ROCKHARZ 2024: Bruce Dickinson‘s only festival show in Germany!20.10.2023
Online store reopening with last ticket returns
The 30 years anniversary edition of ROCKHARZ in July 2023, celebrated by fans and press, was a complete success. While the event was still in full swing, two headliners – Hammerfall and Kreator – were already confirmed in addition to the first strong dozen of acts for the 31st edition of the friendly open air festival from July 03 to 06, 2024, at the Ballenstedt airfield in the Harz Mountains. The fans reacted promptly: after less than six weeks, ROCKHARZ 2024 officially announced "sold out" in mid-August. So much trust is being rewarded, for instance with the next big highlight for all the lucky ones who secured a ticket right away – Bruce Dickinson!
The Iron Maiden mastermind will celebrate his recently announced album The Mandrake Project exclusively under the Devil's Wall (a famous landmark of the Harz region and a place of pilgrimage for ROCKHARZ visitors) as part of the only festival show of the year in Germany. Organizer Thorsten "Buddy" Kohlrausch is proud and happy about this very special announcement:
"For many years we have been hoping to be able to present such a legendary artist as BRUCE DICKINSON on the ROCKHARZ stages one day. Now this dream comes true! And not only that! We will be the only festival in Germany where Bruce will perform with THE MANDRAKE PROJECT. Thanks to the universe for this unique opportunity and this accolade for our festival!"
But it keeps getting better: at the same time, four more highlights have been confirmed for next year with Amaranthe, Callejon, Benediction and Kanonenfieber – and that's not all; more bands, including some main acts, will be announced soon.
And there is hope for all those who don't have a ticket yet, because on Friday, Oct. 20, at 5 p.m. CEST, the ROCKHARZ online store will reopen. The clou: On this day, the last ticket returns will be posted in the store – and being quick might very well pay off! Because for all late-comers this will probably be the last chance to get a ticket for ROCKHARZ 2024 after all.
