NÜRBURGRING, Germany (VIP-NEWS) — The organizers and Venue operators have agreed on a return of the festival to its original location.
It is about making the biggest German festival sustainable in the long term and therefore the decision is inevitable, says Marek Lieberberg concert agency and Live Nation in a joint statement.
The airfield Mendig, where the event took place in the last two years, was no longer durable. Despite record visitor numbers, economic efficiency is being questioned in the long term by immense specific requirements. Constantly extended environmental protection requirements for nature conservation, species and water protection now required further investments in millions, without guaranteeing a long-term licensing, stated the organizers.
According to their assessment, similar conditions would be the knockout criterion for most European festivals. At the same time, it was pointed out that in the previous years in Mendig, all environmental requirements were met one hundred percent.
That is why the event returned to the Nürburgring, which was approved as a venue with clear, manageable conditions. According to the organizers, the venue operators have made a convincing attempt to return to acceptable conditions.
40,000 three-day tickets have been sold so far for Rock Am Ring 2017, which are now valid for the Nürburgring. The various special offers like Rock`n`Roll-Camping, Experience and Caravan Camping are maintained and implemented on preferred areas.
