E-Tropolis Festival 2021 with Front 242, Covenant, Hocico, Solitary Experiments, Zweite Jugend, Diorama and many more

Attention: due to the Corona pandemic, the festival is postponed from 2020 to May 2021 and further november 2021! Tickets remain valid! 

Waiting on with the finest in EBM, Electro Pop and Industrial, the E-Tropolis Festival marks a mandatory date for the Dark-Electro scene. Sold out for the first time in 2018, we are looking back at the most successful E-Tropolis Festival so far while at the same time forward to setting-off another cracking celebration in 2020. “Better - Harder – Louder” is always the motto, also on 14th March at Turbinenhalle Oberhausen. Due to the Corona virus crises, the festival, originally planned for March, had to be postponed to June.

It is already the seventh time that the E-Tropolis Festival will take place at the Turbinenhalle in Oberhausen after the festival moved from Berlin to the Ruhr valley in 2014. And again the line-up is a fantastic selection for everyone who loves electronic music from the dark side! Headliners are FRONT 242, guaranteeing a splendid end of the festival day. As always, lovers of several kinds of electronic music will find their favourite bands within the line-up.

So it’s quite a line-up in a location which couldn’t be more perfect for this kind of music. The Turbinenhalle is a former industrial building, a hydroelectric power plant for the Ruhr-valley’s past steel industry, to be more precise. Quite apt for a festival for EBM, Synth Pop and Industrial! The move from Berlin to Oberhausen was also a smart move in other regards, since the Ruhr area is one of Europe’s largest urban agglomerations and a place which is a traditional stronghold of all things EBM, Industrial, Gothic and so on. Plus it’s rather close to Belgium and the Netherlands and thanks to the many airports there it's just a short flight from most European countries. You should definitely get your tickets in advance!

Corona Update
Unfortunately promoters had to strain your patience a little longer than expected - therefore they send you a big SORRY! One of the reasons it took this long was the exact definition of what a major event actually is, which kept them waiting much longer than they hoped for. The other difficulty was to settle a new date that has all areas of the Turbinenhalle available as well as the majority of the participating bands. Promoters are happy to finally announce the new date for the E-tropolis Festival: we will catch up on the postponed jamboree on 13 November 2021! With the exception of GRENDEL and RUINED CONFLICT all other bands of the 2020 line-up have already confirmed their appearance for the new date. Instead of the mentioned bands, [X]-RX and CHROM will step in. Of course all purchased E-tropolis Festival 2020 tickets remain valid for 29 May 2021. Promoters – as well as all bands and service providers of the festival – would be very grateful, if you hold onto your tickets for the new date.

Until 9 June 2020 you can still buy tickets to the new date for the regular price. Just visit the Amphi Ticketshop at https:/// From 10 June 2020 the price for the remaining ticket contingent will increase by 6.00 Euro per ticket.
