2020 Wacken Open Air, Rock am Ring, & Rock im Park Festivals Cancelled

The 2020 Wacken Open Air, Rock am Ring, and Rock im Park festivals have all been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. This news comes as Germany decided to extend restrictions on public gatherings until the end of August.

The Wacken organizers said the following:

“Dear Metalheads,

yesterday, the German government decided that due to the Coronavirus pandemic, no mass gatherings will be allowed until August, 31st 2020. We are facing an unprecented situation in our 30 years: It is with heavy hearts that we have to announce that there will be no Wacken Open Air this year.

Our whole team has been working intensively on the festival these last months and the more all of us are bitterly disappointed that we are not allowed to celebrate a Wacken Open Air with you. This administrative order affects us heavily and we will need some time to process the bad news.

Nevertheless, we support the decision of the German government in this difficult situation for the whole world. Your health and safety have always been and always will be our top priority. We as promoters are therefore bound to take an even greater responsibility and have to follow the instructions of the experts.

Concerning Wacken Open Air 2021 and options for your already bought tickets we will reach out to you asap but ask for a little bit of patience whilst we work through this. We thank you for your trust during times which are unparalleled for all of us.

Stay healthy – In Metal We Trust!

Your W:O:A Team”

The Rock am Ring and Rock im Park organizers also commented:

“Sold-out Ring and Park festivals cancelled due to ban on large-scale events until 31 August

In their eventful history, Germany’s most popular open-air festivals, Rock am Ring and Rock im Park, have been confronted with unexpected and difficult situations on more than one occasion. The ban on all large-scale events until 31 August due to the Corona pandemic has now forced the cancellation of the anniversary events at the Nürburgring and in Nuremberg.

This inevitable decision is naturally diappointing for the organisers and their teams, the artists and 175,000 fans who had wanted to celebrate 35 years of Rock am Ring and 25 years of Rock im Park on the first weekend of June.

Yet as sad as the cancellation of the sold-out twin festivals is, the producers fully understand the need for this unavoidable measure, which is being taken in the interests of the health and safety of all those involved. At the same time, they wish to expressly thank the fans for their ongoing support.

The hopes of everyone in the live-music business are now focused on an end to the state of emergency. The anniversary Rock am Ring and Rock im Park festivals have now been rescheduled for the second weekend of June 2021.

All ticket buyers are asked to remain patient regarding further details. The organisers and their teams are working on specific information concerning the exact course of action, and this will be announced next. Until then, the understanding of fans is requested.

Rock am Ring – Rock im Park
11 – 13 June 2021
Save the date!”

2017 Rock am Ring Festival Evacuated Over Terrorist Threat

UPDATE June 3: The Rock am Ring festival went on as planned today with festival organizers saying the following (translated from German):

“These are the news we all have been waiting for:

Rock am Ring 2017 will go on! After intensive searches and sweeps of the complete festival site by the police the suspicion of a potential terrorist threat has not been confirmed.

Set up for day 2 of Rock am Ring has commenced and the program is going to be resumed in the early afternoon. The incredibly disciplined fans deserve all our respect and gratitude.
We keep you posted.”

Original Story:

The 2017 Rock am Ring festival in Nürburgring in Nürburg, Germany has been evacuated over an apparent “terror threat”. You can see statements from the local police department and festival organizers below (translated from German).

Police Department:

“The organizer of Rock am Ring has terminated today’s festive day in close coordination with the security forces. The background is concrete evidence, which can not be excluded from a possible terrorist threat. Investigations are currently underway. We can not give exact background information at this time.

As safety is paramount, and it is necessary to exclude a threat to festival visitors in any case as far as possible, it was decided to suspend the festival for this day.

With regard to the latest attack on a concert in Manchester, the security concept for Rock am Ring was modified in advance and the number of the operational forces increased significantly to around 1,200.

We take all references and all suspicious moments very seriously and follow them intensively.

After a threat could not be ruled out, all necessary measures were taken immediately.

This led to the event being interrupted today for security reasons.”

Festival Organizers:

“Due to a terrorist threat the police have advised us to interrupt the festival.

We ask all festival visitors to leave the festival site in a calm and controlled manner towards the exits and camping grounds.
We have to support the police investigations.

All visitors will be kept informed about any developments on all Rock am Ring Social Media channels, radio and the speakers.
We hope that the festival will continue tomorrow. Thank you for your cooperation.”
