We will have - hold on tight - FIVE bands playing and we expect you to bring along your own instrument/voice or just an open mind and will to enter the stage.

    Hello Barbaros,
    It is great to hear that you are interested in this event.
    I don’t know if I understand right but if you want to join the organiser meetings it would most probably not be possible because you are located in Turkey. It is the Hamburg community which organises this event and invites the whole couchsurfer world to join.
    So you would be a participant of this one weekend long cool party.
    See you

    Hi Sonja,

    Will there be a dedicated CS host list or should we try and find a host nearer the time?



  17. Xhelona Haveric

    Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany

    Hey Sonja,

    Thank you. I would like to join the organisation team. Let me know in a message probably in which stage are you now, next meeting date and so on. It will be a pleasure for me. Thanks again.

    Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany

    Hi Huzaifa,
    We will try to implement a couch market into the website (like 2 years ago) where you can offer a place or look for a couch. If we do not succeed there will be another solution on Couchsurfing.

    Hei Fleur !!!

    I just booked my tickets to Hamburg and reach there on 27th night. This would be my first city invasion in Europe - so really looking forward to it !!!!!

    Is there any arrangement - network of designated & willing hosts - to host the travellers this weekend? I am sending out personalized requests too, but thought I would check with you as well....

    Can't wait for July !!!! :D

    Peace & Love,
    Manu :D
