Prophecy Fest takes place in a natural cave formed in the Old Stone Age – Balver Höhle. According to Germanic Saga, the blacksmith Wieland had his workshop in the cave. Balve, Germany, is situated in the center of Germany between Dortmund, Cologne, Frankfurt and Hannover.
Unlike other festivals, we will not start with the most “unknown” artist and end with the “headliners”. To us, they are all headliners and were chosen as we expect amazing performances. Therefore, the running order will reflect what we consider the optimum in terms of dramaturgy and suspension.
Standard 3-day-pass incl. programme book – 129 Euro
Comfort supplement 60 Euro.
Camping ticket 15 Euro.
Members of the two highest tiers of the currently re-launched PROPHECY CLUB will be able to attend the festival in all versions free of admission charge.
