It took this festival only a few editions to raise to one of the leading progressive rock festivals in Europe - or probably even the world.
Next to the music and bands that have taken part at the various festival editions, the main reason for the success is simply the location!
The UNESCO world heritage Loreley (GERMANY) is one of the most outstanding Open Air Amphitheaters in Europe. High above the river Rhine,
the visitors are overwhelmed by the beautiful view of the surrounding area.
By this outstanding ambiente we continue to establish the festival as the "Mekka of Progressive Rock".
The highlights of the past 6 years have been
The tradition to supply a stage for young and emergent bands is one of our major tasks.
To give them the chance to play in front of thousands of people will definitely help to create a career.
