Rock am Ring has officially returned to the Nürburgring, leaving Mendig’s Flugplatz after two weather-stricken editions.
The announcement comes after the festival was cut off prematurely this summer due to terrible weather conditions that culminated in nearly 100 people being taken to hospital.
In a lengthy Facebook post, the festival confirmed that conditions in Mendig were no longer to a point of agreement, with many new restrictions having been put in place following the previous two editions. Check out the full statement (in German) below.
Rock am Ring takes place from 2-4 June 2017, with headline sets from Die Toten Hosen, System of a Down and Rammstein. Click here for more information.
