Milky Chance''s commitment matches the efforts of more and more event organizers, agents and suppliers to transform the event industry. Artist Relations Manager Stefan Lohmann, founder of the Sustainable Event Solutions platform and long-standing cooperation partner of the GSA: "Ecology and commercial music events are not a contradiction in terms if sustainability is taken seriously and implemented. Therefore it is important to understand the Corona crisis and the current standstill of the industry as an opportunity to use the economic stimulus packages of the Green Deal to make the event industry climate neutral for a sustainable new start in 2021. Only those who act sustainably are ready for the future. This makes role models like Milky Chance all the more important".

"With Milky Chance, we have globally successful protagonists of the music business on board as they took up the cause of sustainability in their industry. The band''s striving for an environmentally friendly tour design is exemplary," comments Stefan Schulze-Hausmann, initiator of the German Sustainability Award.

About Milky Chance - a green success story

Clemens Rehbein and Philipp Dausch founded the folktronica band Milky Chance In 2012. That year they also recorded the self-written song "Stolen Dance" and shared the video on Youtube. Generating several hundred thousand of views, the duo along with friends decided to create their own record company and released their debut album Sadnecessary in 2013. Right with the first song Milky Chance was able to reach an international audience.

From then on, the musicians played in sold-out halls worldwide, with particular success in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Their music, a special sound of acoustic rock, folk and electronic beats, has been awarded with various prizes, such as the Europe Border Breakers Award, the 1Live Krone or the Echo.

On December 3, 2020, they will now be rewarded with the German Sustainability Award. The band being aware of its social responsibility keeps an active involvement in many different projects. Since the beginning of their career, the band members have been working together with Viva con Agua on the goal of guaranteeing access to clean drinking water for all people worldwide.
