FOR DETAILS ON LINE-UP AND TICKETING PLEASE SCROLL DOWN!!!
Due to some discussions on the net we feel obliged to announce a little statement on our festival.
We are NOT doing a resp. « the » ROCK-IN-OPPOSITON FESTIVAL (« RIO FESTIVAL GERMANY ») and don’t intend to « market » our festival with that term, for it is credited only to MICHEL BESSET’S baby, who has been kind enough over the years of its existence to let us participate in and benefit on the RIO’s booking politics.
Without the ROCK-IN-OPPOSITION FESTIVAL in france the FREAKSHOW ARTROCK FESTIVAL wouldn’t have been able to present all the great overseas artists to its visitors: SLEEPYTIME GORILLA MUSEUM, KOENJIHYAKKEI, MIRIODOR, MIRTHKON, UPSILON ACRUX, KOREKYOJINN, LE SILO, HAPPY FAMILY, etc.
Even the participation of our longtime musical friends from belgium, chamberrockers PRESENT has only been made possible via their various invitations to the ROCK-IN-OPPOSITION FESTIVAL….
And we don’t want to be the ghouls benefitting from the burial of the legendary ROCK-IN-OPPOSITION FESTIVAL by luring the RIOs regulars into our realms. so let’s say it with MONTY PYTHON: « You’ve got to think for yourselves! You are all individuals! You don’t need to follow anybody », and you don’t have to follow the lopsided recommendations of some FREAKSHOW ARTROCK FESTIVAL regulars!!!!😀 Nevertheless, you will certainly be welcomed heartily as some of the RIO-regulars who dropped by through the years may be willing and able to confirm…

THIS IS THE LONGEST RUNNING GERMAN FESTIVAL DEDICATED TO ECLECTIC MUSIC OUTSIDE THE MAINSTREAM, FEATURING DEDICATED AND ACCOMPLISHED MUSICIANS FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD.
FOR LONG YEARS (STARTING IN 2007) WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO PARTICIPATE ON THE BOOKING POLITICS OF OUR GREAT « SOUL MATE » FESTIVAL, THE ROCK-IN-OPPOSITION FESTIVAL IN CARMAUX/ALBI IN THE SOUTH OF FRANCE, BUT OBVIOUSLY THE 2019 EDITION IN LYON/BOURGOIN-JALLIEU MAY HAVE BEEN THE FINAL CURTAIN FOR THIS GREAT MUSICAL EVENT.
DUE TO OUR FINANCES (ALL EXPENSES WILL HAVE TO BE PAID WITH THE INCOME OF THE TICKET SALES) WE WILL CERTAINLY NOT BE ABLE TO INVITE GUESTS FROM OVERSEAS AND MAYBE BE A SUBSTITUTE FOR MICHEL BESSET’S BABY, BUT IN CASE SOME OF THE REGULARS ARE LOOKING FOR ANOTHER MUSICAL EXTRAVAGANZA, WE WILL CERTAINLY WELCOME THEM HEARTILY!!!
We once again are about to collect some of the most daring, adventurous, accomplished, dedicated and uncompromising musical artists active in contemporary rock music.
The line-up is not complete yet, but we are proud to announce the already confirmed participation of the following artists:
FR: POIL (fr)
LE GRAND SBAM (fr)
FREE HUMAN ZOO (fr)
Since our longtime belgian (and US) friends PRESENT, who gave a great show at the 2019 edition of the french ROCK-IN-OPPOSITION FESTIVAL, are up and running again resp. will be meeting, rehearsing and recording a new album before (hopefully) playing the japanese edition of the ROCK-IN-OPPOSITION FESTIVAL, we are hoping for another of their mindblowing performances on the second day of our festival and keep you posted on further proceedings.
The 2019 venue, FELIX-FECHENBACH-HAUS, that has been warmly welcomed by the audience despite the missing of the cosy and intimate atmosphere of the BLAUER ADLER is not available for our 2020 edition, but we have once again been lucky to have access to another great venue, that we never used before:
