The Rock comes back to the Ring
Since the last “Rock am Ring” were the rumors state that the Festival could be held no longer on the airfield Mendig. But what to do with the biggest event in the Eifel? Since today, there is clarity: The Festival returns to its original venue, the Nürburgring.
On the website of the festival, the organizer, the following is known:
“Rock am Ring return in 2017, to the Nürburgring! Organizer and ring the operator agreed to return the festival to its original location. This surprising decision is inevitable, declared the Marek lieberberg concert Agency and Live Nation in a statement. It is going to make the largest German Festival in the long term for the future.
The airfield Mendig, where the Open-Air took place in the last two years, is no longer tenable. Despite record visitor numbers and the economy will be immense-specific requirements in question. Continuously expanding requirements of the nature conservation authorities in terms of environmental, biodiversity and water protection are now making further investments in the millions necessary to provide without a Authorization, stressed the organizers.”
