The Hamburg P!O!P! Weekender 2009 (16-19/04/2009)

Post by Pop Goes Art » Mon Feb 02, 2009 08:34

P!O!P! Kids Of The World Unite!

The subtitle says "places where you can go and have fun", I guess I'm "Right Here" (The Go-Betweens)! §;^D

Hands up, who's already been to groovy Hamburg?!? Oooops, we don't see enough hands, how about a visit for a four day weekender between 16th and 19th April 2009?

I'll keep this short and sweet since every information you'd possibly need can be found at our newly created myspace profile (including advice on inexpensive travels and accommodation) and we hope the line-up does speak for itself. Prinzenbar is our nicest venue in town, but the capacity is limited to 200 guests!

The Hamburg P!articoloured O!ffbeat P!honology Weekender 2009
Thursday, 16/04/2009, until Sunday, 19/04/2009.

@ austere-popster

Introduce yourself and yours truly will introduce you to a bunch of groovy P!O!P! Kids!

There'll be a lot of international guests, thus far we know about P!O!P! Kids from Sweden, Denmark, UK, Austria, Italy, France, Australia, US of A and "... Then Poland" (The Swell Maps). §:^D

Everyone I spoke to is really looking forward to have one "Smashing Time" (The Television Personalities)!

"Laugh, I Could Have Cried" (The Brilliant Corners). §;^D

Seriously, though, no-one will laugh at your language skills, I'm sure everyone will be impressed that you speak German at all! Spain, wow!

@ Everyone

Please ensure you will purchase tickets very soon if you haven't already, our two biggest city magazines will have larger features and once they're issued by the end of this month those tickets could be gone within days. For now, we have consciously kept a very low profile to allow for many international P!O!P! Kids.

we're definitely considering going for friday's and saturday's shows, but it seems to be a bit of a hazzle finding a flight that fits and a hotel.

any recommendations on affordable places near the venue?

@ cupcake_love

Our Myspace Profile does give advice on travels and accommodation (the direct link is http://www.threecheers.de/pdf/popweekender.doc)!

Ryanair is currently really inexpensive from Stockholm and you'll also find advice on Gothenburg and other key cities in said document.

Is there any way you could provide a pdf of that file? I have no way of reading .doc files unfortunately and I wish to get some advice in regards to travelling from the gothenburg area.

Cap ou pas cap?

@ fourclovers

Not from the office, unfortunately, but please check http://www.threecheers.de/pdf/popweekender.pdf tonight or thereafter.

In the meanwhile, below is an excerpt:

Accommodation

Please note that both Schanzenstern Hostels and Rock'n'Roll Hotel Kogge are already fully booked during this weekender.

There is still plenty of choice regarding inexpensive hostels / hotels in Hamburg, though.

Here is a decent overview regarding hostels with guests' comments and you can check there as regards the closeness to venue Prinzenbar (Kastanienallee 20, 20359 Hamburg, parallel street of the infamous Reeperbahn at St. Pauli). If you'd rather prefer inexpensive hotels, Geoffrey Ingram has heard decent reports about Hotel Pacific (centrally located at Schanzenviertel) and Holden Caulfield has had rather satisfactory experiences at several Motel One Hotels in other cities of Germany (the one in Hamburg is not very central, but only 15 to 20 minutes with the bus 283 or combined bus and tube to the venue).

Travels from a few key cities (for 16-20/04/2009)

[...]

Gothenburg - return trains via Copenhagen currently from approximately 100 Euro per person. Return trains from Gothenburg to Copenhagen (approx 20 Euro return we've been told) and return trains with Deutsche Bahn (currently 82 [actually only 72] Euro). http://www.bahn.de
