"Welcome home": Rock am Ring back at the Nürburgring
Rock am Ring returns to its birthplace. From 2 to 4 June 2017, Germany's most popular open-air festival will take place at the Nürburgring again. In the year of the 90th birthday of the racetrack the legends of Rock am Ring history "Die Toten Hosen" will head back to "their living room", together with "Rammstein", "System of A Down" and many other bands.
In 1985 the first edition ever of "Rock am Ring" took place at the Nürburgring. Followed by many successful years, the last two editions of the festival no longer took place at the racetrack. After two years of absence, the Nürburgring and the organisers agreed on a return. "We are delighted to be able to regain a piece of Nürburgring history, which has thrilled the people here for three decades," explains Mirco Markfort, CEO of capricorn NÜRBURGRING GmbH. "We are waiting for a great double anniversary: 90 years of Nürburgring and Rock am Ring for the 30th time at the Nürburgring."
