As the Baltic Blues e.V. has learned on Saturday, 29.07.2023, through an article in the Ostholsteiner Anzeiger, the marketplace is not available to the association for the implementation of the above event. Therefore, Baltic Blues e.V. is forced to cancel the event.
For more information, please refer to the following.
Based on an agreement between market vendors and the city of Eutin from the 1990s, it was regulated that the weekly market would be moved to BerlinerPlatz for the Blues Challenge (and 3 other events per year).
At the suggestion of Baltic Blues e.V., the Blues Challenge and the weekly market have been held together (half/half) on the market square for several years. Since 2020, there has been a legally binding written agreement on this.
Due to the construction work on the market place, the Blues Challenge, as well as the Bluesfest, was held once on the parking lot Segenhörn. The weekly market was held for about 1 year in the parking lot Berliner Platz.

22.June 2023 Mrs. Bloch (Chair Baltic Blues e.V.) has an appointment with Mayor Radestock (Bgm.) The occasion is a topic to the Bluesfest 2023, which was held in May.
At the end of the conversation the mayor mentions that there are problems with the cession of the market place for the Blues Challenge and suggests to switch to the Segenhörn. Ms. Bloch explained that if it can be done at all, there is a significant cost associated with it.
June 23, 2023 Mail from the city of Eutin (Mrs. Hilpert) with the request to send a site plan of the market place with the required (stand) areas to hold the Challenge. Deadline July 5. The plan will be transmitted already on June 25.
04 July 2023 The Bgm informs that the city of Eutin has no means to make half of the market place available to the association if the market vendors refuse. He refers to §69 GewO. He asks about the conditions under which the club would move to the Segenhörn. However, he had written to the market vendors once again, with the request to move out of the way.
July 10, 2023 Mail from Bgm. He informs that the market stallholders claim the market place for themselves. The Bgm.refers to a corresponding Letter from the market vendors suggesting the Segenhörn parking lot as a PERMANENT alternate site for the Challenge and asking for a
Statement of costs associated with a move, which he said he would present to the policy.
July 12, 2023 Mail from Ms. Bloch to the Mayor stating, among other things, that there is an agreement that must be honored. As well as that the Segenhörn is not feasible not only because of the cost, but also because for this area all our stand operators cancel. In addition, it is requested to participate in discussions with
to be involved in politics.
July 17, 2023 Mail from the mayor: “I will hopefully be able to clarify this evening whether and how we can provide you with a grant for the Segenhörn venue at short notice. If there is no solution, I will gladly invite you and Mr. Lüth to a joint discussion on Wednesday. It has been brought to my attention that the WVE has also reached an agreement with the market operators.
Want to have conversations.
July 19, 2023 The Bgm. has requested by telephone to this conversation. We (Mrs. Bloch/ Mr. Nickel) bring Mr. Winkler as representative of the Förderverein. Also present Mr. Kasch (City of Eutin). The BGm. informs that the vendors exist on the whole market place. The Bgm. explains in this context that the agreement is no longer legally valid in the opinion of the market operators and the city of Eutin. Mr. Nickel disagrees and asks the Bgm. twice
to hire a lawyer to conduct the examination. The Bgm. rejects twice.
Mr. Winkler offers to speak again with the market vendors as a representative of the sponsoring association. The Bgm. and the association welcome this.
Finally, Mr. Nickel asks whether the grant can also be used to cover the costs incurred by the association in the event of a cancellation. Mr. Kasch answers in the affirmative with reference to the ancillary costs. Ms. Bloch asked whether this also applied to rents. Mr. Kasch again answered in the affirmative.
July 22, 2023ff The sponsoring association talks to the feeders.
July 29, 2023 The Baltic Blues e.V. learns from an article in the Ostholsteiner Anzeiger that the city of Eutin does not provide the Baltic Blues e.V. with half of the market place. This inevitably leads to the cancellation of the event, as the association has neither the financial means to bear the minus resulting from a move to the Segenhörn, nor the fact that a music festival without gastronomic accompaniment is pointless. The interim report issued by Bgm. suggested move to the old (wind) mill is so grotesque (half of the marketplace in front of/into the mill?) that it is not discussed in detail.
