A village of barely 6,000 inhabitants in Germany's Lower Rhine plays host once a year to the brilliant Haldern Pop Festival. Haldern Pop is one of the most renowned and established festivals in Europe. Offering an auditory treat of electronic, folk, pop and rock, the organisers and investors work hard every year to pull in some of the best acts, and an incredible atmosphere. Haldern Pop is all about quality, independence, and an accentuated readiness to experiment. Developed over many years, the festival's character emphasises the broad trust which international artists, visitors and media invest in this event as it continues to mature.
