The Basics

9-13 August 2017
Eschwege, Germany

Open Flair is a rock music festival in Eschwege, Germany. Now with over 30 years experience in the business, the festival has built a devoted fanbase of rock music lovers. 

As it has developed and grown, more and more internationally renowned acts have made their way onto the lineup; but the festival still maintains its dedication to supporting and booking the very best German bands, who continue to find themselves in the majority across the long weekend.

But with recent editions featuring performances from the likes of Sum 41, Rise Against, Enter Shikari, Biffy Clyro and even Iggy Pop, the festival is more than capable of competing on a global scale.
