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!


We hope you all made it home in one piece and that you will keep SUMMER BREEZE 2017 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 2018 are already underway. Attentive festival patrons will have noticed the banners on the fences and towers: SUMMER BREEZE 2018 will take place from August 15th to 18th! Keep your eyes and ears open, there will be plenty of news and band announcements in the next few weeks and months.

The ticket presale for SUMMER BREEZE Open Air 2018 starts tomorrow.

Only on you can get the festival ticket as a so called blind ticket for €99 (incl. camping ans presale fee) until 09.09.2017. From 10.09.2017 to 11.01.2018 the festival ticket will be available for the earlybird price of €111 (incl. camping and presale fee). From 12.01.2018 on, the festival ticket will cost its normal price of €129 (incl. camping and presale fee).

For SUMMER BREEZE Open Air 2018 a separate parking ticket must be purchased per vehicle. This ticket is not available through presale, so it has to be purchased on site.

Apart from that, the first 10,000 tickets ordered on for SUMMER BREEZE 2018, which will grant you access to the metal party of the year from August 15 to 18, include a free SUMMER BREEZE 2016 DVD. Go ahead and 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!
