It is the largest festival of rock music in Europe, which is conducted on the Formula 1 race track in the German city of Nuremberg.

You can listen to such performers as Alt-J, Alma, Enter Shikari, Foo Fighters, Gorillaz, Snow Patrol, 30 seconds to Mars, Marilyn Manson, Creator, and many others.
The festival has one feature. One who often visits Rock am Ring knows the legend of Helga. This name appears on the walls of the city every year, and it is often shouted in the crowd. Once, a guy lost his girlfriend Helga in the crowd. He searched for her everywhere and woke quite a few people with his cries. So, nowadays, shouting Helga’s name is the Rock am Ring tradition.
