Music fans come to Bochumer city centre in the Ruhr region every year in July. That's because the popular music festival Bochum Total takes place then. Be there when over 75 acts take to the stage in the city centre. Experience exciting up-and-comers and well-known bands over a period of four days. Alongside the shows on the four open-air stages and the indoor stage, there are also a wide range of activities off stage so there’s something for everyone.
Bochum Total always welcomes newcomers
This event initially took place in 1986 - since then, Bochum Total has developed into the popular attraction you see today. In the meantime, it has become one of the most popular festivals across Europe whilst in terms of content always remaining true to its roots. Rock and pop are of primary importance, however innovative ideas and musical experiments always have a place in the line-up. This open-mindedness towards new groups means that the event organisers often book bands who are on the way to the top of the charts with this city festival in Bochum before they become known across Germany. The most prominent of these bands include, amongst others, Silbermond, Wir Sind Helden, Seeed and die Donots.
Look forward to exceptional music acts and great atmosphere during Bochum Total. Best of all: Entrance to the festival is free!
