1999 Christian Walter Burr started a concert agency which has been renamed to Hotellounge in 2003, named after a song of the band dEUS. Years went by and the agency got a bit bigger focussing on European Tours. Hotellounge is acting as European agent for several acts and a national promoter in Germany & Switzerland. They are running offices in Germany and Switzerland.

The concert agency also organizes local shows in and around Saarbrücken. Hotellounge is representing Neurosis, Hidden Orchestra, The Sonics, Mudhoney, Seun Kuti & Egypt 80, Gemma Ray, Group Listening, XIXA, Tahiti 80… just to name a few.

HOTELLOUNGE started in 2019 their own boutique festival – HEMMERSDORF POP Festival.
