Streaming service RTL+ will be treating music fans to a free-of-charge livestream of Germany’s Rock am Ring festival in June.

In partnership with ticketing services and live entertainment provider CTS Eventim, the festival will be livestreamed online or via the app for RTL+ premium users.

After a two-year enforced hiatus due to the pandemic, Rock am Ring, is returning from June 3-5 and features a line-up of acts such as Green Day, Muse, Placebo, Måneskin, The Offspring, Deftones and Scooter.

The stream will be produced by Eventim Brand Connect, which is responsible for brand partnerships, media marketing and sponsorships.

Dr Frithjof Pils, managing director of Eventim Live, said: “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.

“Our partnership with RTL+ underscores our strategic objective to massively grow Eventim Brand Connect as a business segment in the near future.”

Rock am Ring has been held at the Nürburgring, a race track in Nürburg, Germany, since 1985. An offshoot Rock im Park was added in 1997. The festival has welcomed some of the biggest names in music over the decades including David Bowie, The Fugees, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica and Rage Against The Machine.

Frauke Need, programme director at RTL+, added: “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.”
