We are a young team of creative and dedicated bookers, sharing the love for good music and thrilling live shows. Besides working with well-established acts we also have our focus on building up talents & newcomers and developing careers as a local promoter in Germany from the start.
With our PR and marketing team we work on individual concepts and strategies for our artists. They benefit from our years of experience in the live business and our innovative ideas that come from our passion for social media and modern marketing tools. There is no blueprint for an artist’s career – and that’s what makes it so exciting.
Contra Next was founded in 2016 as the contemporary department of Contra Promotion GmbH to promote tours and shows in Germany for national & international artists. Whether it’s singer / songwriters, hip hop, electronic, or indie acts, no matter how cozy or vast the venue.
Contra Promotion has grown to become an established brand in Germany’s events industry since 1993, now selling more than 500.000 tickets a year and organizing events like the Zeltfestival Ruhr (past line ups included Ed Sheeran, The Script, The Gaslight Anthem, Jamie Cullum and many others).
