Loreley keep´s on rocking - new bands confirmed!

St. Goarshausen – The famous rock will rock again mid of June 2017, and the RockFels festival is gradually taking shape. The probably most picturesque and atmospheric German metal festival is enriched by further acts. TARJA, OHRENFEINDT and SANCTUARY have been freshly confirmed for the line up.


As member of the achieved band NIGHTWISH the Finnish female singer TARJA had made a name for herself with smashing hits like “Nemo” or “I wish I had an angel”. The trained soprano is one of the most successful women in the scene and released her new album in summer 2016. It is already album number four since she had left NIGHTWISH. After some headliner shows in autumn 2016 she will appear at the Loreley RockFels festival in summer 2017.


With SANCTUARY a band of the true US metal cult is coming up to German’s most famous rock. Founded in 1985 the band became one of the most trend setting and unique metal acts of the late 80s and early 90s. At that time the band was mentioned in a breath with QUEENSRYCHE and METAL CHURCH. The career of SANCTUARY was slowed by the burgeoning grunge boom in the 90s, but in 2011 the group celebrated its comeback at the “Wacken Festival”. With “Inception”, the band has announced a new album for the beginning of 2017.


With the band OHRENFEINDT a vociferous portion of Rock’n Roll and “Hamburgian St. Pauli street dust” will join the RockFels line up. Chris Laut’s grating voice is praised for its vocals full of character and as a kind of a German response to AC/DC. In spring 2017 the band will release a new album. With their song “Rock’n’Roll Sexgott” the band was able to succeed a radio hit a few years ago.


Meanwhile the early bird tickets are sold out – from now only the ordinary festival tickets are in advance.


Hardly any other festival region in Germany has so many offers in addition to the actual event like, e.g. the picturesque area around Germany’s most famous rock, where the festival will take place again, dreamlike landscapes, shipping on the Rhine, wine tasting or sightseeing.

The area reflects what the festival already says in its concept: instead of impassable, muddy areas, lots of beer and noise, the RockFels festival offers a solid, upscale open air atmosphere, well infrastructure and facilities and also a VIP area.


You can’t rock more picturesque in Germany!


The RockFels festival will already start on Thursday, June 15th 2017 with a warm-up party at the Loreley beer garden, which invites you to linger and rest during the entire open air.


With the first RockFels festival in August 2015 a new era has dawned at the Loreley open-air theatre. And with its new edition in 2016 the festival of short distances meets the spirit of the time of all rock and metal fans.


For 40 years the Loreley has been an important location for concerts within the international music scenery at all. The theater with its exclusive and outstanding tours and grandiose festivals assures everybody. Even the utterly sound gourmet! The open air theater with its superb sound has found its way into the top ranking stages in Europe.


Also rock and heavy metal fans have made great live experiences with the legendary “WDR Rockpalast” concerts, with the “golden summer night” festivals or with the “metal hammer” festival in 1985.


With the RockFels festival 2015 the Loreley became a new home for all fans of the traditional hard rock and heavy metal.


The well-versed and qualified event management can guarantee all visitors of the RockFels festival an extraordinary experience on both days of the event and to feel like on a relaxed holiday trip to the unique UNESCO world cultural heritage Rhine valley.


Ulrich Lautenschläger, venue manager and festival organizer, about the idea of the RockFels festival: “Since 2010 metal and hard rock are fix offers of the Loreley events. But from 2015 on the RockFels festival will take place every year and will make the Loreley in the truest sense of the German word a “RockFels” what means a rocking rock. With the support of the fans and the bands we will make this festival consistently a highlight for rock and metal in the German festival scene."
