In Union We Stand

Dear fans, and friends of our festivals,

“In Union We Stand” – the much-praised OVERKILL slogan is more relevant today than ever.

The past weeks and months have once again shown how much the metal family stands together. The incredible support you show towards all of our festivals has given us strength and courage in challenging times and continues to do so.

We, the organizers, have also moved closer together and have come together throughout Germany for a regular exchange. We are in the starting blocks to bring our festivals to live in the best possible way, as soon as the opportunity arises. Because the summer of 2021 is not lost yet!

Should there be festival cancellations, we ask you for your solidarity with the affected festivals, because this solidarity is still urgently needed.

A healthy music scene needs a diverse live scene – at the moment this is still the case in Germany. No matter if mainstream or underground, our festival landscape offers the right setting for every band and every fan. This is very important, but the pandemic threatens this diversity heavily.

We as festival organizers stick together and hope for your ongoing support!

Thank you for standing by our side – without you we would be nothing!
