Germany's alternative twin of Hurricane
Southside Festival is a an eclectic great of the German music festival scene. Started in 1999 – two years after its northern sister, Hurricane Festival – Southside has grown and grown, expanding its lineup coverage as well as its capacity over the years.
Southside's traditional emphasis on the alternative rock and indie worlds has opened up to electronic and slightly more mainstream music, creating a festival that caters for all tastes.
Mumford & Sons, Arcade Fire, Foo Fighters and Florence and the Machine have all headlined in the last few years, and Southside lineups are as reliably star-studded as they are respected in Germany and across Europe.
Operational as a military base for the German Army Aviation Corps until 1994, the festival venue is immediately east of Tuttlingen.
Tuttlingen is located in the valley of the Upper Danube, with the river passing straight through the town.
Take-Off Gewerbepark, Neuhausen ob Eck, 78579, Germany
