R#32 special episode with Stefan Jonas, organizer of the Booze Cruise

Stefan Jonas Booze Cruise

Whether as a fanzine maker or concert organizer, Stefan Jonas has been active and at home in the punk rock scene for a long time. The fifth Booze Cruise was scheduled to take place in Hamburg and Bristol this year. The punk rock festival would have brought 60 bands to the stages in several clubs, but the Corona crisis put a major damper on everyone involved's plans.

Stefan Jonas spontaneously initiated a livestream festival, which has now taken place on its fifth weekend and has collected five-figure donations through entry fees. In the daily special episode of the Redfield Podcast, the organizer reports on how he organizes the Boatless Booze Cruise, what pitfalls an international line-up can have and what future trends such an approach could establish.
