The biggest Open Air Festival in Germany is getting closer with every second. Rock am Ring has become a big brand in the world of Rock, Alternative and Heavy Metal with some of the biggest bands of the planet have already performed on the stage. The crowd is so massive that on TV recordings you can see people up to the end of the horizon and even further.
Sadly, the festival is sold out since a long time and not everybody will be able to be there for several reasons. Good luck, also this year their will be a online stream available. And you will even be able to watch the full Metallica show - I was blown away when I read about it. :-)
You can find the stream and the list of bands that are set to be streamed at this link (changes still possible, depends upon confirmation of the bands, management etc.). Remember that the times given are in german time.
