Festival season begins: Rock am Ring and Rock im Park lead Germany’s music scene

 

Rock am Ring and Wacken are among the most well-known festivals in Germany

63 percent of Germans say they are at least familiar with the name Rock am Ring. Wacken Open Air is known by 59 percent of respondents, while 43 percent are familiar with Rock im Park. Less well-known are Hurricane (27 percent), Deichbrand (20 percent), as well as Lollapalooza Berlin, Parookaville, and Southside (each 15 percent).

An age comparison shows that Rock am Ring and Wacken are particularly well-known among older people: 71 percent of those over 55 know Rock am Ring by name (compared to 63 percent of the total population). For Wacken, it’s 69 percent (compared to 59 percent of the total population).

Younger festivals like Deichbrand and Southside, on the other hand, are better known among 35- to 44-year-olds, while Lollapalooza and Parookaville are particularly known among 25- to 34-year-olds.

 

The price of a festival ticket can be up to 100 euros

Of those surveyed aged 18 and over who have attended or plan to attend a festival since the COVID-19 pandemic, 37 percent spend between 50 and 100 euros on a ticket. Men are slightly more likely to do so than women (39 percent versus 34 percent). However, women are more willing to spend over 150 euros on a festival ticket (18 percent versus 15 percent of men and 16 percent of the total population).

 

Hygiene is more important than well-known headliners

When festival-goers are asked what is particularly important to them during a festival visit, most (53 percent) say that clean sanitary and shower facilities are important to them. Women place more importance on this than men (56 percent versus 51 percent).

For festival-goers, hygiene is even more important than well-known headliners in the line-up (45 percent). There is a clear gender difference here: 48 percent of women consider this important (compared to 43 percent of men). Additionally, 41 percent of respondents value adequate catering, while 27 percent prioritize sufficient space at camping sites.
