Great, festival. Absolutely wonderful here [...]. It has kept its wonderful charm. Also the fairest prices far and wide! I recommend every Metal fan to have been there once.
So wohl hab ich mich bisher auf keinem Konzert gefühlt! Perfekt organisiert, tolle Bands und überall nette Leute :)

Ich hatte einen großartigen Tag auf dem Open Air mit tollen Bands einer sehr guten Organisation, tollem Wetter und grandioser Atmosphäre! Baden In Blut, stay Metal und bleib dir treu, wir werden uns auf jeden Fall wiedersehen \m/
Our Stage Area. This is where METAL is. Enjoy the music with a cold beer in your hand. Or fill the beer into yourself and headbang till you get thirsty again.

BADEN IN BLUT is Passion
uilt and etablished in 2005 with 350 visitors, BADEN IN BLUT Festival became the biggest underground heavy metal festival in south-west Germany during the past decade.
By underground, we mean it. We are just a bunch of crazy metal heads organising this festival.
t is our passion to build something unique we can be proud of. Seeing and meeting our metal heroes whose fans we are ourselves. On our very own stage. With proper sound and lighting. A festival we would love to visit.
Commercial success is not our first goal.
ecause there are
no stakeholders or investors. We need to satisfy only ourselves. The feedback of our fans and visitors tells us that we're on the right way..
THANK YOU for your support!
