Many, many thanks, dear friends!

361 days of intensive preparation – in the last few weeks before the festival almost 24 hours a day – ended in four indescribable days of metal ecstasy. Behind us (and you) are 96 hours that felt like 24.

It was fantastic! For us, a 100%! We hope it was the same for you, dear SUMMER BREEZE community! It is you and the unique SUMMER BREEZE atmosphere and relaxed party mood you create who make the Himalaya-high mountains of work, the sleep deprivation and the aching limbs worthwhile. Without you, SUMMER BREEZE wouldn’t be what it is!


Special thanks go out to the god of weather, who was especially kind to SUMMER BREEZE this year. Perfect festival weather made for an untroubled festival feeling every day.

We hope you all made it home in one piece and that you will keep SUMMER BREEZE 2013 in your memories as a truly special experience. For all praise and criticism there is our community, our Facebook page and the contact form on at your disposal. Please feel free to make use of these channels. We want to keep getting better!

The preparations for 2014 are already underway. Attentive festivalgoers will have noticed the trailer on the big screen and the banners on the fences. With HEAVEN SHALL BURN, CHILDREN OF BODOM, BEHEMOTH, HYPOCRISY, WINTERSUN, ARCH ENEMY, CALIBAN and J.B.O., the first major bands are already confirmed for SUMMER BREEZE 2014. You can also look forward to more confirmations when our popular Advent Calendar starts on December 1st, 2013.

Ticket pre-sales for SUMMER BREEZE 2014 start now. Only on the first 10,000 tickets are available for the earlybird price of 92.- Euro (incl. parking/camping and pre-sale fee) with a free SUMMER BREEZE 2012 DVD. Order now, because one thing is for sure: WE want to see YOU again next year!

Furthermore, we would like to thank all the bands, the many helpers, technicians, crew members, security guards, organizers, traders and cleaning personnel. Without you, none of this would be possible. Respect!

In closing, let us cite many of the bands who played: “SUUUMMEEER BREEEEEEZE! Thanks! It was great! You are the best!”

See you next year!

Stay heavy!
