Metalfest Open Air West Germany in Loreley is the only Metalfest held in the country now. In 2010 the first German Metalfest was born and it took place in Dessau, East Germany. At first it was very successful and it gave the management an idea to create another Metalfest for the West Germany. So in 2012 two Metalfest incarnations were organized: the Metalfest East Germany and the Metalfest West Germany. The second one found its place in Loreley, a beatiful and in some sense even a historical place above the river of Rhine. Both festivals had basically the same line-up, but West Germany got some more major acts, like for example BLIND GUARDIAN as one of the headliners. The stage in Loreley was also taken by such bands like MEGADETH, IN EXTREMO, KREATOR, BEHEMOTH, EDGUY and many others.
In 2013 it was decided it’s more than enough to have just one Metlafest in the country and it made the event’s management to cancel the festival in Dessau as the less profitable one. Since that day the Metalfest in Loreley is mentioned just as Metalfest Loreley sometimes. Now it’s quite a popular 3-day metal event gathering thousands of heavy music fans from all the Europe.
