MUSIC MOVES: Bicycle project of the Darmstadt Summer Course

Music moves. The participants of the International Summer Course for New Music know about this. More than 350 young people from more than 50 countries are attracted every two years to attend this famous summer academy in Darmstadt. From morning to late evening they are on the move through the town, from the lodgings (hotel, youth hostel, private lodgings) to workshops, to rehearsals, to discussions and lectures, to concerts and get-togethers.
For all this bicycles are the ideal means of transport: ecological and flexible.



It is appealing to observe so many young people transport the message „music moves“ through the town over two weeks. At the same time the bicycles provide advertising space, like for Fraport AG, Heag holding, Entega, Evonik Röhm - our partners already in 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2016 - or for us as organizer of the Summer Course.


The bikes are rented from the Leipzig based company nextbike: In the first year we were able to give 120 bicycles to our participants, in 2014 we had 175 and already 200 in 2016. For the next Darmstadt Summer Course (14 to 28 July 2018) we are again hoping to get the generous support of sponsors.
