After the Breminale – Bremen’s annual music festival at the river Weser – had to be suspended last year due to the pandemic, the people of Bremen and everyone around can again look forward to 5 days full of music and other entertainment.
This year, however, with a slight twist: This summer, Bremen’s music festival runs under the name “Breminale – Dezentrale” (a phonetical wordplay – Dezentrale can be translated here as “decentralized”). Normally, the festival always takes place at the Osterdeich, directly next to the Weser, where every year a very long festival site is built. But this year, in order to comply with the COVID hygiene measures, the various acts take place in different places throughout the city.
What makes the festival so special is that it appeals to all age groups through its varied program, so that the whole city of Bremen can come together.
So finally again this year, from July 21 to July 25, 2021, the city of Bremen gets to enjoy a wide and diverse creative program filled with many different musical genres and bands from and outside of Bremen, which can be found here: https://breminale-festival.de/programm?tag=mittwoch
This year marks the 50th birthday of the University of Bremen. To celebrate half a century of Uni Bremen, the university offers a wide range of various events throughout the year.
The “50 reasons WHY” exhibition (in German: “WARUM? DARUM.”) throughout 50 different locations in Bremen, which started in March and will close in August, displays all of the achievements of people from and with the University of Bremen as well as where the Uni is involved and how it has changed Bremen since 1971. As of October, the exhibition will be brought together in the Lower Town Hall.
The fall program involves a wide range of research and teaching topics under the headline “CAMPUS CITY” which is scheduled from October 14, 2021 – 50 years to the day after the university was founded. More information about CAMPUS CITY will follow soon.
Moreover, Uni Bremen has set up the project “#IchBinUniBremen” (in English: “#IAmUniBremen”) in order to present the ‘human side’ of the University of Bremen: 50 different individuals affiliated with the University of Bremen give personal insights into its past, present and future.
