Every summer, music lovers from all over Europe flock to the town of Scheeßel (Scheessel) for a three-day celebration of rock, alternative, pop and electro music. Since its first edition in 1997, Hurricane Festival has grown into one of Germany’s largest music festivals, attracting over 77,000 visitors every year. Besides internationally successful artists and German favourites, the festival has also been a springboard for up-and-coming bands.
The line-up for 2018 includes headliners like Arcade Fire, The Prodigy, Billy Talent, The Offspring, Beginners, The Kooks, Franz Ferdinand — and many more.
Hurricane Festival takes place on the Eichenring motorcycle track in the town of Scheeßel, some 70 km southwest of Hamburg. The festival is easily reached by public transport, with Scheeßel train station located only 1,5 kilometres away from the festival grounds. Regional trains depart from Hamburg Central Station every hour and take about 50 minutes to reach Scheeßel. Visitors can spend the night at several campsites ranging from basic tent sites to luxury accommodation. Parking spaces are available, but cars are not allowed on the campsites.
