Hurricane Festival Tickets
The exceptional rock music pedigree of the Hurricane Festival
The Hurricane Festival is one of the longest-running rock festivals in Germany and now has a reputation that ensures you'll be able to catch the biggest bands of the moment year after year. It's steeped in rock music tradition – you can't get more authentic than a festival where Golden Earring has actually played "Radar Love"! So when you buy or sell Hurricane Festival tickets on StubHub, you're pretty much guaranteed a music event to remember.
David Bowie's last solo live appearance
Back when the likes of Lou Reed headlined the festival (in the heyday of the classic rock pioneers in 1973) it wasn't yet known as the Hurricane Festival. It was a one-off, however repeated four years later, but then the festival fell dormant. It was resurrected in earnest in 1997 and given the name Hurricane Festival, and once again the bill was enviable. Festivalgoers were treated to headliners INXS, Bad Religion and Germany's own Rammstein. The festival also holds the singular distinction of hosting the final live performance that David Bowie made as a solo artist in 2004. He only just managed the gig too, having to be hospitalised for hearing difficulties that very night, resulting in the cancellation of his appearance at the festival's sister event, the Southside Festival in Tuttlingen. So you can clearly see that Hurricane Festival tickets promise way more than your average music festival, and one where you never know what momentous performance you'll witness. It always promises to be the highlight of all serious music fans' summer calendar when finding themselves in Germany.
Indie bands on the verge of international breakthrough
The Hurricane Festival hasn't only played host to established superstars: plenty of fresh young indie artists have cut their teeth here on the way to the next level of commercial success. It's a great steppingstone for bands on the cusp of major success, so when you get Hurricane Festival tickets, you're also assured of watching bands in that scintillating phase when they are just about to take off and everyone knows it. It's a unique kind of excitement. Imagine watching a band like White Lies and hearing "To Lose My Life" in that thrilling moment just before the song exploded across the indie world. It's the kind of live experience that real music fans live for! Combine this with the perennial appearance of stalwarts like NOFX and it's hard to argue that the Hurricane Festival isn't the premier music event of its kind in Germany, and a date that's well worth making on your next summer trip to the country. When the time comes, you can find all the tickets you want right here on StubHub.
