Every time I’m driving on the German Autobahn a57 near Neukirchen, I longingly gaze at the Halde Norddeutschland with its skeleton house landmark where the Dong Open Air festival takes place every year. Oh, the fun times we had on top of that Dong Mountain, sipping beer in the sky lounge and head banging to our favourite bands.. “When”, I think every time, “will I finally be able to climb the mountain again for this legendary festival?” Well..good news everyone! The Dong Open Air festival of 2017 will take place in only one month! That’s right! From the 13th until the 15th of July, (which is only 29 days from now) there will be a party with a view once more, with the motto “weird times call for rock ‘n roll”. This time, some very special bands are celebrating the festival with us– Iced Earth, In Extremo, Dark Tranquility and God Dethroned, to name only a few. For the full line up, check : here Also, the running order is available there.
Tickets cost only €59,99 for the whole festival and can be buyed here
With those great bands, decent beer and food prices, excellent organization and of course that extraordinary view, it is worth every pfennig. So climb the hill (or just take the shuttle bus), set up your tent and come party with the Metal Exposure crew for an unforgettable weekend at Dong Open Air!
