What: Trio of live acts
Where: Amphitheatre Park Kirchberg, Rue Léon Hengen Luxembourg
When: Sunday, 5 September - Wednesday, 8 September - info & tickets

Summer breaks (especially the month of August) can be grueling for music fans, as many music venues shut their doors to catch their breath from a packed summer. We're even more spoiled now, as den Atelier are launching into the new season with a beautiful open air event called POND Eclectic near the Coque sports facility in Kirchberg.  White Lies unfortunately cancelled for Sunday, but the opening party is still on, as well as Jose Gonzalez on Monday, L'imperatrice on Tuesday, and Olli Schulz on Wednesday. Grab your tickets over the weekend before it's too late!

2. See an open air art exhibition in the Grund

What: Konscht am Gronn
Where: Neimenster, 28 Rue Münster, L-2160 Luxembourg

An art gallery under blue, sunny skies in Luxembourg City's historic Grund district? Yep, it's possible! Konscht am Gronn is an atmospheric art exhibition that brings people from all over the country to the city. Over 30 international artists promote their work on the famous bridge crossing the Alzette river. Have a stroll and a spontaneous look, and maybe consider a purchase if you like what you see and want to support creative minds in these times.

For the Minett Park's traditional open day, the unique locomotive is always in the spotlight.

6. Apero jazz on Sunday with Tu danses? Trio

What: Homage to John Coltrane
Where: Neimenster, 28 Rue Münster, L-2160 Luxembourg
When: Sunday, 5 September at 11am - info here

For their fourth album "Songs of Praise" the trio Tu danses?, composed of Jean-Marc Baccarini on saxophones, Philippe Canovas on guitar and Christian Mariotto on drums, pays homage to the music of John Coltrane, a major influence for this atypical formation. Together the three musicians have developed a strong musical identity, expressing themes of master Coltrane, mixing them with their own styles.

7. Learn about the printing press

What: Expo Gutenberg
Where: Kulturhuef, 54 route de Treves, L-6793 Grevenmacher
When: Tuesday - Sunday between 2pm-6pm - info here

Head over to the Kulturhuef museum in Grevenmacher this Sunday for a guided tour of the printing press museum. The exhibition, which is laid out over two floors, presents the history of book printing in a clear and understandable manner. The museum also draws a parallel between the effects of the invention of the printing press and today's digitalisation. Both represent revolutionary turning points in society.
