EURO 2024: The Guide for Live Music, Football, and Parties During the Group Stage

The combination of live music and football is the best thing humanity can have. That's why it's our duty to update you on everything happening during Germany's 2024 EURO, including some great live music.
UEFA Euro 2024

UEFA EURO 2024 has started and the first round of the group stage is already over, and once again, we're here to bring you live music updates right on time! You know that where there's football, there's a party, and that means lots of live music and events! If you're in Germany for the next four weeks, follow this guide and don't miss a thing, and as Steven Tyler from Aerosmith says, "I Don't Wanna Miss a Thing."

EURO 2024 is Germany's first big tournament as hosts since the 2006 FIFA World Cup. Matches are happening in ten cities, including the capital, Berlin.

In this year’s edition of the tournament, the games will take place in 10 different stadiums and venues across Germany, Frankfurt Arena; Arena AufSchalke; Munich Football Arena; Leipzig Stadium; Düsseldorf Arena; Berlin Olympiastadion; Cologne Stadium; BVB Stadion Dortmund; Hamburg Volksparkstadion and Stuttgart Arena.

First of all, let’s make a quick recap of what happened so far:

As hosts of Euro 2024, Germany dominated the opening match. With goals from Wirtz, Musiala, Havertz, Füllkrug, and Can, the German team crushed Scotland in Munich, winning 5-1. So far, it’s the highest-scoring game of this European tournament edition.

Mbappé caused concern for France in their Euro debut. In the final minutes of their 1-0 win against Austria in Düsseldorf, the striker collided with defender Danso's shoulder, resulting in significant nose bleeding. The former PSG, and newly signed Real Madrid star was substituted and went straight to the locker room. Mbappé's fracture was confirmed, but surgery is unlikely. On the same day, the number 10 joked on social media, asking for suggestions for masks to wear for the rest of Euro 2024.

This year's Euro Cup started with a flurry of own goals. In total, there were three own-goals scored in the first round of the competition: Rüdiger - Germany 5 x 1 Scotland; Wöber - Austria 0 x 1 France; and Hranác - Portugal 2 x 1 Czech Republic.

This article covers the second and third rounds of the group stage, but the real excitement comes later. Stay tuned to our website for more articles throughout EURO 2024. We'll bring you the best info on football and live music—the perfect combination, right?
