In about two weeks the biggest twin festival with the most exclusive line-up in Germany starts and RTL Today will be there!

We are of course talking about none other than the 'Rock am Ring' and 'Rock im Park' festival that will be taking place simultaneously during the weekend of 2-4 June. Just like last year, over 70 bands will find their way back to Germany's most notorious festival.

2022 was a pretty special year when it came to festivals, because like so many others, RaR made their comeback as the corona measures disappeared and concert life returned. After a three-year drought, fans were finally able to make the pilgrimage to the festivals again. And for the first time ever, I found myself at the Nürburgring race track as well. You can read all about my experience here, but let me tell you beforehand: It was spectacular.

Needless to say that I am quite excited to go back this year. And I can't wait to take you all with me again. So what can you expect?
With the Foo Fighters around Dave Grohl, one of the most successful US rock bands of all time celebrates their return to Rock am Ring and Rock im Park, not only with their only European headline shows this year, the Foo Fighters will also release their brand new studio album, "But Here We Are", on Festival Friday.

In addition to the multi-platinum rock band, Saturday's headliners Kings Of Leon 2023 will not be seen at any other German festival, as well as Machine Gun Kelly and Turnstile, KOL will play exclusively at the Rocks.

One of the top-class line-ups in the history of the twin festival also presents heavyweights like Die Toten Hosen and the Berlin rap crew K.I.Z, nu-metal giants Limp Bizkit, the wonderful US comedy rock band Tenacious D with Hollywood star Jack Black, Apache 207, currently Germany's most successful rapper, as well as fan favourites and headliners like Rise Against, Incubus, Papa Roach, Arch Enemy, Bring Me The Horizon, Evanescence and many more.

In addition, fans can expect German indie star Thees Uhlmann, British Gen-Z icon Yungblud, American heavy rock band Halestorm led by Elizabeth 'Lzzy' Hale, Chemnitz indie band Blond, German rapper Badmómzjay and US emo newcomer Charlotte Sands, glam rockers Steel Panther.

And yes, there are still many more to go!

As a special little treat, there is also the chance to experience the legendary punk rock veterans NOFX and Sum 41 once again in Germany. Both bands are ending their careers after their current farewell tours. Definitely not something you would want to miss.

In case you don't have any plans yet, you can buy tickets here. The festival is only 1 hour and 30 minutes away, so it would even be worth visiting just for a day.

Either way, keep your eyes peeled for some more content here on RTL Today and Today Radio! :-)
