After a long and dull winter HER DAMIT - Festival (Engl. "Bring it on") finally rings in the open air party and festival season of 2016 on the island of Rugia in Germany – embedded between walls steeped in history, pinewoods and the baltic shore. After its premier in 2015 the festival now invites to (re-)visit the festival playground around the so- called "Colossus of Prora" with its 2 outdoor and 2 indoor floors and an exquisite line-up of top-noch and up-and-coming techno and house artists.

Besides the line-up it's the location itself makes HER DAMIT worth a visit: A reflection of the delusion of grandeur of the Nazi-regime towers overs the east coast of the island of Rugia – the "Colossus of Prora". Once planned as a holiday resort for over 20.000 "fellow Germans", after the war used as a military base by the Sowjets and the national army of the GDR, Prora is nowadays more and more in the firm grip of financial investors and luxury renovation. Having a festival taking place here seems rather odd at first. But it is this contradictory and conflict-laden history that gave the impetus: It is our generation that has to create something beautiful here – BRING IT ON!
You can either pitch up your tent at the camping site or book a room in the youth hostels in Prora (right at the festival site) or in Binz (neighbouring town, approx. 5 km to the festival). Additional nights on Thursday and Sunday are also available – both at the camping site and at the hostel.
SEE YOU ON THE ISLAND!
