Rock am Ring is a rock music festival held at Germany's Nürburgring. Along with twin festival Rock im Park, it's right at the top of any rock fan's bucket list.
U2 were some of the first to step out onto the stage way back in 1985, and in the three decades since there have been more legends pass through than most other festivals could dream of.
32 years of full-throttle rock, heavy metal and punk music have fuelled Rock am Ring's continuing dominance of the worldwide scene. Rock am Ring's jaw-dropping and storied past sets it apart from newer, younger pretenders to its throne, and the weight of reputation more than holds up with each edition.
