Live Nation Germany's Marek Lieberberg will co-promote the 2016 editions of the twin festivals he founded
By IQ on 29 Jan 2016
The twin festivals, which Lieberberg founded in 1985 and 1993, respectively, are owned by Eventim via its live music subsidiary Medusa Group, which owns Lieberberg’s former company, Marek Lieberberg Konzertagentur (MLK). Lieberberg left MLK for the newly formed Live Nation Germany on 31 December 2015.
The festivals take place concurrently from 3 to 5 June – Rock am Ring in Mendig on an old airbase and Rock im Park at the Zeppelinfeld in Nuremberg. Combined they have an attendance of over 150,000.
Lieberg spoke about his decision to leave MLK, which he founded in 1987, for Live Nation at Eurosonic Noorderslag earlier this month.
