The best boat party cruise in Germany is back and this time we are in the funky and vibrant city of Cologne, cruising up and down the Rhein in fine style. With so much to see and do in this amazing city, we figured that you guys would love to make it a little weekend trip, so we are having three events for you.
‘BBQ Boat Party Cruise’ – Delicious food, the hottest music and the best vibes guaranteed. As always No bull-crap, No stiffness, ONLY non-stop fun and good energy. Enjoy also a special live Steel Pan performance from one of the best steel-pan groups in Europe, Calysonic Steel Orchestra. Pure Panorama vibes!
We leave on the dot, return to the dock. We step off the boat in the ‘Old City’, famous for cool atmosphere, its many bars and busy nightlife. The perfect location for the people still standing and looking to carry on.

Das hier angekündigte Swiss Steelpan Festival wurde leider aus aktuell bekannten Gründen abgesagt.
Die Steelband Barrel Drummers und das Kronen Team freuen sich, dass die gelockerten Corona Empfehlungen dieses Gratis-Konzert und das Zusammensein im Kronengarten ermöglichen. Sie hoffen auf einen angenehmen Sommerabend und freuen sich, wenn karibische Klänge und Rhythmen viele Zuhörer erfreuen können. Bei ungünstigem Wetter würde das Konzert eine Woche später am 14.7.2020 stattfinden.
The Cape Town Steelband Festival is a joint venture between the Cape Town Big Band Jazz Festival and the Steelband Project.
The Steelband Project (Western Cape) was set up in 1997 by Liz Brouckaert and David Wickham. The core focus of the project is to provide quality music education to young people, with a particular focus on youth in under-resourced communities and “youth-at-risk”. The project is active in many suburban, township and rural areas. There are currently 16 steelbands being taught by the Steelband Project on a weekly basis, with an average size of 15 members. The Wynberg bands, although originally taught by the Steelband Project are now entirely independent and are currently taught by Justin Biggs.
Steelbands from suburban, national as well as township schools will participate
The highlight of the performance being a mass performance by all Steelband players.
Tickets available from WebTickets, Pick n Pay outlets.
