The World Day and European Day of Organ Donation centerpiece was the open air concert at Brandenburg Gate with performers John Lee's Barclay James Harvest, Karat, Jeannette & Band, Stanfour and Markus & die NDW Revue. The concert was interspersed with short public service announcements and video statements by transplant experts and heart warming stories by transplant recipients and donor families. Huge walk-in organs along with information tables on organ donation were also present at the festival.
