Manufactur was nice place for a concert. It can comfortably fit more than you would think from the looks of it. The capacity is 350. Although we arrived late in the afternoon for the evening performance, and left right away after the show, I do have some clear memories...
The people running the place and the employees were extremely friendly and accomodating. The sound and lights systems were very good. The audience was enthusiastic. They have several mirror balls around the room and they're not afraid to use them :-). There's an additional bar in the building, away from the bands. On the negative side, the place was extremely smokey, enough to really irritate my eyes.
I wish I had more tips on Schondorf. Actually, I didn't even see enough of it to decide whether I would want to return. Sometimes that's how it is while on tour but at least I did get to have a good show and meet some nice people. If I find more pictures, I'll post them in a travelogue.
Dress Code: Whatever.
