Hurricane festival in North-West Germany has been hosting some of the world’s biggest acts since 1997. It has since emerged into one of Germany’s most popular rock festivals.

The music takes place over three days, across two stages, with most of the Hurricane 2012 line-up set to be shared with Southside festival over the same dates.

Past line-ups have seen appearances from Pixies, Faith No More and Kings of Leon. You can also bank on plenty of German talent with legends Kraftwerk and Rammstein appearing in previous years.

Bungee jumping, games, party tents and lots of international food stalls compete for the attention of festival-goers along with the stellar music line-up.
