Rock am Ring 2022 - The cult festival is back
Hi and welcome to Lila's review!
"Only with the fans does Rock am Ring become Rock am Ring".
One of the most traditional cult festivals in Germany finally returns after Corona break and welcomes thousands of fans of metal and rock music on the first weekend in June from 03 - 05 June. With a line-up that puts a big smile on your face when you read through it, the double festival (Rock am Ring and Rock im Park) makes up for the time lost due to the Corona pandemic. My Immortals, our insights into the event of the year 2022.
Since 1985 Rock am Ring offers a stage for national and international bands from various genres. Be it newcomers or stars from the history of the world, the festival has had them all and seems to have created a recipe for success with this combination, which attracts bands like Black Sabbath, Metallica or die Ärzte as well as artists like Jay-Z and David Bowie . At Rock am Ring , music history is written, told or carried on, which again gives up-and-coming artists the chance to realize themselves.
The festival with its very own character is an annual meeting place for thousands of visitors who have been attending the event again and again for decades. Rock am Ring grows with its base and puts the needs of the audience in the foreground. One of the things we appreciate about the event. With its sister festival Rock in the park , the all-round festival experience is complete and should definitely be visited by you when the opportunity arises.
Located at the Nürburgring in the Eifel, the festival will take place this year, again in the green. A change that there is this year nevertheless, is the organizer. In cooperation with eventimpresents at Rock am Ring and at Rock in the park with eventimpresents as well as ARGO Konzerte, the agency DreamHaus has made it its business to rebuild the double festival out of the pandemic and to revive the heart of rock culture in Germany. With a new design as well as a more targeted dialogue with the audience, the festival will be adapted to today's times.
On top of a new website, the rebuilding of their social media channels, and an in-house app to intensify the festival experience, the focus here will also be on the audience. Visitors are the core of the event and should once again have a say in what the festival will be like this year. To a more sustainable gastronomy also visitor voices are heard the disadvantages and discrimination on event should contain. The experience character of the festival is thus intensified by the organizers, unified and additionally embroidered with many different highlights.
Let's get to what you have surely been waiting for: the line-up. After 2020 and 2021 the festival could not take place due to the Corona pandemic and many were especially looking forward to headliners like Green Day and Volbeat , you can experience them this year at Rock am Ring . Besides well-known and popular bands like August Burns Red, Ice Nine Kills, A Day To Remember, Shinedown or The Pretty Reckless you can look forward to newcomers like Måneskin , who took the scene by storm with their victory at the ESC. There are also some pop artists like Alligatoah or Sportfreunde Stiller so there will be something for everyone. An overview of the line-up can be found here: Rock am Ring Line-Up.
One of the latest additions to the line-up are Placebo, who after a nine-year album break will make the stage shake with their new album „Never Let Me Go“ . An exciting act we are looking forward to and with eleven million albums sold, definitely worth seeing. Convince yourself and watch the music video for “Beautiful James” :
After two years of pandemic-related downtime, a demolition at the twin festival is already a done deal and should not be missed, especially by festival-goers like you.
