Let’s do this again in 2020. Tickets are on sale already!
With a heavy heart we needed to find a new location for 2020, which gives us a new home, since we still don’t know if the Rockfabrik can stay or not.
We all hope the club can continue, but since this is not 100% sure we needed to find a new place.
We managed this now and we will announce it soon.
In the meantime, we need to inform you that the VIP passes for our 10th anniversary are nearly sold-out. So if you need one you better hurry up.
VIP passes and Tickets are available at the festival website only.
Please welcome from Norway: the mighty STAGE DOLLS!!!
We are proud to bring back one of our favourite bands. It will be their first gig in Germany since they played on our festival back in 2011!
Please welcome from the UK: CATS IN SPACE
We are proud to present this great band for their, to this date, first show ever in Germany. They are the shooting stars of the british AOR scene. Their newest, already third, studio album “Daytrip To Narnia” is a masterpiece if you like your AOR more bombastic. If you like big sounds like STYX, ELO or ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, this must be your new favourite band. Please check them out!
Please welcome from the USA:
It is an absolute honor for us to have this gentleman on our festival. He had a huge world-hit with “No Easy Way Out” from ROCKY 4 Soundtrack fame. His first two records are Melodic Rock milestones. Currently he is working on a new Melodic Rock masterpiece. Don’t miss this very rare performance in Europe!
Please welcome from Czech Republic: BLACK TIGER
We are always happy to give new bands a chance to promote their music. This year it is the No.1 Melodic Rock band from the Czech Republic, BLACK TIGER. They released their self-titled debut album in fall 2018. The album was produced by HARDLINE and HUNGRYHEART guitarist Mario Percudani.
Please check out the album. It is a great one!!!

We know it is not cool to bring the same band two years in a row, but you, the H.E.A.T FESTIVAL fans, kept going in writing email, messanges, facebook comments how you’d love to them again.
When we met singer Johnny Gioeli on his tour with Axel Rudi Pell two weeks ago we told him about your massive request. Since he enjoyed the show last year very much and he loves to play at Rockfabrik the deal was done in less than a minute.
We are proud and happy to have this fantastic band on our Festival again!!!
Please welcome from Netherlands:
This dutch AOR band will play their first show ever in Germany. They started their career in the mid-nineties with records like “Livin’ It Up” and “Break Away” which are still some favourite tunes of ours. Followed by some more records until today they got very popular in Japan. TERRA NOVA will release a new album in 2018. We are looking forward to this very special act!
Please welcome: JEAN BEAUVOIR
The multi platinum songwriter and recording artist will play a set of greatest hits from his entire career including all the hits from his bands VOODOO X and CROWN OF THORNS as well as songs he wrote for bands like KISS or THE RAMONES. Not to forget his great works as a solo artist!
