Hurricane Festival is one of Germany's biggest rock and pop festivals. Twinned with the younger Southside Festival, Hurricane has been at the top of its game for over two decades.
After a first edition in 1973, Hurricane took on a new name and came back with a vengeance in 1997, and has only gone from strength to strength ever since.
Huge artists and a die-hard following put Hurricane among the country's favourite weekends, with a really friendly and inclusive atmosphere one of the highlights.
Eichenring, in the far north of Germany, is an open green space, which includes a sand-surface racing ring as well as more than enough room for the festival site.
Bremen is the closest airport to Scheeßel.
FROM BREMEN AIRPORT: The best way to travel from Bremen Airport to the festival site is by train. In total, the journey will take around 1 hour 15 minutes, costing roughly €30. Take one of the regular trams from the airport to Bremen Hbf station, then the hourly Metronom line train to Scheeßel.
Children 6 or under are not allowed at Hurricane, and those 18 or under must carry written permission with them at all times. This can be downloaded from the festival's official site.
