Nils Frahm is a German classical and electronic musician and producer from Hamburg, now based in Berlin.
He released his debut album, ‘Streichelfisch’, in 2005, but it was his fifth release, ‘Felt’, that gained him widespread acclaim. He released his last album, ‘Solo’, in 2015 and a collaborative release, ‘Trance Frendz’ with Ólafur Arnalds in 2016. He has also worked on film and theatre soundtracks, including the music for ‘Victoria’.
After touring the world in early 2018, he released a surprise EP in June, which is followed by dates in Australia, Europe, and two huge London shows in December. He then heads to the US for a 2019 tour. Catch him live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.

When German minimalist composer Nils Frahm first emerged in the mid-2000s, he was often lumped in the same category as modern classical pianists Olafur Arnalds and Ludovico Einaudi. While such comparisons did him no disservice – both musicians are wildly gifted – Frahm’s penchant for drum machines and glitchy production betrayed his more left-field ambitions.
