Praised by many poets and loved by millions of visitors from all over the world, the Loreley is not only the heart of the world cultural heritage rhine valley.

METALFEST Germany East/Dessau

Metalfest Dessau (near Leipzig) will be taking place for the third time already and 2011 27.000 metalheads found their way to Dessau and celebrated three days of metal festival at its best in sunny and perfect festival weather. Acts like Sabaton, Wintersun, Amorphis, Amon Amarth, Arch Enemy, Cradle Of Filth and plenty more made Metalfest Dessau an unique event. It´ll again be located on the airfield Dessau and the festival offers best fan service and value for money. Ticket price includes camping and parking and all other food and drink expenses at the festival site are more than reasonable for an Open Air event!

The good location nearby the highway A9 makes an arrival by car very easy, but also Berlin and Leipzig airport lie within a reasonably short distance. From Dessau main station you are able to get to the festival area either by foot in a few minutes or with the festival shuttles supplied.

METALFEST Österreich/Mining am Inn

Also 2012 in the very idyllic and beautiful surroundings of Castle Mamling in Mining/Inn METALFEST is about to draw fans in from all over the place. Last time, the festival was completely SOLD-OUT, another prove of the huge success of the Metalfest series. Metal fans party in a very unique scenery with metal bands from all sorts of different musical styles. Metal with no boundaries and a friendly atmosphere! Three days of high class bands and partying, amazing live performances and having fun - Metalfest Austria has become very popular for its cosy vibe and will again unite fans in the name of metal music. Tickets are limited to 6.000 passes, so get it now because it´s more than likely the event 2012 will be sold-out as well.
