Additional programme and stage!

This year there will be an additional stage with a special bonus programme for the first time: Close to the festival entrance there will be a circus tent providing entertainment from Tuesday to Saturday night.
We have come up with a varied programme which reads as follows:

Tuesday, 16. August 2016:
Kicking off the Tuesday will be another Fantasy Film Fest offshoot. In cooperation with the makers of FFF, we will be screening the New Zealand heavy metal horror comedy ‘Deathgasm‘, which no one over 18 should miss. The film will be screened three times, at 17:00, 19:00 and 21:00.
After this visual treat you can train your headbanging and dance moves for the following Metal Disco brought to you by our friends from And who knows, maybe some musicians will be there to party too…

Wednesday, 17. August 2016:
The much beloved Bembers‘ new comedy show ‘Rock’n’roll Jesus’ will leave no dry eye in the house, and afterwards the first of four appearances by New York’s disco metal band TRAGEDY will heat up the night. The guys from the East Coast have promised a real disco inferno, which will turn into a cool metal karaoke party every night for you to sing your lungs out. Early on still accompanied by TRAGEDY – pretty much as their lead singer – and later with recorded music as usual.

Thursday, 18. August 2016 and Friday, 19. August 2016:
Thursday and Friday will be dedicated to art from12:00 to 17:00: The famous cover artists Thomas Ewerhard, Jan Meininghaus and Björn Gooßes will be our guests with the successful art exhibition ‘Painted In Blood‘, which has already had a successful four-week run in Bochum. The three artists will be available in person both days for questions or a chat. Both on Thursday and on Friday Swabian groove metallers UNDERTOW will inaugurate the exhibition with an exclusive unplugged show.
Later at night TRAGEDY will ignite their Disco Inferno again and the karaoke box will be started.

Saturday, 20. August 2016:
On Saturday at 15:00 we will look after our young ones, as Germany’s leading rock band for children RANDALE will give our kids a little early rock education. As a special bonus, all parents with kids up to 12 years of age will get free access to the circus tent on the campsite. Therefore, there’s no need to have a SUMMER BREEZE ticket to attend, since the circus tent is on the campsite, not on the infield.
For Saturday, in collaboration with Germany’s most popular skin art TätowierMagazin, we have organized a tattoo contest for all our patrons, where a knowledgeable jury will choose the three best metal tattoos.
The grand finale of the circus tent’s first year will be TRAGEDY with their charming Disco Inferno, where you can burn your last energy reserves.

In the next few days we will be posting more detailed information about all the programme items.
Please note that the circus tent has obviously got a limited capacity, so there may be slight delays or limited access during the different programme items.
