Organizers in Osnabrück

Committed in the background

They are the driving forces backstage, behind the stage. They plan the acts they put on different stages and often also take care of the advance ticket sales. Their events take place not only in Osnabrück, but also in other cities.

The Forum Osnabrück für Kultur und Soziales e.V. (Forum Osnabrück for Culture and Social Affairs), FOKUS for short, plans open-air cultural events, among other things, and is involved in many other events.

Focus e.V.

Goldrush Productions take care of artist booking in the field of concert, comedy, reading and theater. Goldrush Productions events are mostly held at Rosenhof (company headquarters). Since 2015, it also organizes the Schlossgarten Open Air. Ticketheimat is new for advance ticket sales.



Hörsaal Events specializes in comedy and cabaret. They host indoor, as well as open air during the summer months. They are also committed to student events such as the Beer Diploma.
