In the Café Central in Weinheim near Mannheim, a program is offered that could be seen in every metropolis, and it plays both regional sizes and newcomers, as well as internationally hip acts an essential role.

The program mainly focuses on punk and rock, but reggae and hip-hop also come to the train in the 300-person club.

A permanent institution is the annual Newcomerfestival. Meanwhile, the affiliated Tocopilla Eventschmiede has made a name as a major organizer, if it is too narrow in the cafe.

Im Café Central in Weinheim nahe Mannheim wird ein Programm geboten, dass sich in jeder Millionenstadt sehen lassen könnte, und dabei spielen sowohl regionale Größen und Newcomer als auch international angesagte Acts eine wesentliche Rolle.

Schwerpunktmäßig bewegt sich das Programm im Punk- und Rock-Bereich, aber auch Reggae und HipHop kommen zum Zug im 300 Personen fassenden Club.

Eine feste Institution ist das jährlich stattfindende Newcomerfestival. Mittlerweile hat sich die angegliederte Tocopilla Eventschmiede auch einen Namen als Großveranstalter gemacht, wenn es im Cafe zu eng wird.
