Germany’s best kept musical secret, Haldern Pop, is set to return. The three-day festival, now in its fourth decade, is located in the small village of Haldern, in the beautiful lower Rhine Valley in Germany. Started in 1984 by 14 altar boys from the village, the event has grown into a much-loved and successful 7000 capacity multi-genre music event, with the Haldern community very much continuing to be part of the fabric of the festival.
Over 60 acts play across six unique stages, including the 1000 capacity Spiegel tent, a mirrored wooden dance tent from the 1920s. As a result, the unassuming village of Haldern will be transformed into a melting pot of music, with a wide and eclectic mix of genres represented, as well as international and domestic talent.
“The beauty is within the small size of the festival, and the trust that the ticket holders buy their tickets without the line-up announcement is the most important and valued thing for us,” Festival Director Stefan Reichmann said.
Transgenre, rock, indie, hip hop, soul
Over the years Haldern Pop has seen the likes of Bon Iver, Muse, Mumford & Sons, Kelis, Paul Weller, The Kooks, Alt-J, The Maccabees, Paolo Nutini, Laura Marling, Tom Odell, Patti Smith, Kate Tempest, Sam Smith and many more.
