Winston McCall – singer of FULL FORCE regulars PARKWAY DRIVE – once said that Ferropolis is the “most metal place on earth”. And how right he was! Five bucket-wheel and bucket-chain excavators, up to 130m long and 30m high, watch over FULL FORCE Island at Gremminer See, the gnarliest peninsula you’ve ever seen! These impressive monuments of industrial history give the FULL FORCE Festival its outstanding atmosphere, which will remain in the memory of all visitors.
Where once lignite was mined, nowadays the FULL FORCE Holidays are celebrated every year. With several bathing beaches on the festival grounds, Ferropolis offers a unique festival setting that is second to none. Where else can you enjoy your favorite bands with your feet in the water?
Whether you want to jump into the fray in front of the MAD MAX Mainstage, enjoy a small club atmosphere at the BACKYARD Stage, go crazy with beatdown moshpits at the HARDBOWL Stage or prefer beach concerts at the MEDUSA Stage – there is something for everyone in Ferropolis. The four stages are rounded off by additional offers such as workshops, yoga sessions, a flunkyball tournament, a forest with a separate beach for relaxing and many other great experiences.
Ferropolis is centrally located between Berlin and Leipzig, about 20km away from Dessau in Saxony-Anhalt. The peninsula is easily accessible via Gräfenhainichen train station by train from Berlin via Lutherstadt Wittenberg or directly from Leipzig. From Gräfenhainichen, shuttle buses run at regular intervals to Ferropolis.
