Deichbrand is a music festival that takes place in or near Cuxhaven, usually every July/August. The festival and its guests are generally associated with metal, emo, rock, pop and hip-hop. Deichbrand was sold out in advance for the first time with an attendance about 18,000 people in 2011.[1]

History and venues[edit]

Deichbrand was founded by Marc Engelke and Daniel Schneider creating a festival highlight for young people around the sea region. The first edition of the festival took place at Fort Kugelbake (northernmost spot of Lower Saxony), Cuxhaven on September 2, 2005 and was attended by 500 people. Acts for the first edition included Die Apokalyptischen Reiter, Lost Dayz and much more. Daily tickets were sold for €12.[2] „It´s a long way to the top if you wanna Rock´n´Roll!“ was the slogan of Deichbrand in 2006. The festival organisation was in the red, but Deichbrand took place just of the dike between Cuxhaven and Altenbruch. In 2006, the event was attended by 4,000 people and included acts such as Revolverheld or Schandmaul. The festival was supported by volunteers and sponsored by companies like Veltins.[3] The 3rd edition of Deichbrand took place on August 24, 2007. Since 2007 the event had been holding 2 stages, Fire Stage and Water Stage. In 2007, Deichbrand took place on a new location close to the old of 2006.[4] Since 2009, after annual location changes Deichbrand had been well establishing at sea-airport Cuxhaven/Nordholz. Nowadays Deichbrand focus more and more on international acts such as Mando Diao or Dropkick Murphys.[5] The coming Deichbrand is announced for July 17, 2014.

Camping[edit]

Green camping[edit]

Green camping means a separate area for campers with sustainable interests. The area is constructed for 8,000 people and surrounded by trees. The campsite is linked with the festival area through a small forest road. The goal is to camp clean, without rubbish on the ground and without loud music.[6]

WOMO Camp[edit]

WOMO camp is the only campsite where visitors are allowed to use their cars or other vehicles for camping. Basis for a spot is a before purchased badge. Badges are valid per vehicle. Visitors, who share a vehicle, need only to buy one badge for their vehicle. That allows friends from other campsite visiting people at the WOMO camp. Besides the vehicle visitors are allowed to pitch 2 tents.[7]
