Wutzrock Festival August 9-11, 2019
Free & Outdoors since 1979. The Wutzrock Festival was launched in 1979 as one of many measures to convince the city fathers of the need for a youth centre in the eastern area of Hamburg, which at that time had very little for young people to do.
The plan worked out and the youth centre came! The Wutzrock festival, however, remained and grew to become a local institution that is now one of the oldest festivals in Northern Germany. Later, the dedicated and long-standing Wutzrock team founded the non-profit association Galactic Entertainment e.V., which now sponsors Wutzrock. At this festival, contrasts collide head on with each other year after year, due to the thousands of people who make the pilgrimage to the Eichbaumsee in Allermöhe. Wutzrock is colourful, loud, young, old and apolitical. The variety of music, the great framework program with cabaret, children’s festival, poetry slam and football tournament as well as the situation between the Eichbaumsee and Dove Elbe are what make the charm of Wutzrock Umsonst & Draußen.
