Summer Breeze Open Air is a big heavy metal festival taking place in Dinkelsb?hl, Bavaria, Germany. Every year it’s visited by roughly 39.000-40.000 people and this fact practically makes Summer Breeze one of the most popular metal open air events in the land. The first Summer Breeze Open Air was organized in 1997 and it had been held in Abtsgm?nd until 2006 (1998 was the only exception) when it was moved to its new location of Dinkelsb?hl. As for now it goes 3 days and during this time about 100 bands play on 3 stages. Two of them – the Main Stage and the Pain Stage – stand right next to each other and the bands play one after another so you couldn’t miss any performance you find interesing. The 3rd stage called Partyzelt is far from the big stages and is actually sound-isolated. It’s generally for the Newcomer-Contest “New Blood Award” and the winning bands play on the Main Stage where only the stars play. The Metal Hammer Night party is also held there. In 2010 one more stage appeared, it’s called the Camel Stage and it’s located next to the Partyzelt.
Only the first Summer Breeze in 1997 was an amateur event with the unknown bands in its line-up. Now it’s rather all about the metal stars of all possible hard music styles like heavy meatl, death metal, black metal etc. It has featured a wide range of well-known bands such as ARCH ENEMY, BOLT THROWER, HAMMERFALL, IN EXTREMO, DORO, AMORPHIS, TARJA TURUNEN, SODOM, ANATHEMA, BEHEMOTH, CHILDREN OF BODOM, DARK TRANQUILLITY, LEAVES’ EYES, MY DYING BRIDE, RAGE, CREMATORY, SEPULTURA, UNLEASHED, DANZIG, SUBWAY TO SALLY, IMMORTAL, DIMMU BORGIR, NIGHTWISH, CRADLE OF FILTH, KREATOR and many many many others.
