Everyone’s welcome at the Fête de la Musique. But for some music fans the barriers might be higher than for others. We want to overcome these barriers, and overcome them together with you: we want to make our concerts more inclusive. That’s why we work with the experts: Handiclapped – Kultur Barrierefrei e.V. – is helping us and helping you to make our concerts barrier-free. Step by step.
We’ve got a guide to improve accessibility at concerts on our website. And if you want to book inclusive bands, you can do that too, via the Pink Music platform.
Pinc Music is the platform for inclusive music. On the Pinc website, organizers and other interested parties can find inclusive bands and solo musicians with disabilities.
For every event the right act:
- From Hamburg to Munich and from Greifswald to Saarbrücken
- From solo artists to orchestras
- From fun drummers to full professionals
- From punk to classical music
The acts are presented in text, with picture and usually a video. They can be searched by various criteria such as state and genre. The contact details of the bands are displayed too, so that interested parties can contact them directly.
Inclusive acts enrich every event. The common experience of their live music connects and remains in memory. The aim of the platform is to give visibility to the musicians and ultimately to ensure that as many inclusive concerts as possible take place.
Pinc Music is run by Handiclapped – Kultur Barrierefrei e.V.. The non-profit association has already organized more than 350 inclusive concerts. The Federal Association for Music Technology MusicTech Germany is also helping with Pinc Music. The Initiative Musik supports the project as part of an infrastructure grant.
