The Hurricane Festival, also just Hurricane, is a music festival that takes place in Scheeßelmarker near Bremenmarker, Germanymarker, usually every June. It is promoted by German private music television channel VIVA, which belongs to Viacom, the MTV Network's parent company, as of 2004. The festival and its guests are generally associated with the alternative part of mainstream music, although the festival has been becoming more and more mainstream over the years.

The Southside Festivalmarker, often referred to as the daughter of Hurricane, takes place on the same three days in the very south of Germany (contrary to Hurricane, which is in the very north). Together they're a twin festival, since they are on the same days and usually have the same lineup with only few exceptions.


In 1973, the first festival was held in Scheeßelmarker, the place where today's Hurricane takes place. It was called "Es rockt in der Heide" at that time (literally translated: It's rocking the heath) and was attended by 52,000 people.

At the "First Rider Open Air" in 1977, fans caused damage of more than a million marks when riots broke out, because only five of the announced 23 bands could perform—a huge scandal was uncovered few days later. The organizer was forced to make a long pause.

In 1997 rock returned to Scheeßel in the form of the Hurricane Festival, with numerous bands performing in front of 20,000 guests. It has taken place on the Eichenring, a motorcycle sand racetrack, ever since. Audience size peaked in 2008 with about 75,000 guests; from 2002 to 2006 between 40,000 and 60,000 people came. By this time (2007 and 2008) about 75.000 (young) people watched the gigs.
