The date for the award gala of the Hamburg Music Prize HANS has been officially confirmed. On 24 November 2015,, the most innovative, creative and artistic achievements of the Hamburg music scene will once again be honoured at Hamburg’s market hall concert venue with the prestigious award. The prize-giving gala will be presented by the young local musician Lukas Nimscheck. Last year , Nimscheck and his hip hop group “Deine Freunde” have been named winner in the “Outstanding Development As Hamburg Artist” category.
From Winner to Presenter
“Last year I was honoured with a HANS award. This year, I will be welcoming all winners of awards on stage”, says Nimscheck. “I look forward to an exciting and entertaining evening.” With his hip-hop group “Deine Freunde”, the 27-year-old re-invented the genre of children’s music. Combining well-produced hip-hop with sophisticated lyrics, he ventured into a hitherto unoccupied gap – for which his band was recognised with the Hamburg Music Award HANS in 2014.
Gala with 500 Guests
The HANS Hamburg Music Prize 2015 will be awarded for the second time in Hamburg’ market hall. 500 invited guests from the media, culture and business are expected to attend the gala. “IN 2014, we have found ideal conditions here”, explains Uriz von Oertzen, co-initiator of the HANS and CEO of the Syndicate of Hamburg’s Music Industry. “The traditional music club is a first class environment for our ceremony.”
All winners of HANS will be determined by a jury. Last year, Marcus Wiebusch was honoured twice next to “Deine Freunde”. In previous years, also Tocotronic, Boy, “Inas Nacht” wallpaper Records, the club Uebel & Gefährlich and Thees Uhlmann were among the winners.
