Festival in Spreeauenpark: Energie Cottbus fans celebrate with Alexander Knabe, FCE professionals and a special ‘energy star’


Energie Cottbus fans can look forward to a big two-day festival all about their favorite club this weekend. Singer Alexander Knabe and the Lausitzer Rundschau band held the “Love Knows No League” festival for the second time.

At Spreeauenpark it gathers all the people who grew up fond of FCE. “The open air is a football and family fest, a cheerleader and theme park, a concert and festival,” describes Knappe, who has been a loyal fan of Energie for many years. The first course was attended by more than 4,000 people in 2019.


The Energie Cottbus is the biggest winner at this festival – a large portion of ticket income goes to the association. There are also other charitable events.

It must get really emotional when Alexander Knabe picks up the microphone himself. Born in Guppener, he now sings to sold-out halls all over Germany – he always thought of Lausitz. When he sings the FCE anthem “We’ll Be Back Tomorrow”, he touches the hearts of thousands of football fans in his home country.

Culture in the festival of love does not know the league

On Sunday, the public at the Spreeauenpark will witness the cultural highlight. A very special brass band goes on stage under the title “Mozart Meets Disney”. After a three-year break, 45 young music-crazed young adults, adult students, teachers and alumni of the Cottbus Conservatory of Music once again play fireworks of film and music in Cottbus’ cultural and concert paradise. With many well-known songs and interesting and funny stories about music, they want to inspire and surprise energy lovers.

Charity Campaign at the Festival “Love Doesn’t Know the League”

As part of the “Love Doesn’t Know League” festival, the Energy Star will be auctioned off – a two-wheeler bike, keep in mind. A 1969 “Simson Star” (SR4) was restored and repainted. All money sold by auction goes to the youth division of FC Energie.

A pop art painting by Martin Schuller, who painted the mascot of FCE Lauzi in his own way, will also be auctioned off. The T-shirt for the festival is already sold out. But there are still thousands of drinking glasses bearing the festival’s logo – and that income benefits the association as well.
