Turbo Booking is a DIY booking agency based in Cologne.
I want to give the awesome bands in my roster a chance to play in Europe and give music lovers the chance to enjoy them live. I work with well known artists but also new bands which have no chance to tour Europe without help.
It’s very important for me that the shows are a great experience for all involved, for the organizers, the bands and the people who go and see the shows.
As Turbo Booking is a one-woman-agency I cannot take many bands into my roster. Here you can find more info about band applications.
After the tours are booked, I promote them together with the local promoters and the bands.
I provide the promoters with all necessary promotion material and always try to think of new ways to promote a tour.
I design posters and ads for fanzines and magazines with the artists’ artwork. I advice bands about promotion and build websites (like this one).
Turbo Booking has it’s own tour vans! “Robbie” and “Rudy” are long Mercedes Sprinters with 8 or 9 seats and lots of space for equipment.
I can also connect you to backline rentals.
If bands need an overnight stay on a day off or before picking up or after returning the van, I know the right place: Two band rooms in an old farm house located in Bonn (near Cologne) with a big courtyard, a safe parking space for the van, washing machine etc.
