1Live Krone 2016 – the catering stole the show!

As well as countless celebs from the music industry, Germany’s 1Live radio network secured a real catering star for its glitzy 1Live Krone music awards on 1 December. Today, we dish the goss on who was there and what they ate!

Singers, celebrities and a whole lotta music! On December 1, the 17th 1Live Krone awards ceremony was held in Bochum’s historical Jahrhunderthalle. Every year, Germany’s biggest radio awards are presented to exceptional artists in eight different categories. But this year, aside from the prestigious accolades, there was something else everybody wanted to get their hands on – our Vapiano catering! 


The winning musicians were announced over the course of the evening. Hip-hop group K.I.Z. took the award for Best Live Act, the 257ers were voted Best Band and Clueso was named Best Artist. Julien Bam took home the prize for Best Video, and Luke Mockridge was thrilled to receive the crown for Best Comedian. Presenter Jürgen Domian was also honoured with a Lifetime Achievement award.

The party’s culinary highlights 


An exclusive after show party followed the 1Live Krone awards ceremony with big names like Daniela Katzenberger, Hans Sarpei and Lena Meyer-Landrut spotted among the crowds. Some 1200 hungry guests tucked into a mouth-watering spread of pasta, pizza and salad. And the stars didn’t hold back either! Singer-songwriter Max Giesinger admitted he was a huge Vapiano fan. “I had a kebab before I came, but that didn’t stop me from hitting the buffet. I’ve had some pizza and some pasta – it’s too good not to!” 


And there was one person who, despite not being honoured, looked just as chuffed as the winners: our CEO Jochen Halfmann. “Naturally I was a little nervous, but the team was brilliant so I knew everything was going to be fine. And I think the guests were happy too. They loved the food and our Vapianisti acted as excellent brand ambassadors tonight.”


Guests partied and dined into the early hours of the morning and the feedback was unanimous. As well as being a fabulous evening for the celebrities, it had been a fantastic event for our Vapiano team too!
