The Giessen Summer of Culture takes place as an open-air summer highlight in the region on the open-air stage at Schiffenberg Monastery - one of the most beautiful venues in Central Hessen. From August 22 to September 1, 2024, the Giessen Summer of Culture will once again lure visitors out into the warm summer evenings for great concerts and events. Towards the end of the summer, the big guns will once again be brought out in central Germany when renowned acts from the worlds of music, comedy and literature take to the stage at the Giessen Summer of Culture.
Selected events from a wide variety of genres are presented to a broad audience over many dates, so that everyone's taste is catered for. With a varied concept, the Giessen Summer of Culture promises to be another fabulous series of events this year.

Bosse - about dreaming
Taking in and enjoying the particularly beautiful and magical moments to the full, being aware of them and celebrating them. For Bosse, there is nothing better than being on stage and experiencing this feeling together with the fans. Concerts are his elixir of life, they are the real reason for him to make music and record songs. Whether at the biggest festivals such as "Rock am Ring/Rock im Park" or at club concerts that were sold out within minutes. Bosse has long been one of the most established and recognized artists in the live business - and he continues to do so. On the Schiffenberg, he will share the magical live moments with his fans.

Santiano
The band Santiano has been an integral part of the music scene for over a decade. The shanty rockers from Flensburg are one of the most successful bands in Germany. Their new album "Doggerland" has just been released, reaching the top of the Official German Album Charts for the eighth time and making music history at the same time. No other German band has ever managed to reach number 1 in the album charts with all eight album releases in eleven years.
In 2022, Santiano performed at the Giessen Kultursommer for the first time and played a sold-out, highly acclaimed concert on the Schiffenberg. Now their cross-generational audience can once again look forward to the band's driving beats, powerful choirs and rousing hooks. And with many a surprise, the band is known to provide a perfect and unique live experience.
