This year’s Prolight + Sound was opened festively with the PRG Live Entertainment Award (LEA) on April 9, 2018. This gave participants the opportunity to experience live acts, the fortunate winner, and important celebrities from the entertainment industry. The LEA has been presenting excellent event industry achievements in the DACH region.
LEA 2018 – full of impressive moments
This time around the audience enjoyed live performances from artists like Scooter, Michael Patrick Kelly and Wincent Weiß. But in addition to the entertainment program, the honoring of representatives also took some time, focusing on those who have decisively shaped the industry with their shows. Particularly touching with the honoring on the 91-year-old impresario and musician Georg Hörtnagel for his life work, regarding the concert direction in Munich and Bavaria – not just with the elderly musician. Helene Fischer and her manager Uwe Kanthak, in contrast, were very happy about their being awarded the “Arena Tour of the Day.” With over 1,400 guests from the fields of culture, science and politics, the Festhalle in Frankfurt was filled with prominent representatives who spent a wonderful gala evening under the motto “all you need is color.”
We are looking forward to seeing which highlights await us in 2019. To help us kill time until then, you can see a recording of the event. Here is the link to the event video.
