What a party!
the 13th Forstrock Festival is history – it was truly unforgettable. We thank everyone who was part of it – on, in front of or behind the stage.
We will see you at the next Jamel rockt den Förster on the 21st and 22nd of August, 2020.
Concerning the ticket pre-sale: Please be patient. Right now we are setting up a system that prevents faking tickets and also allows people to buy tickets who do not have permanent online access. Until the end of 2019, you’ll probably only have the opportunity to register as prospective participants. The real pre-sale will then start at the beginning of 2020. We’ll update you also via facebook!
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.

Patron of the festival: Manuela Schwesig and till 2019 President of the state parliament MV Sylvia Bretschneider (†)

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.
