Germany's alternative twin of Southside
Hurricane Festival is a multi-genre staple of the German music calendar. Along with its sister event, Southside Festival, Hurricane has been at the forefront of European rock and alternative festivals since its first edition in 1997.
Evolving with the times and with its audience's increasingly eclectic music taste means that Hurricane now covers much more of the genre spectrum than it used to.
2015's stand-out shows from Florence and the Machine, alt-J, Paul Kalkbrenner and deadmau5 confirmed both Hurricane's modern festival character, and its place among the continental elite.
