Highfield is a a German rock and indie music festival, held for three days each August in Leipzig.
Now over 20 years old, the festival has welcomed the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Queens of the Stone Age and NOFX since its first edition more than two decades ago.
Hugely respected across the continent, Highfield pairs a top-tier rock and indie lineup with a beautiful setting by taking place at Störmthaler See: a large manmade lake complete with beaches and luscious green countryside.
Held on the peninsula of an abandoned mining lake near Leipzig, the scenic beaches and shimmering waterfront makes for a blissful festival setting.
