Iggy Pop, the rock icon, along the Alzette border

Programme of the spring-summer season of the cultural centre Neimënster

Le nouveau programme de l'Abbaye de Neumünster s'annonce prometteurThe spring-summer season of the cultural centre Neimënster sounds promising: during the six coming months, everybody – or at least almost – can find his/her happiness: Let's start with Iggy Pop, the rock icon who will be on stage on the esplanade of the abbey on 11 July 2016. He'll present his new album 'Post Pop Depression'on the occasion of the OMNI festival (Objets musicaux non identifiés — non-identified musical objects). The latter will also be the occasion for Joe Bonamassa (12 July), Magic Trio (13 July), Putain de guerre! (15 July), Brenna Whitaker (19 July), N.A.R.G./KFClub (20 July), Hoba Hoba Spirit (22 July) and the traditional Blues’n Jazz Rallye (23 July) to delight the public. 

But first, it's William Shakespeare's and Miguel de Cervantes' turn to pay a visit to the Abbey of Neumünster, well at least sort of: in honor of the 400th anniversary of their death, the plays 'The Tempest' and 'La Historia del cautivo' will be performed at the end of April. Then, the '¡No pasarán!' festival will celebrate from 28 April to 22 May 2016 the 80 years of the Spanish revolution, in particular with a Rafael Amor concert (7 May).

Furthermore, from April to September, Neimënster will accomodate the 9th edition of the 'Printemps des poètes' (16 April) (Poets' spring), the Day of Labour and Cultures (1 May), the 'apéro-jazz', etc. In July, more precisely from 2 to 3 July, the festival around Greek culture will take place with events around cinema, dance and gastronomy. On 15 July, the public will have the possibility to see the musical performance 'Putain de guerre!'. The serious topics will continue until September, when the 'Hate' festival (1 to 5 September) will take place with a lecture by Luc Spada, a dance performance and theatre.
