MUSIC FESTIVALS IN GERMANY IN 2016: PART 1 [Infographic] by the team at Wimdu

1st – May 1st

The 1st May in Berlin is more than just a music festival. Held on ‘International Worker’s Day’, it has its roots as a celebration of labourers and the working-classes. But this being Berlin, the day has become synonymous with an all-out, free-for-all street party. Raves pop-up everywhere alongside the protests, and of course, last well into the next day…

13th – 15th – Rock Hard

Taking place over the Whitsunday weekend in Gelsenkirchen Amphitheater is the infamous Rock Hard festival. Considering the lineup, which includes legendary bands such as Blind Guardian, Sodom and metal Church, the 3-day ticket is a bargain at €85.

13th – 16th – Immergut Festival

Immergut Festival is one of the most important indie-rock festivals in Germany and takes place this year in beautiful Neustrelitz, in the heart of the Mecklenburger Seenplatte countryside. Don’t miss the opening party at the Landestheater Neustrelitz on 26th May, one day before the official start of the festival.
