Soundtrack 17 Hippies


A documentary on historical breweries in Prenzlauer-Berg features our music and an Interview with Christopher … Have a look on ARD-Mediathek. It's well worth more than a short look. Great footage of historical Berlin!

We'll be back!

17 Hippies live

Tickets for our concerts late December 2021 now on sale … HERE.

When will we see you again?

LIVE CONCERTS: Are we playing, aren’t we playing? We’ve now been asked so many times … The fact is … we’re not. We haven’t played together for a year and a half. For one (and for now) we are too many to even rehearse in the same room, or drive to gigs, or hang out backstage together - our usual routine is simply irresponsible.
For another … we will be back on the road, as soon as we’re all vaccinated. We are also working on a way to find a way to play live concerts the way live-concerts should be played … live and with you around!
We hope our HIPPIE-HAUS-DANCES in December will happen - we’ll still don’t know until autumn. The same goes for our „25 year jubliee tour" planned for Jan/Feb 2022.
Until we do know … thank you all for your support. It feels strange not to see you at concerts. Stay safe, we’ll be back!

NEW ALBUM: With our tours grinding to a halt, we spent our time creating a breathtaking new album. For one it’s our tribute to 25 years of 17 Hippies music, full of favorite tunes and grooves, with unexpected turns, sometimes subtle and sometimes … huge!
But this album is more! Diving headfirst into an ocean of digital possibilities, it’s a multi dimensional and uniquely new experience for your ears! We explore new dimensions with an album in an app, specially developed for the occasion!
The album will be released later this year. Yes, on an app! And of course the music will also be streamed, and rleleased on good old CD, and LP.
Stay tuned for more news. We’ll keep you posted.
