Southside Festival is a huge rock and pop festival in southern Germany. Sister festival of Hurricane in the north, Southside pairs incredible lineups with a distinctive festival character to form one of the high points of the summer.
Unlike its northern counterpart, Southside tends to revel in great weather to match its impressive lineups.
Green Day, Linkin Park, Blink-182, Mumford & Sons, Deichkind and The Prodigy are just a few of the biggest names from recent years, though the rock and indie focus is also offset by superstar DJs like Axwell ^ Ingrosso, Boys Noize and crowd favourite Fritz Kalkbrenner.
East of Tuttlingen and in the valley of the Upper Danube, Take-Off Gewerbepark is a former military base for the Germany Army Aviation Corps.
BY TRAIN: The best station to get the train to is Tuttlingen, from where the festival will be operating a shuttle service to and from the festival site.
