Munich (dpa / lby) - only brass band music at the Oktoberfest? Apparently that's no longer enough for some Wiesn visitors. After complaints, the Bräurosl marquee hired a new band for the evening program instead of a brass band. Parts of the audience "don't get along very well with the traditional music," Andreas Steinfatt, managing director of the Hacker-Pschorr brewery, justified the decision on Wednesday. Several media had previously reported on the criticism of the chapel.
During the day, the brass band led by Josef Menzl was allowed to continue playing, said Steinfatt. From 8 p.m. at the latest, the band will be replaced by music from the band Erwin und die Heckflossen from Regensburg, who, according to their own statements, also have rock, pop and hits in their repertoire.
