Linkin Park, together with Metallica and the Toten Hosen will lead the scope of participants at Rock am Ring and Rock im Park. The most popular rock group of the past century will release a new studio album in the summer of 2012 and perform again at the twin-festival for the first time in five years.
As additional highlights of the open-air summer, the re-united Soundgarden in its original line-up, Canada’s Punk-Alternative-Heroes Billy Talent, the Disco-Rock-Formation Gossip with their charismatic „front woman“ Beth Ditto and The Offspring have confirmed their exclusive performances.
Further attractions are the up- and coming global superstar of electronic music Skrillex, who was just recently nominated for five Grammys, and Tenacious D with its strong-voiced frontman, actor and comedian Jack Black. The shows of these highly diverse artists, who are first time participants at Ring and Park, are most likely received with great anticipation and excitement by fans and producers
National bands and artists such as Deichkind, MIA., Dick Brave & the Backbeats, Guano Apes, Donots and Lexy & K-Paul promise grand entertainment and illustrate the festival’s musical spectrum.
With Kasabian, The Subways and Enter Shikari, a commitment of the most exciting British formations in recent years was achieved.
Fans of the more hard-core environment are not being missed out with the current confirmations either. With Motörhead, Marilyn Manson, Machine Head, Killswitch Engage and Opeth, the most diverse representatives of the various facets and currents of the metal-genre are represented.
Together with the already confirmed headliners Metallica, which are playing their ‚Black Album‘ in its entirety, and the Toten Hosen, who are celebrating their 30th anniversary, it is already apparent that Rock am Ring and Rock im Park will be the highlight of the festival season.
More than 55.000 Ring- and Parkrocker have already secured their ticket for the events at Nürburgring and in Nuremburg. The current ticket price range of 160,- Euro at the Ring and 155,- Euro at the Park, including pre-sales fee, camping and parking as well as a refundable waste deposit in the amount of 5,- Euro is valid until January 15th, 2012.
