Hurricane & Southside Festival: The Best Photos from 2019

Hurricane & Southside Festival: The Best Photos from 2019


Last weekend saw the return of Germany's gargantuan rock 'n' roll romps Hurricane Festival and Southside Festival, proving to be a record-breaking weekend for the twin festivals.

Over 120,000 visitors flocked to both Eichenring in Scheeßel, Lower Saxony (Hurricane) and the Gewerbepark in Neuhausen ob Eck, in Baden-Wuerttembergon (Southside) each day. Roughly a footfall of 380,000 over three festival days, no biggy. 

Foo Fighters, Mumford & Sons, Tame Impala, The Cure, Macklemore, and domestic faves Die Toten Hosen all topped both festival bills; that's ostensibly two headliners of international stature per night. No wonder there's an insatiable demand for the historic festival favourite, year after year.

Slightly envious we missed out, we've put together the best of the weekend's action to soothe our collective anguish:
