Germany's 14th annual Echo Awards will take place April 2, 2005, at Berlin's Hotel Estrel. In recent years, the event has been held in the city's larger International Congress Center.

The Echo Awards are organized by the German Phonographic Academy. Sources close to the Academy say the decision to relocate to the smaller venue is based on cost-cutting factors and an ambition to host a more intimate event.

TV network RTL will broadcast the show.
