HAMBURG MARKETING/ FREE AND HANSEATIC CITY OF HAMBURG

FIFA WORLD CUP 2006 FAN FEST

1.5 million visitors, an event site covering 80,000 square metres, 200 hours live programme & over 30 degrees Celsius in the sun – for 31 days Hamburg is in the grips of football fever.

In Hamburg it’s good-bye to the traditional fan-meets-video screen and hello to the Fan Fest 2006! At Hamburg’s mega-event site, the Heiligengeistfeld, public screening becomes a whole new experience. Thousands of people of every nationality imaginable have gathered to celebrate their very own “summer fairy tale” in a stadium-like environment. They cheer and sigh in unison, and like a bubbling cauldron emotions erupt and subside.

In the football summer of 2006 Kontrapunkt stages a never-seen-before fan fest and introduces a kind of public screening that remains popular up to this day.
