Metropolis Festival 2019 (30 June)

The Metropolis Festival is a unique event. No free festival manifests itself so specifically with unknown, but always promising talent. Since 1988 Metropolis has been introducing a large audience to striking, innovative and surprising music of high quality. The one-day festival offers a stage to talented bands and acts that are about to break through. It offers a quest through the exciting line-up of international artists with a live reputation. You should not just listen to good music, you should experience good music live!
