The music marathon on our website

2012-09-26

The course of the BMW BERLIN MARATHON is also the stage for an almost continuous live concert. Every 500 metres one of the 80 bands will be urging on the runners and serving as an attractive venue for the spectators as well. No other marathon of this magnitude gets over 1,000 musicians out on the street. Some of the highlights are the Turkish rock band at Kottbusser Tor (15 km), the jazz big band at Yorkschlösschen in Kreuzberg (19,5 km) and the samba band at the “Wild Boar” (Wilder Eber” at 28 km). The sounds of one group will barely be fading away when the next beating drums are already within earshot. If you are lucky, you may even get your very own piece played for you as you pass the packed grandstands toward the finish. In more than 80 different beats through Berlin: an experience of sound and running that will echo on long after the event.

Have a look to the interactive course map with band infos and videos, music samples and a photo gallery. You can view a selection of 40music groups.
