    After the first day of the festival at “Rock im Park”, the emergency services drew a positive interim balance.

    “Compared to 2019, we are seeing a noticeable decrease in operations and assistance,” said the spokesman for the Bavarian Red Cross, Sohrab Taheri-Sohi, on Saturday. “We appreciate that people are more prudent and careful to be able to enjoy the event after two years of the pandemic.”

    From the day of arrival on Thursday to Saturday morning, the paramedics had to provide help around 970 times. There were around 50 transports to the hospital.

    After two Corona breaks, the rock twin festivals will rise again on the Pentecost weekend – “Rock im Park” around the Zeppelinfeld in Nuremberg and “Rock am Ring” at the Nürburgring in the Eifel (Rhineland-Palatinate). According to the organizers, more than 160,000 music fans will be celebrating at the two festivals by Sunday. Around 70 bands were to perform on three stages.

    On Saturday, performances by the US rock band Green Day, the German pop musician Jan Delay and the Italian ESC 2021 winner band Måneskin are planned in Nuremberg. “Incredibly keen on Rock im Park today,” wrote a visitor on Twitter around noon.

    A storm warning had briefly caused unrest on the first day of the festival, Friday. In the evening, as a precaution, spectator stands were cleared and the performance of the Beatsteaks was postponed. But then it stayed with temporarily heavy rain.
