Munich/Cologne 19 May 2022. RTL+ rocks! After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, the streaming service is showing Germany’s legendary Rock am Ring festival live in partnership with CTS EVENTIM, a leading international provider of ticketing services and live entertainment. From 3–5 June, RTL+ will be streaming an amazing line-up of acts free of charge and without restrictions to music fans everywhere via the web browser on RTLplus.de and the app for RTL+ premium users. Green Day, Muse and Volbeat will be headlining the festival, with other top acts including Placebo, Måneskin, Marteria, Beatsteaks, Jan Delay & Disko No. 1, The Offspring, Korn, Deftones and Scooter.
The stream will be produced by EVENTIM Brand Connect, which is responsible for brand partnerships, media marketing and sponsorships at CTS EVENTIM. “We are delighted to have gained an outstanding new media partner in RTL+. After an enforced two-year break, this Rock am Ring festival promises to be extra special. It’s great that we can now share this experience with even more people,” says Dr Frithjof Pils, Managing Director of EVENTIM LIVE. “Our partnership with RTL+ underscores our strategic objective to massively grow EVENTIM Brand Connect as a business segment in the near future.”
Frauke Neeb, programme director at RTL+: “We are in the process of growing RTL+ into Germany’s largest entertainment platform, where we will also be offering an extensive range of music to stream in the future. We are delighted that this new partnership with EVENTIM is already giving us the opportunity to offer our customers a live stream of Germany’s largest music festival featuring top acts.”
Around 70 acts are expected at the festival on its traditional first weekend of June. Tens of thousands of music fans have flocked to the Nürburgring since 1985. The offshoot Rock im Park was added in 1997. Over the decades, top acts such as David Bowie, The Bangles, Alanis Morissette, The Fugees, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against The Machine, Metallica and Die Toten Hosen have played there. From the outset, the festival has reflected the musical zeitgeist of the time.
