Hard not to love

Maifeld Derby is a multi-genre music that takes place in Mannheim, Germany.

Focusing predominantly on the spectrum of indie and rock music whilst offering a selection of the best in electronica, over 70 international artists both contemporary and established arrive to play across MVV Reitstadion's four stages.

Dubbed 'the lover's festival', Maifeld Derby is hard not to love with the likes of Deerhunter, Jon Hopkins, Slowdive, Primal Scream, The National, St. Vincent, and Metronomy playing in previous editions, attracting the hippest crowds in the south of Germany.

Add in plenty of quirks and surprises within the festival grounds, and with the festival announcing they're taking a break in 2020, this unmissable edition will have something in-store for all kinds of festival-goers.
