Germany's Rock Am Ring has moved 30 km from the old venue, the Nürburgring to a new home Mendig Airfield a huge green compound in the midst of a volcanic landscape that can comfortably accommodate several open-air and tent stages as well as level camping for more than 85,000 festival fans.

German music event promoter, Marek Lieberberg says of the new location, "It was the unique character of the festival area and the enthusiasm, commitment and competence of the responsible parties that tipped the scale in favour of Mendig."

The new venue pipped a military base in Monchengladbach which was also a potential venue in the running to host the festival.

Until 2007, Mendig airfield had been a training site for the German air force and was then converted to a civilian space. Now nearly 190 hectares of open lawns, which provide ideal festival grounds, while the stages can be built on firm ground.

Lieberberg believes the site offers the potential to realize a festival of the future: spacious open-air grounds with excellent traffic connections, problem-free parking and camping in the immediate vicinity of the festival site, short walking distances between the stages and enough space to chill and relax.

"Free of restrictions with regard to space and topography, we will now be able to offer the fans an even better festival", Lieberberg added.

The 30th edition of the festival and its festival twin Rock im Park in Nuremberg will take place over 3 days from Friday 5th to Sunday 7th June 2015. Advance ticket sales will start next month. Headliners and other bands will also be announced at the same time.
