Bandpool-Act Provinz is among the winners of the 1LIVE Krone 2020

22. November 2020

In 2018 the folk-pop band Provinz was part of the 20th generation of the Bandpool, the top promotion programme of the Popakademie Baden-Württemberg.
Now the band around frontman and songwriter Vincent has received its first radio award: the 1LIVE Krone 2020 in the category "Best Newcomer Act".

The four band members from Ravensburg released their debut album "Wir bauten uns Amerika" on Warner Music in July this year. Within a week the album climbed to number 4 in the German album charts.

In spring 2021 Provinz will start their debut tour, which is already completely sold out.

"We are all totally overwhelmed", the band said in a first reaction after the current award.

The 1LIVE Krone has been awarded annually since 2000 by the radio station 1LIVE, which belongs to the WDR. With this award, 1LIVE honours musicians in seven categories after the previous voting of the fans. According to its own information, the 1LIVE crown is considered Germany's largest radio prize.
