    Am wondering if anyone has taken a tour to Hamm in germany and whether its worth a trip. There looks to be some good venues and the town is close to a useful airport but I cant seem to find contact for local bands. I wanted to contact someone out there to see what the opportunities would be like to take a band there for say 3/4 days next summer.
    If anyone has any thoughts I would be really grateful

    Hi there,
    Hamm? Are you sure?

    Here are the websites of two local bands:

    And plenty more where they came from.

    Does it really have to be this part of Germany? If you go further to the East or South you will find very nice venues and councils that are much easier to approach.

    I spend about 5 years driving past Hamm and since the atomic power plant was taken down there isn't really anything to write home about there.

    Search Google for "Westerwald"(right side) or "Neuenahr-Ahrweiler"(left side of the Rhine) or Remagen or Linz.
    They have top venues, band stands, festivals in that region, also called "Rheinland-Pfalz".

    Believe me, Hamm is Westfalen, nobody really wants to go there or live there.
