A nostalgic journey into your own music history
At the rock’n’popmuseum Gronau, memories are awakened
Suddenly it’s there again, the feeling from back then. Phil Collins sings Against All Odds - and your heart beats faster, as it did at Klammerblues with your first true love. In the Fantastischen Vier music video, the red Opel Admiral drives past and soon it’s not just your thoughts that begin to move to the beat. Is it them!?! Or them!?! The sound at the rock’n’popmuseum Gronau goes straight to your feet. And memories are awakened. Of the first live concert you went to, squeezed in between all the fans in front of the stage. Of legendary festivals that turned into wild parties in the mud. Of dancing all night to music by the Bee Gees, Madonna or David Bowie. Suddenly you are right back there, humming along to every ABBA song and just wanting to slip on the King of Rock’n’Roll’s jacket. Good times!
A unique museum meets a unique musician
A journey through one’s own music history can lead to surprising encounters! In the year of Beethoven, Germany’s only museum of 20th century pop music is making an exception – and dedicating itself to a star, who was active long before the term ‘pop’ was invented, but was still involved in terms of music history: From April to October, the “Ludwig lebt!” (Ludwig lives!) exhibition will show the traces the composer left on contemporary popular music, for example with bands such as Die Toten Hosen, the Electric Light Orchestra and even The Beatles.
