Line-up full!

Dear Burgbrandlers,

We've done it - the line-up is complete. With Hall and Ex-Orbit, the last two additions have been announced, bringing our 15 bands together.

From now on, it's the home straight! The pre-sale will remain open until 21.07.24; the tickets must then be paid for by 28.07.24 so that the tickets can be sent out in time before the Burgbrand.

We are already very excited and look forward to your visit!

Help for stranded festival visitors

The Wacken Open Air announces a complete entrance stop.

We feel for all metal fans whose festival weekend is now literally rained off. That's why we want to help! All Wacken ticket owners will get a weekend ticket to Burgbrand Open Air for 10 € at the box office.

Please note that we are a small festival and therefore have to limit these special tickets to 250 pieces. So if you want to stop by at the B.O.A. on your way home from the W.O.A., please send us a short email to and tell us how many people you want to come with. We will confirm your arrival and you are there!


The presale ends today! We would like to thank everyone who has already purchased a ticket.

If you still want to do this very quickly, you can do it in our store.

But remember: THE PAYMENT MUST BE IN YOUR ACCOUNT BY 31.07.2023. If that doesn't work out anymore, we will cancel the order. But there are definitely still enough tickets at the box office.

We are looking forward to welcoming you and can't wait for it to finally start!

Ticket pre-sale ends 28.07.2023

Dear Burgbrandlers,

the presale will run until 28.07.2023. After that, the shop will be switched off, as we will then buy tickets at the box office and merch at the festival.

Here are the ticket prices at the box office:
Weekend ticket: 55 €
Day ticket Friday: 35 €
Day ticket Saturday: 40 €

After the festival, the shop will go online again and the rest of the merch can be bought as usual!

We are looking forward to your visit.

New Headliner

Unfortunately, we have some bad news today. We have been informed that STRIKER has cancelled their entire European tour, which of course also affects our concert. For more information, we refer to the band's social media accounts.

Instead, we are proud to welcome RAGING SPEEDHORN! Musically we move into a wild mixture of Hardcore and Sludge, which is a good frame for our festival. We are sure that the sheer unbridled energy of the six Englishmen will jump over to you. For a warm-up we recommend the last two albums "Lost Ritual" and "Hard To Kill".

We are happy to welcome the band here - especially because German gigs are rather rare.
Cooperation with KOLOSS

Dear Burgbrandlers,

we are very happy to introduce a new partner to you!

KOLOSS Skateboards (Insta/FB) and the Black Heaven Skateshop (Insta/FB) will have a stand at our festival.

We are very grateful to have been approached, as we have always liked their unique designs.

Make sure you get a ticket, then you can buy a new wardrobe!

Your Burgbrand Open Air Team

2023 the castle burns again!
We are ready! The planning for 2023 is underway and there is first reliable information:
  1. Date: 03./04./05.08.2023 - we had to move the event, because otherwise half of us would have had to go to school introductions. This would have been rather unfavorable from an organizational point of view.
  2. Ticket sales now run directly through us and starts FRIDAY! There will be a special store on this page. There you can buy tickets and merchandise.
  3. We will of course announce the first bands this week, so you know what you are in for.
  4. We are looking forward to you!
Burgbrand 2022 is history!

Dear Burgbranders,

what a fantastic weekend it was! We would like to thank everyone who visited Burgbrand 2022 and we are excited to see you all again next year.

Infos about the next edition, new bands and a little review of this year's Burgbrand Open Air will be available soon here and on our social media channels!

line-up changes

We are sorry to inform you that Betalmand and Chaos and Confusion have to cancel due to illness. We wish the affected band members a speedy recovery.

As a replacement for Friday night Eradicator will step in. Fast, groovy Thrash Metal, absolutely uncompromising, simply good. Nice dudes on top of that. We are all the more grateful that the band was able to step in at such short notice.

On Saturday afternoon we welcome Abyzz on our stage, who will complete our line-up with wild Death Metal and represent the colleagues from Betalmand worthily!

line-up changes

Today, we have some good news and some bad news for you.

Unfortunately, Milking The Goatmachine and Skinned Alive have to cancel their participation in the Burgbrand Open Air 2022. The reasons for this are absolutely understandable and we would like to take this opportunity to officially thank them for the early information and the trustful cooperation. We hope that we can repeat our cooperation in 2023 and wish all the best to the bands.

Now for the good news: we have a high-quality replacement! We are very happy to welcome Endstille to the castle. Zingultus was with us in 2019 and we are very happy to have the rest of the band with us now!

As a replacement for Skinned Alive, we were able to sign Norkh, a band that fits in well with the already confirmed bands, but also knows how to convince with their individual sound!

A bunch of information

As announced, there is some more information today!

  1. As promised, the tickets from 2020 will remain valid. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all ticket holders for their patience and understanding of our situation.
  2. Residents of Lauchröden will of course again have free admission. Simply show your identity card at the entrance and enter!
  3. We cannot yet make any statements about possible hygiene rules. Our aim is to organise a normal festival. However, we cannot rule out the possibility that we will have to apply 3G rules, for example. We will of course inform you about this.
  4. For information on the layout of the area (camping and parking spaces) see the info-section on the homepage
