With newly founded Vaddi Concerts GmbH, a fully owned subsidiary of Medusa, a new powerful promoter in the Freiburg area will be established.

Managing Director of Vaddi Concerts will be Marc Oßwald, a known face in the German mu-sic business and deeply rooted in South Germany. Oßwald became known through his activi-ty as manager and promoter of Dieter Thomas Kuhn & Band and he has managed KOKO & DTK Entertainment GmbH’s affairs since 2001 and led the “Zelt Musik Festival” in Freiburg since 2007. Aside from Oßwald, second Managing Director will be Dr. Frithjof Pils.

In addition to the loca-tion in Freiburg a second office is planned to open in Tuebingen in September 2017.

Marc Oßwald is full of anticipation and drive: „I’m looking forward to the new challenge as a part of the CTS EVENTIM-group! We will build a strong team which will ultimately benefit the whole region.”

Dr. Frithjof Pils: „We are happy to have won, with Marc Oswald, another outstanding promot-er personality for our activities. His experience and network will help us to quickly develop Vaddi Concerts into a major force in the south-west German live event scene.“
