Every 2 years, BinG! (Barbershop In Germany) organizes a music festival with more than 5.000 people attending. This three day event is the highlight of any Barbershopper's calendar and a must for every a cappella fan.

Singers from all over Germany come together to sing at the highest level, to have fun and to connect and network. The main events are the German quartet and chorus contests, where male, female and mixed national groups compete, as well as the World Mixed championships where the quartet championships premiered in 2012. In 2018 the first ever World Mixed chorus championships are being held.

However, the climax of the festival is the "Show of the Champions", with champion choruses and quartets from various countries as well as performances by top international ensembles. Here, German and international barbershop ensembles present the whole spectrum of their singing style, female, male and mixed barbershop performed at the highest level!

The next Barbershop Musikfestival takes place April 06-08, 2018 in Munich at the Gasteig Philharmonie.
