Nacht Der Helden 2018 - THANK YOU !!

02 Jan 2019

Guys - this was most amazing and plain superawesome. Two nights, two cities in the geman north and center, two great venues, four rock'n'rolling bands and fitfteenhundred heroines and heroes partying like hell ... we can only whisper a sore throated Thank You ! You guys were the reason our first very own winter indoor festival, the 'Nacht Der Helden' (= Night of Heroes) sucessfully made it into its second year. We started 2017 in Oberhausen and we dared to export and extend that same festival in 2018 to Hannover - and it became a crazy amazing party in both locations !! That huge, stadium-type Heldmaschine flag in Hannover not only silenced our René, but it both impressed and humbled everyone to the max. It came to life as a secret fan project, took weeks of tedious hand labour, and was secretly smuggled into the venue. We had NO idea...  And it even was very well orgnaized how to involve almot the entire audience in unfolding and waving that thing on top of a thousand fan hands - without any form of rehearsal ..... Hats off, guys, that was simply un-effing believable !! An experience we won't forget any time soon...

René hat die Fahne gesehen - er kann nicht mehr...

Biggest thanks have to go to our crew: Techs Lars, Nico and Jens did a truly fantastic job ! With almost no sleep between shows (true for all of us by the way), but to the tic at all times on stage - including the best sound and light we've had to date ! Turbinenhalle Oberhausen and Capitol Hannover - you and you house crews were as amazing ! We've hardly experienced festivals that went so smooth - you broke records there ! And wthout our managing Mario there would be no 'Nacht Der Helden' anyway. Thanks man, it was such a great ride ! Last not least we'd like to thank fellow rockers apRon, Maerzfeld and Stahlmann for their highly energetic muscial contribution - a festival can become really special when all participating bands are actually good friends ! 

But the true heroes of the night were none other than YOU guys ! You made the entire 'Nacht Der Helden' what it is: An awesome, big rock'n'roll party for all of us - together. BAAAAM !

Special thanks to Holger Bär for the following Pics (aexcept where indicated - those are either from 'Schwarze Szene nazifrei' or from Björn Klemme / Pixelreisen.) Simply great - looking at them makes us want to do it all again NOOOOOW !  


And that is the reason why this coming 2019 summer we'll celebrate a 'Nacht Der Helden' summer special at Festung Ehrenbreitstein in Koblenz: 

On August 24th Heldmaschine will headline in the amazing medieval castle venue, featuring fellow rockers Maerzfeld, Tanzwut, Unzucht and Joachim Witt. Plus aftershow party with DJ Arsenique, DJane Linegra, DJ Der Schulz and DJ Krischan Wesenberg (RoterSand). Now if THAT is not THE killer lineup !!! Presale tickets for our summer NDH are available now ! Wooohoooo !!



And here is a little gallery... so you can get the bigger picture ! apRon started us off : 




Next up were Maerzfeld ....



About time for Stahlmann ...



And finally - Heldmaschine ....



For the final round, René invited his fellow singers back on stage. And on they went together - covering David Bowie's 'Heroes', including german lyrics. 

It looked like that particular one-time-only - experiment was enjoyed very much by the frenetic crowds in both Hannover and Oberhausen !


After the show it was time to have a beer or two with the fans. Once again impressive tattoos were spotted - here is a 'Weiter!' to be seen ....



Thank you al so very much, guys. We'll see you back soon !!!
