The Step into German music contest is designed to bring the German music scene to all of you across the US, Canada and Central America.

We are planning on kicking off the contest in the spring of 2021. Please bear with us until we know to what extent the competition will be affected by COVID-19. Stay tuned for updates!

“Wherever you are, there should be music…” – Step into German with Wincent Weiss

We had a great Wincent Weiss music contest with lots of videos from all over North-America and voters from all over the world! We were amazed by all the inspiring and creative videos you sent us! The choice wasn’t easy but we hope you had fun making your videos and watching the other contestents’ submissions.

Thank you to all of you who participated and the many votes on our Step into German website and the Step into German Facebook page!!
