Rock Im Park is übercool

Here’s a question. If you had the chance to travel back to the 2000s and sit in a dusty car with your mates, while listening to a scratched CD of your favourite rock band – that one magical manoeuvre, which made the CD finally work, making the whole experience that much more exciting – would you take it? Well, I’m afraid, they haven’t just invented time machines yet. So this is not an offering for the latter. However, there is something as compelling at stake. A nostalgic turnaround of those rock-riffed melodies is just about to be delivered on stage within one of Germany’s historical landmarks (Zeppelinfeld in Nuremberg). Rock Im Park festival awaits patiently around the corner.

Flurrying from the 2nd – 4th June. The rock propensity, which has been meaning to feed off of the loud density of this powerful music, is almost visible – having only a few good nights left before the first strums rattle all of our aficionados’ ears. A metal, punk, hip hop, electronic, alternative (you get the gist of it) and rock haven are to be delivered by big names like the Foo Fighters, Papa Roach, Limp Bizkit, the heavy-witted Tenacious D, Architects, the renowned Kings Of Leon, Germany’s own Die Toten Hosen, alongside many other headbanger legends.

I might’ve given the illusion that the festival only holds its nostalgic musical traits. Forgive me, for the event, is also to host more recent and soil-shifting sounds to be found in today’s emerging scenery. Such as The Chats, Turnstile, Nothing But Thieves, Nova Twins, Boy Bleach, and many more. A burning energy fuelled by a musically international understanding and a common objective. To peacefully have a mad couple of days.
