A Homage to the King of Rock 'n' Roll

At the European Elvis Festival guests from all over the world celebrate their idol with famous cover bands, Elvis movies, Cadillacs and much more.

European Elvis Festival

The next European Elvis Festival takes place from 13th to 15th August 2021.

Who wouldn't want to travel back in time when Elvis lived? Once a year, always around the time of his death, August 16th, the peaceful spa town turned into a sea of Cadillacs, petticoats and Elvis quiffs. Rock 'n' roll is the whole town's attitude to life and sound.

With numerous events, well-known artists, guided tours with anecdotes around the locations in Elvis' "European Home" and of course a lot of live music the weekend will be a memorable experience. Every year guests from all over the world come to celebrate their idol together. But the festival, which has existed since 2002, is not only something for fans of the King. The special spirit invites young and old to an unforgettable visit. Discover Elvis' "European Home" and celebrate the King of Rock 'n' Roll with guests from all over the world.
