For over forty years now, long before the current wave of talent shows began, "Linus Talentprobe" was already a giant talent show where candidates subjected themselves to the audience's vote. It's a mythical and festive show you can see in Cologne and nowhere else during the summer.

A karaoke where the audience is king

Have you ever wished you could give your opinion about the performances of karaoke singers? Don't wait and reserve a Thalys for Cologne now for one of the "Linus Talentprobe" weekends. To understand this unique show, think of a giant open-air karaoke where the audience is part of the show.
Festive rituals Each audience and jury member gets a "top" and a "flop" card and a whistle and they are asked to give the performers their opinion. They may even turn their backs on them - the ultimate punishment. The audience is uncompromising and excited and it hands out passes and fails to select the most promising talents who will end up in the finals. Emotion, laughter, admiration…the supercharged atmosphere lasts for hours after the show under the Tanzbrunnen big top. Dates and prices: Show price €13 Show + evening (aftershow party): €19 Linus Talentprobe: 8 pm Aftershow Party (additional): 10 pm 05.09.2014 (open air) 31.10.2014 (Halloween/ finale) in the theatre

I'm a translator and editor for several publications and I love the hidden side of the city, its secret gardens, its discrete gourmet restaurants and its new, high-design spots. Outings with my friends end late at night. My little extra: a dynamic, fun and really trendy Cologne!
