Here today, there tomorrow

You are my summer

Lübeck is YOUR city! Discover Lübeck's spontaneous cultural scene all over the Old Town, special locations and the many artists who are finally back live on stage for you again. Lively, high-quality, random and in the right place at the right time - that's the idea behind our new event series POPUP LÜBECK. It's all about small, very personal cultural experiences and encounters full of music and poetry. If you're lucky, you'll meet us. We have a mini stage in our luggage, a mobile bar and tables and chairs so that you can enjoy your cultural moment in a relaxed way. Of course, we'll keep our distance, check you in and out via the luca app and comply with the Covid-19-related rules. Just drop by!

What can you expect of POPUP LÜBECK?


Cultural moments of POPUP LÜBECK can be enjoyed quite spontaneously in the Old Town. Preferably with sunshine and good mood. What plays a big role is experiencing the moments and places randomly. If you are lucky, you’re in! We will appear at special places, come with great artists and a varied programme from live music to theatre and acting up to casual DJ events. You won’t find a big stage, we will rather be mobile with light and flexible equipment. At our little bar we serve beverages and seating areas invite you to listen, chat and linger.

Where will POPUP LÜBECK take place?

These cultural moments seem to appear out of the blue in public places in the Old Town. And as quickly as the event is set up, it is also gone again just like that. Enjoy the moment of surprise of POPUP!

When will POPUP take place the next time?

The next date will be announced in spring 2022. Basically, however, we decide quite spontaneously when and where we turn up again. The weather is good, the place is perfect - and overnight we set up a place for spontaneous cultural moments. You'll find out when and where we’ll meet three days in advance on Facebook and Instagram. Just follow us!

Who is POPUP LÜBECK made for?

POPUP LÜBECK is made for everyone. Here you can comfortably listen to artists’ performing, meet friends and family, make new friends or just have fun. It will be a place for encounters and dialogue– from person to person, from old to young, from guest to citizen and always with lots of love towards the cultural scene of Lübeck.

What’s the entrance fee for POPUP LÜBECK?

Except for a smile visiting POPUP Lübeck costs you nothing. We want everyone to have fun without paying anything. Just come and join us!

How sustainable is the concept?

The POPUP LÜBECK concept puts a lot of emphasis on sustainability in all areas. For example, we use fair-trade coffee in our small integrated catering unit and offer various regional and high-quality products. Tableware and cutlery are recyclable or biodegradable and we try to avoid waste wherever possible. Our mobile furniture was produced in a resource-saving manner by local service providers or recycled from used material. It is used repeatedly to keep the ecological footprint as low as possible. The POPUP LÜBECK locations in public areas are powered by green electricity. And last but not least, we naturally ensure that the artists receive a fair performance fee.

Who had the idea, who invented it?

One can say that POPUP LÜBECK is an innovative work of art. Many creative minds and hard-working hands were involved from planning to implementation. From our project idea and development of the concept to the designs and construction of our mobile furniture by the agency "Design for Human Nature" and the participating carpentry and locksmith workshops to the implementation on site by our event team. And we sincerely thank the Possehl Foundation for sponsoring the project.
