Originally it was meant to be a one-off. Back in 1985 some of the greatest acts of their era – including U2, Chris de Burgh and Marius Müller-Westernhagen – performed at the Nürburgring, the Formula 1 racetrack in the Eifel hills of Rhineland-Palatinate.
Today, Rock am Ring is the classic among Germany's open-air rock festivals. You only have to look at the visitor figures and the list of artists who have graced the stage here over the years to see what a phenomenally successful festival this is. With names like David Bowie, Bryan Adams, Supertramp, Metallica, Marilyn Manson and Gossip, it reads like a who's who of rock music.
