Founded in 2000, the NEWCOMERSHOW has established an exciting entry into the prestigious world of German Variety and has become Germany's most prestigious Variety festival.

For intense days of rehearsals and four brilliant evenings of performance, rising artists from all over the world meet at Krystallpalast Varieté in Leipzig to share passion, dedication and inspiration. We offer performers of any age a chance to show their talent. It is regulary attended by more than 70 agents, bookers and artistic directors.

After the Award ceremony on the last show day, all the artists and professionals are invited to a meet and greet to make contacts and contracts.




The NEWCOMERSHOW 2023 is sponsored by the Cultural Office of the City of Leipzig/Kulturamt Stadt Leipzig.
