To support new musicians, singers and bands from all over the world with an original, own vibe, Bochum Total set up the category 'Bandecke'. Artists interested in getting a stage and playing a part in the 3-days-lasting Rockfestival, are welcome to fill out the contact form to apply. Here, they get a wonderful chance to present themselves with website, short essay, picture and demo. All of this then appears not only on the event page, but also on Facebook for thousands of people to see and hear.
While in former years attendances reached 1 million, only the heat led in 2015 to a decline in the number of visitors.
This year, Bochum Total takes place between the 14th and 17th July 2016. To be in on it, of course, again the broadcaster WDR with its 1Live stage.
