Germany’s answer to the heavy rock music festival is Rock Am Ring. Set to be one of the most popular European rock festivals, Rock Im Park takes place in Nuremberg and has been headlined by the most famous international rock acts since 1985. Black shirts and metal meet at the Nürburgring Grand Prix Grounds in Nürburg in Rhineland Germany.
The festival itself has cemented in history for many reasons, including creating a science experiment in 2007 where it tested the effects of mass bodies of people jumping simultaneously.
Combined with its sister festival Rock im Park, 150,000 punters attend yearly, making it one of the largest music events in the world. Already announced to play in this year’s showdown are Slipknot, Die Antwood, Alice in Chains and Foals. Held at Zeppelinfeld, the festival has seen such legends of rock like David Bowie, Eddie Van Halen, Guns n Roses, Metallica, Rage Against the Machine, and Foo Fighters perform here.
