Nürburgring is located with in the region of Rheinland-Pfalz, which shares borders with Belgium, France, and Luxembourg. Our readers in Austria, the Czech Republic, and Switzerland may want to check out the sister-concert Rockavaria, which is taking place in Bavaria on the same weekend, if the trek to Grüne Hölle Rock seems a bit too far.
So, what can those fans expect?
Well, despite a change in the event promoter, Nuerburgring.de is promising, “[t]hree days of rock music at its finest on three stages, mud-slinging and party atmosphere on the numerous tent and caravan pitches as well as the unique festival atmosphere at the Nürburgring.”
