Get ready Europe, a new festival is happening next year! Rockavaria will take place from the 29th to the 31st of May 2015 in Munich, Germany.
Following in the tradition of Wacken Open Air and Rock am Ring, Rockavaria is another festival that will bring together a lineup of well-known international rock bands bands with rock music fans from across Germany, neighboring European countries, and many other locations.
Rockavaria is taking place in the southern German state of Bavaria, which shares borders with Austria, the Czech Republic, and Switzerland. Our readers in Belgium, France, and Luxembourg may want to check out the northern sister-concert Grüne Hölle Rock, which is taking place in Nürburg on the same weekend.
Tickets are on sale now at an ‘early bird’ price of 169 Euros, which includes admission for all three days of the festival. Unlike, Grüne Hölle Rock, camping at Rockavaria’s host site of OlympiaPark in Munich is forbidden.
The 2015 festival will be headlined by a series of well-known American rock and metal bands, including Incubus, Faith No More, and Five Finger Death Punch, Anti-Flag, and Testament. Additionally, Metallica and KISS – two of the beloved classic metal bands with huge international followings – will be performing. And, the headlining list also features several well-known European bands; including, England’s Muse, who confirmed via Twitter that they are working on their seventh studio album with legendary producer Mutt Lange; Norway’s Turbonegro, who are touring behind their 2012 album Sexual Harassment; and, German metal band Accept, who – after a series of hiatuses over the years since their formation in 1968 – are touring in support of their 2014 album, Blind Rage, that reached Number 1 on the charts in their home country.
Additionally, there will be performances by Any Given Day, Arcane Roots, Emmure, Exodus, Hang the Bastard, Kissin’ Dynamite, Orchid, Poets of the Fall, The Darkness, and The Picturebooks, with more to be announced.
