The opderschmelz cultural centre in Dudelange has announced that Luxembourg acts Benny & The Bugs and ROME are putting on concerts this week as part of the "Ënnert dem Waassertuerm" open-air festival.

Benny & The Bugs will be perfoming at opderschmelz on Wednesday 14 July 2021 at 20:00 (doors open at 19:00). Established on the Luxembourg folk scene for more than ten years now, Benny & The Bugs have already released three CDs: di Blo (2006), di Gréng (2008) and di Giel (2012).

As always, everything is in Luxembourgish with its original lyrics taken straight from real life. With classics such as "Schéine Bonjour", "Ökotut", "Chance mam Wieder" or "Sandweiler", the band has found its own way to captivate and entice its audience.

Pre-sale tickets cost €15 (plus fees); box office tickets cost €20. Free entry with Kulturpass. Further information is available at:

Luxembourg-born singer-songwriter Jerome Reuter, with his multilingual project ROME, will be perfoming alongside Dublin native Brian Brody at opderschmelz on Saturday 17 July 2021 at 20:00 (doors open at 19:00).

Jerome Reuter founded his multilingual project ROME (a derivative of his first name) in 2005 and has since created an impressive body of work that includes at least fifteen studio albums and numerous other official releases. ROME's "Dark Folk" is compelling, combining diverse musical influences ranging from post-punk to chanson. Lyrically, he draws inspiration from world literature. His detailed, well-researched and yet accessible conceptual albums convincingly demonstrate his interest in history, philosophy and art. What is inherent in all of ROME's work, however, is Reuter's love of being an outsider. 

For over 20 years, Brian Brody has become a fixture at home and abroad. In his home city of Dublin (Ireland), Brian has been hailed as "one of Dublin's best-loved entertainers" [Evening Herald] and has won awards for his performances and contribution to Irish tourism.

Pre-sale tickets cost €20; box office tickets cost €25. Free entry with Kulturpass. Further information is available at:

In addition, the Harmonie Municipale Dudelange will be playing in front of an audience again, under the direction of Sascha Leufgen, on Friday 16 July 2021 at 20:00 (doors open at 19:00). In light of the health situation, they will perform with a reduced set. Free entry. Further details are available at:
