Taking place from May 30 to June 1 this year on the grounds of Mannheim’s Maimarkt area, Maifeld-Derby plays host to host more than 60 bands from the international indie rock scene each year.
This is where the best music line-up meets some of the best audiences and atmosphere in Europe. Maifeld Derby represents authentic sound and creativity. In its short existence the event has earned a reputation as a discoverers’ festival, attracting not only a strong regional audience, but a sizeable international audience too. Socially conscious from the very beginning, in 2012 Maifeld Derby was awarded for “Rookie of the Year” in the area of sustainability at the European Festival Awards.
