After the last two summers passed without festivals, it's finally starting again. Rock am Ring will return from June 3rd to 5th. Thanks to RTL, those who cannot be there live will have the chance to follow the event on TV at home.
For the past two summers, music fans of all genres have had to do without events of almost any type and size due to the corona pandemic. But now it's finally time to really get going again, and traditionally the first weekend in June is the legendary Rock am Ring. Those who cannot be present at the Nürburgring for this purpose now at least have the chance to follow the whole thing live on the television screen or their computer monitor.
Together with CTS Eventim, RTL is bringing the three-day festival to the living rooms of all rock music-loving viewers. From June 3rd to 5th, the spectacle will be broadcast free of charge and freely accessible in the web browser on RTLplus.de and via the app for RTL Premium users. Bands like Green Day, Muse, Volbeat, Placebo, Måneskin, Marteria, Beatsteaks and Jan Delay will be there in this historic year
"We are very pleased to have gained a new name and a fantastic media partner in RTL. After a forced two-year break, this edition of Rock am Ring is something very special. It's great to be able to share this experience with many more people now," according to Dr. Frithjof Pils, Managing Director of Eventim Live, in a statement published by RTL. Frauke Neeb, RTL program director, is also happy about this cooperation. Because Rock am Ring is just the beginning, as RTL wants to provide an extensive range of music for streaming in the future.
Music fans from all over the world have been making pilgrimages to the Nürburgring for Rock am Ring since 1985, and in 1997 Rock im Park was added. Over the decades, David Bowie, The Bangles, Alanis Morissette, The Fugees, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against The Machine, Metallica and Die Toten Hosen have played there, among others.
