OUDATE is a relatively young combo from Dresden, whose band members have already collected their spurs. Accordingly, their first release is skilfully and true to style as a tape! This foursome will present these and other hits to us in the summer of 2022. We are more than excited.


Our tip for couch surfing

After browsing, stop here and there and finish reading. Another nice edition. But what should we say, with THE TOTEN CRACKHUREN IM KOFFERRAUM, ALARMSIGNAL, LOS FASTIDIOS or FCKR there are a lot of great bands who have already been with us or will finally come. In addition, something about the BRÜCKENKOPF TORGAU, from around the corner!


We said that we will still work properly on Line-Up so far. The current result is another classic in it! Really great, THE OPPRESSED are coming to us in 2022 for one of their super rare shows. So the band, the anti-fascist Oi! co-invented, so to speak. Totally cool, we look forward to a hole in the knee!



Marc's henchmen had us banned for several months. But now we are back with a new profile to show what we have already prepared for you.

Without blushing and exaggerating, we are already pretty satisfied, but will still fine-tune, do and do. Because two years of abstinence have left their mark.

At this point the request to support us: invite friends, acquaintances and others to the Facebook-site so that our fine festival gets at least the attention it had been before.



Nope, we are not starting from zero in 2022, but we're happy with you that we have a whole bunch of great bands that will shake the riding arena next year.

What now looks like a compensation for the last two years, promises to have much more in the hindquarters.

Spread the word: the countdown is running!

Dear BTF-community, the pre-sale is open!

the last few weeks and months have been a fuck-up marked by highs and then deepest lows for all of us! But that will definitely change. But before we come around the corner the day after tomorrow wth the first announcement for 2022 and push the boat out, we want and have to clarify something organizational - the tiresome issue of tickets.

If you are unable to attend the new date July 21 - July 23, 2022, you can register the tickets you have purchased from us for return by e-mail by December 31, 2021. Please send us a message to and you will receive information about the process. Anyone who has purchased their ticket at an external advance booking office authorized by us must contact them regarding the return by the end of the year.

Finally, for a special treat: We give all former ticket holders * who have already returned their entry ticket due to the cancellations in 2020/2021 the opportunity to purchase their old ticket again at the retail price at the time. You read that right! Anyone who would like to respond to our suggestion can also send us a short email with the relevant information and name to


We are now tired and exhausted - what a fight, what a cramp!?! We hardly dare to pronounce it, but we have to admit that there will be no BACK TO FUTURE / GLAUBITZ OPEN AIR in September.

It hurts us tremendously to tell you that we are repeatedly postponing all of our babies. New date: 21.-23. July 2022! With our original decision to reschedule the festival, we hoped to be able to hold a safe event in September without any worries. The protection of everyone involved in this event is and will remain our claim. We spent months tinkering with possible concepts and model projects, ultimately everything for the cat!

Great hope on the way to "cultural freedom" was based on a high willingness to vaccinate and the associated political relaxation in matters of open air permits. We were apparently too hopeful and naive ...

The presale tickets from 2020 and 2021 will be carried over to July 2022. The line-up in the coming year will be awesome, that's for sure. We now have to let everything sink in and process it ourselves and will get back to you with more information in the coming days.

Dearest, your BTF crew


It's great that this unique band was able to switch to September and we are excited to see which selection of the many hits will end up on the song list. But the real reason why we are re-introducing The Shocks is that the shooting gallery is now operated by Jan. As a kid punk, he blasted the skins to ashes at Heilbronx Nuklear, but at Modern Pets it sounded a lot more accomplished.



"Making Punk A Threat Again" could be a good slogan to accompany the band. Waivers are, in the best and classic sense, something like an anarcho HC punk band that openly point out various grievances that our not so great society has to offer.

The band goes musically, In terms of content and songwriting, skilfully tackled the matter. You could talk about something like an insider tip.



Yeah, also Cheap Stuff, the five-man from Orange County Dresden released a great album in 2020, with which they will come back to us again - it goes by the name "Kings And Pawns". A home game, so to speak, for the guys with the forward-pressing songs, which are sure to sing along with some of the lyrics.

It's pretty great to know that a combo like this is coming from around the corner.
