He said the concerts, which ran under the German hashtag #lauterwerden (“turn up the volume”), met the primary goal of supporting those without whom music would cease to play.

They also demonstrated the socio cultural importance of live music and live experiences in an impressive way. “Just like millions of fans, we, too, cannot wait to experience these moments together again,” Lieberberg commented.
The money raised will be distributed by Live Nation’s Crew Nation initiative. Presenting partner Deutsche Telekom contributed €250,000. Sponsors making the non-ticketed event possible include SEAT, ING, eBay Kleinanzeigen, we care®,  New Yorker and MasterCard.
Donations are still being accepted at All concerts from the #lauterwerden performances will soon be available for free on Telekom channels MagentaMusik 360 as well as MagentaTV.
