What a party!
Our „Forstrock” has celebrated the 15!
We thank the cool acts, the audience, the information booths and workshops and the breakfast-crew from RgR very much! Also the team of about 100 people which enable the festival by working in the backstage and building the festivalground.
We are now planning the festival 2023. Cool acts (and of course, we won’t tell you, who’s performing), a campingground and interesting information booths and workshops.
Nazis originally aimed to cultivate the village of Jamel to be a “national-socialist model village,” deliberately seeking tenants and landowners who identified with their views. Jamel rockt den Förster began in 2007 when Birgit and Horst Lohmeyer, farm owners in Jamel, refused to tolerate the intolerance. Jamel rockt den Förster exists to show resistance against the Nazi occupation with Democracy and Tolerance being its founding principles.
Find more information about the festival on the History-page and current news on Facebook.
Patron of the festival: Manuela Schwesig and till 2021 President of the state parliament MV Birgit Hesse.
Here you can read what there is to discover on the festival grounds in 2023. The free workshops always take place on Saturday after breakfast and before the start of the stage program (12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.).

The target audience of „Jamel rockt den Förster“ consists primarily of politically interested people who support and celebrate democracy. In this respect, the festival is not comparable to commercial music festivals.
Since 2017 we didn’t announce the line-up until the festival date, so that everyone who is not only interested in the fantastic bands but also in the political message of the festival had a chance to get tickets. This concept worked! Many thanks to all our understanding and dedicated visitors.
