SBOA – here we come!

Sun or rain?

Summer Breeze Open Air, short SBOA or Breeze, is in sight. Last year showed two faces, sun and rain. Rain meant 32 hours of constant rain on very dry and hard ground. Thus a part of campground, the infield, T-Square and Battlefield were covered with a slippery mud. After the weather disaster of Wacken, this year all metalheads hope for better conditions on this Franconian Metal Festival. Let’s have a look at the after movie 2022:

BUT what might be more important, here is the preview 2023:


Curious for 2023 now? Got no ticket so far? There only are a few left over at the nearly sold out Open Air. Grab your full five days experience ticket or get a day ticket according to the time table and your taste now or never.

Running Order

If you are only able to spend a limited time of a day on the Breeze here is the running order with the time table.


Got no plan?

You are not sure about the distances? I can only tell you, ways are shorter than at Wacken though longer than at Rockharz Festival. Take a look yourself at the maps.


As you can see, there are four stages and several camp grounds. There are plenty of food and beverage stalls and a large merch area. Thus you won’t die on starvation and you won’t remain naked. All you got to do is plundering your account according to your demands and conditions.


C’mon let’s go

Now get ready for Summer Breeze Open Air 2023, it opens doors to the camp grounds at Black Earth at 10:00 and already starts on Tuesday 15th at 17:00 with Despise on the Ficken Stage. It ends on Sunday morning at 03:00 with Perturbator on the T-Stage. Let’s head bang and Rock and Roll all night and party every day in between like there is no tomorrow. And don’t miss Metal Yoga in the morning.

SBOA – here we come!
