ASP bandA relaxing weekend filled with music

The M'era Luna is a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with friends or meet new ones during a relaxing weekend filled with music, culture and lots of activites that take place on the huge festival area (an old airfield): visit the medieval market, enjoy some hearty snack at one of the many food and beverage stands, or indulge in some shopping and get your favorite band merchandise before celebrating their performance live on stage. And when the concerts are over, you can keep on celebrating the night at the industrial disco that will pound your body with some serious electronic beats and bass. 

We have been to the M'era Luna on numerous occassions, and no matter if rain flood or scorching sun, we loved it every time! The crowd is great, lots of friendly people from all over the world enjoying a good time, and the headliners are always spectacular. We were there when they got the Sisters of Mercy to headline an open-air festival, live for the first time in ages! It was truly memorable.

And this years line-up looks just as spectacular! First of all there's Nightwish, the uncrowned kings of the gothic-metal genre. They're bringing their spectacular stage show to Hildesheim, so we're in for a gorgeous visual treat! And then there's shock-rock icon Rob Zombie, who will be playing the festival for the first time. Same for Einstrürzende Neubauten, the industrial legends who will also debut for the first time on stage at the M'era Luna. Those three acts alone are a guarantee for a good time.

But there's so many more!

Anne Clark (yes, you read correctly), Joachim Witt, In Strict Confidence, the list of legendary names has no end. And then there is ASP, one of our absolutely favorite bands. We have seen them live many times, and they're always great. Always.
