The Union des Jeunes Meechtem (Machtum youth union) has announced that the twelfth and last edition of the "Rock de Schleek" festival will take place on Friday 19 August 2022 at 18:30.
The festival takes place every year in the context of the German-Luxembourgish "Wäin-Happening" (wine happening) event, organised by Machtum (Luxembourg) and Nittel (Germany).
Rock de Schleek offers artists from Luxembourg and the Greater Region a stage at the "Schliikeplaz" in Machtum, in south-eastern Luxembourg. The organising committee has chosen a mix of newcomers and more well-known bands, such as Toxkäpp!, Dapple Rosé, Tubadiesel and Boy from Home (replacing The Cookies), for this last edition. This year, for the first time, Pinkspace will also be joined by a DJ.
In addition to BBQ food, the organisers will serve pasta with homemade sauce, including a vegetarian option, as well as beer, wine and crémant.
Tickets for the festival cost €10 when bought in advance (presale) or €15 at the door. Further information and presale tickets: https://www.facebook.com/rockdeschleekoriginal.
This year, the official opening and an art exhibition will take place on Thursday 18 August 2022, with the festival itself set for the next day. Members of the Union des Jeunes Meechtem will then tidy up the site once the festival ends so that the Entente des Sociétés Meechtem can prepare for the wine festivities, i.e. the 15th Wäin-Happening and the 36th Wäischmaachen (wine tasting) events, on Sunday 21 August 2022.
Visitors can take a boat connecting the villages of Machtum and Nittel on both sides of the Moselle river throughout the weekend. Last year, around 8,000 people embarked on thie trip.
