Rock, Pop, et cetera - popular music genres Concerts all year round

Many artists that are famous beyond the borders come from the Grand Duchy, such as Seed to Tree, Edsun or Dream Catcher. These pop bands and singers perform on stage on many occasions throughout the year. 

The place(s) to be!

Pop music fans will really enjoy Luxembourg' s many concert halls and festivals!

In August each year, the free E-Lake festival on the shores of Echternach Lake attracts over 20,000 people for a whole weekend. The Fête de la musique features a large number of concerts across the country. It is an event that fans of pop, rock and electronic music never want to miss.

You can immerse yourself in the world of music at the Rockhal concert hall throughout the year, a key venue for pop and rock music in Luxembourg. It is an essential stop for every internationally acclaimed artist's European tour! Here are some of the venues:

  • The Rockhal, with its large hall for 6,400 people and smaller one for 1,200 people. The Rockhal also hosts rehearsal rooms and a Resource Centre for artists or groups.
  • Den Atelier is a concert hall in an old disused garage in Luxembourg-Hollerich. It hosts headliners with world-class reputation in an intimate atmosphere, with a capacity for just over a thousand people.
  • In  addition to classical music concerts, the Luxembourg Philharmonie is also a venue for concerts of world music, jazz, singing, and electronic music.
  • The large auditorium  at the 'd'Coque' National Sports and Cultural Centre  in Luxembourg-Kirchberg can seat up to 8,300 people for concerts by top international stars.

These large infrastructures might be well-known, but off the beaten path are many cafes and bars which regularly host concerts, such as De Gudde Wëllen or Op der Bréck.

Promotion and networking

Nowadays, pop music is an important part of our society and culture. Luxembourg' s music promotion office known as music :LX has  been established to promote Luxembourg artists and bands on the world stage. It allows Luxembourg artists to have new contacts, and supports them financially for their  international tours and appearances.

SACEM, the Grand Duchy's society of music writers and composers, busies itself not only with billing the media broadcasting out of the Grand Duchy for copyright and related fees, but also more particularly with the management and wider use of the Luxembourgish repertoire.
