In January, ROLLING STONE Park received the European Festival Award “Best New Festival” for last year’s much-praised premiere. Critics and fans are correspondingly eager to find out the names of those performing at the second edition of the indoor comfort festival, which will take place on 8 and 9 November 2019 at the Confertainment Centre at Europa-Park. Organiser FKP Scorpio has now released the first twelve names, which should create quite a buzz.
ROLLING STONE Park announces initial line-up for 2019
The pioneers of British ska, The Specials, are celebrating their 40th year on stage and will also stop over at ROLLING STONE Park. The quintet Elbow from Manchester will perform sensual rock songs – an impressive live show is guaranteed. Bob Mould, former head of the legendary Hüsker Dü, will also perform at the festival together with his band. Fans of raw and energetic garage rock will especially look forward to Jon Spencer & The Hitmakers. With Blumfeld, one of the most seminal German-singing bands of its generation is returning to the festival stage. The rhythm and blues artist Nick Waterhouse and the successful Irish indie-folk formation Villagers also confirmed they would be performing at the second edition of the indoor festival. With the Mark Lanegan Band, one of the most subversive alternative rockers is coming to Rust. In addition, the American singer-songwriter Joan As Police Woman, the country singer Nikki Lane, the German singer-songwriter and Flowerpornoes founder Tom Liwa with his exclusive programme Tom Liwas Welt and the Canadian blues rockers The Blue Stones will also grace the stage at ROLLING STONE Park 2019.
These first names are just an amuse bouche of the rich festival line-up, which will include international and national stars and newcomers from all types of rock ‘n’ roll. Thus, the foundation for a successful continuation of the festival concept – which started back in 2009 with ROLLING STONE Beach at the holiday and leisure park Weissenhäuser Strand – has been laid. The sister festival in northern Germany has, for many years, always been sold out well in advance. Which is why ROLLING STONE Park would also like to establish the popular combination of powerful live music and comfortable mini-break in the south of the country. Europa-Park, with its superbly equipped First Class or First Class Superior hotels and ideal infrastructure is the perfect venue for such an event.
In addition to enjoying more than 30 concerts on four stages plus exclusive sideshows, festival guests to ROLLING STONE Park can also take advantage of the special comfort Europa-Park provides. Premium accommodation with exquisite culinary offers as well as spa and gym facilities guarantee maximum relaxation away from the festival hubbub. The E.P.-Express ferries visitors between the hotels and the festival venue, and distances between the stages are short. For those who would like to make the most of the leisure park surroundings, Europa-Park is opening its rides, despite it being off-season.
