After a little break there is a new edition of our Hey Hey podcast. This time it’s about FairTix Leipzig, an initiative to support the Leipzig club and concert scene.
Our podcast host Sebastian has invited Conne Island booker Jan and Jörg from LiveKommbinat Leipzig, which represents the interests of Leipzig clubs and concert locations, as guest speakers. Jörg was also heard in the first Hey Hey issue.
