Jugend Rettet x Kölner Flüchtlingsrat e.V. x Sea-Watch x Seebrücke Köln x SOFRA Cologne x Start with a Friend x Rainbow Refugees Cologne – Support Group x Refugee Law Clinic Cologne and Club Bahnhof Ehrenfeld the summer festival “United We Dance” – celebrate solidarity together!
On 30 August 2019, the summer festival “United We Dance” invites you to join in the celebrations at 4 p.m. at the Club Bahnhof Ehrenfeld. The programme: entertainment for kids, films and information stands for the information hungry, bands on stage and beats from the record for the dance lovers until late into the night.
This year, Cologne’s initiatives and clubs are organizing the “United We Dance” festival for the first time with the Club Bahnhof Ehrenfeld. The aim: not to forget the topic of flight! 2019 is a year in which we have to experience again how the European policy of sea rescue on the Mediterranean is denied, the civil sea rescue is criminalized and paralyzed, the Ministry of the Interior radically tightens the refugee law, xenophobic parties in Europe continue to strengthen and right-wing extremists murder again.
Instead of sticking our heads in the sand, we want to get loud: The festival is for families, refugees, clubbers, interested people, activists, and anyone who wants to spend an informative afternoon in our summer garden with a party afterwards. All proceeds go into the work of the organizing NGOs.
The afternoon is dedicated to families and beer garden friends: food, drinks, music and a children’s programme are available from 16:00.
In the early evening, the films “Iuventa” and “Lifeboat” will give an insight into civil sea rescue on the Mediterranean Sea. Crew members tell how they experience the rescue on the spot and can answer questions from the audience. Another interesting film will be shown by Ibrahim Mokdad of SofraCologne: He reports on life as a homosexual refugee.
And not to forget: The party. From 10 p.m. on, the acts Gato Preto and Mr Shirazy, as well as the DJs Jazzmin & DJ Big M will make the rooms of the CBE swing!
Admission costs €6 – €10 depending on how much you want to pay from 22:00.
We are looking forward to many visitors!
