With the KNOCK OUT FESTIVAL, we created our own indoor winter festival focussed on hard rock and heavy metal.
Established in 2005, it´s taking place in December in our hometown Karlsruhe, southern Germany.
Among many others, we hosted such high class acts as WITHIN TEMPTATION, BLIND GUARDIAN, HAMMERFALL, EDGUY, DORO, IN EXTREMO, POWERWOLF, SABATON, HELLOWEEN and sold out the venue capacity of 5.000 tickets several times.
Since 2015 we established the KNOCKDOWN FESTIVAL, taking place the same weekend.
With a much heavier sound and a lineup from the metalcore and hardcore scene, the festival is targeting a younger audience and enjoys increasing popularity.
So far, we welcomed bands like STICK TO YOUR GUNS, ESKIMO CALLBOY, CALIBAN, CALLEJON, NORTHLANE, THE AMITY AFFLICTION, LIONHEART, SUICIDE SILENCE, DEEZ NUTZ, just to name a few.
