Annual 3 day festival in the South West of Germany. Rock am Ring is one of the biggest rock festivals in the World with around 100.000 visitors every year!! This was our third time we went. Were always at a campsite about 3 km form the festival area. It's not an official campsite from rock am ring, but just from a farmer who is ok with people camping on his property, he already does this for many years. We arrived on Fridays as usual. The official campsite open already at tuesdays! If you want a good spot near the festival area you make sure you go early in the week. If you arrive later you will have to walk further. Every year the same ritual. Puting up our party tent, sleeping tents, getting the music going and openeing the first can of Beers.
We also prepear the BBQ for some good festival food. For the rest we just make lots of fun there. Aorund 6 on fridays we walk the first time to the festival area, were already some bands were playing. There 3 stages 2 outside mainstages and one inside stage in a big tent. A quick look at our festival schedule tells us wich stage to go. There were alot of bands playing on the friday e.g.:Rage Against The Machine,The Prodigy,Motörhead,Bullet For My Valentine and much more. Our favorite band was Bullet For My Valentine, they had a great show!! After them we went back to the campsite and drink some more beer (what else to do!!)
On Saterday we got up pretty early(don't know why!!) We had coffee and some good breakfest bacon and eggs, because more Beer was scheduled for the rest of the day.
Our campsite on the hill!!
We also had a good BBQ that afternoon. At 5 we went back to the festival area were we saw, Alterbridge, Disturbed, in Flames on the main center stage. The rest of the night we stayed in the Coca Cola soundwave tent and wachted some bands still getting to be famous, but never the less lots of them pretty good. The tent is open till 3 but we left before. We went outside of the festival area and when to the 24 hour tent on our way to the campsite. This tent is 5 days open during the festival 24 hours a day. there no bands playing but a rock DJ. There is always party going on in the tent if you still have the energy. We stayed for about an hour an walked back. Hungry from drinkin we fired up the BBQ (again!!) and baked some more hamburgers and other stuff!!!! Another day pas by!!! Next day it was time to leave again, we always hate that day, cleaning up all the mes we made. We always make sure the campsite looks clean again wen we leave so were welcome the next year again on this farmer ground. The trip home took us about 2 hours incl. the stop for some morning snack. Arriving home the first thing was taking a showe, thats the best part of coming home after 3 days of camping!!
