Helge Schneider is one of Germany’s best-loved musicians and entertainers. Even though he is originally from the Ruhr area, he has not yet performed at Ruhrfestpiele. This is about to change: for our anniversary, he will perform his songs with a small ensemble. While he initially cancelled all his performances due to the pandemic, he fortunately changed his mind last fall. In June, he will bring his incomparable blend of humor and musical brilliance to Recklinghausen with an intimate outdoor performance.
