Björn Kagel

Since 2009 Björn works at the immergutrocken e.V., the NPO behind the Immergut Festival. He’s responsible for the Booking, Management, Marketing, Sponsoring sector. The Immergut Festival was founded in 2000, takes place every year in Neustrelitz (Germany) in late May and has been sold out repeatedly for over ten years (cap. 5.000). Keeping the feeling of "we-are-in-this-together" alive, we avoided pumping up the Immergut into another "festival monster", in which you have to look for the stage on a map. Two large stages taking turns + one small stage for readings and Singer-/Songwriter is all that is needed to experience the season’s best in indie-rock-pop. A mix of national heroes of the scene, like The Notwist, Tocotronic, Blumfeld, Gisbert zu Knyphausen, or Hundreds, alongside international guests like Mogwai, Two Door Cinema Club, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Nada Surf, Broken Social Scene, The Weakerthans, Cursive, TEED, Efterklang, Jens Lekman, The Vaccines or Adam Green has been the foundation of the festival from the beginning on. Besides this Björn studied Business Administration (B.A.) and currently studies Nonprofit Management (M.A.) in Berlin and worked for Initiative Musik and Berlin Music Week.
