In 2010 thousand of music fans from all over Europe will flock to the Nürburgring to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Rock am Ring. The festival takes place from the 4th to the 6th of June.

Rock am Ring is Germany's biggest Rock festival and also one of the greatest in Europe. This legendary festival is usually sold out weeks in advance, so if you would like to join the celebrations next year, plan ahead. Tickets can be bought here: www.rock—am—ring.com.

Held for the first time in 1985, the Rock am Ring festival was supposed to be a one—off. However, due to its instant popularity, the organizers decided to make it an annual event. Major bands, such as INXS and Metallica have appeared at the Nürburgring but the festival also prides itself in providing a platform for young and unknown bands with outstanding talent. Rock am Ring is a musical event where you regularly get the unique chance to see present newcomers and future Rock stars for the first time on a big stage.
