Oktoberfest is held annually in Munich, and more than six million people from around the world attend the event every year.

The Clintons' Oktoberfest appearance came just days after Tuesday's announcement that Hillary has teamed up with director Steven Spielberg to work on a series about the struggle to get the 19th amendment passed in Tennessee.

While attending the Atlantic Events Festival, Hillary revealed how reading journalist Elaine Weiss' book 'The Woman's Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote' sparked the idea for a miniseries.

She then pitched the idea to Spielberg who said he loved the proposal.

Following Hillary's run for president in 2016, the couple has dabbled in a variety of projects and events while enjoying their time away from the political limelight.

They enjoyed a date night in New York City at Christina Aguilera's concert at Radio City Music Hall on Wednesday before jetting off to Germany.

The former first couple were seen chatting with fans and posing for photographs while enjoying the concert with Hillary's former campaign aide Huma Abedin.

During the show, Aguilera, 37, was joined onstage by special guest Lil' Kim, 44, for a rare performance of their 2001 hit cover Lady Marmalade.

Huma wore a black Lingua Franca sweater with 'November is coming' written in white across the front — a reference to the upcoming mid-term elections.

Pictures posted on social media show the trio smiling as they pose with fans and take selfies of the auditorium.

As the couple entered the auditorium, crowds of people cheered and clapped. They sat among the rest of the fans for the sold out gig.

One Instagram user who was sitting near the trio posted a picture with the caption: 'I’M SITTING RIGHT NEAR HILLARY AND BILL!!!!! @hillaryclinton #hillaryclinton #president #concert #ohmygod.'

Aguilera's Liberation Tour is her first concert tour in a decade.

The Clintons are believed to be close friends with the pop star, who has performed at various events for them over the years.

Aguilera even hosted a fundraiser when Hillary was campaigning to become president in 2015.

At the star-studded event, the singer performed for the guests who paid as much as $10,000 for four tickets.
