest on the virtual stage of the association KreativRegion e.V. is the rapper and MC JPen. Derah supports him as a backup rapper during the performances of the songs. Both have been making music for almost 25 years – together for about 6-7 years and are two-thirds of the band “Synonym”. However, Stage38 is supposed to be about JPen’s solo projects, as his EP was released on Spotify on June 11th. Derah will also be featured on it with a guest part. We want to get to know the “Japanese Pen” better and of course know what drives him as a musician, what it’s like to be an artist and if these turbulent times have an impact on his music.

Online Lecture: Urban Climate in Transition by Dr. Björn Maronga (Institute for Meteorology and Climatology – Leibniz Universität Hannover) – June 29th, 2021 at 5:00 pm.

How can cities prepare themselves well for future climate and environmental changes? Which adaptation strategies such as greening measures, building insulation or intelligent façade painting make sense? How can the conflict between increasing settlement pressure and necessary adaptations to the consequences of climate change be addressed? The basis for these planning decisions for the future in cities are powerful urban climate models. However, there is still a lack of models that are capable of making comprehensive and clear statements on climate change and urban climatological relationships. The simulation model PALM, developed by an international consortium under the leadership of the Institute of Meteorology and Climatology, starts here and opens up novel investigations of urban climatic processes with a novel level of detail. The microclimate can be studied in detail in individual city districts. Critical locations in terms of heat stress, wind comfort and pollutant concentration can be identified.
