"Americana in anderen Sphären - Leidenschaft kann Berge versetzen. Mit seiner Musikbegeisterung hat ein IT-Unternehmer nicht nur das erste genreübergreifende deutsche Americana-Festival ins Leben gerufen. Dietmar Leibeckes Passion ist sogar dabei, Oberhausen als einen der international gefragtesten Standorte des Genres zu etablieren."
The vibe is heating up, and so are ticket sales!
Get ready for an unforgettable summer experience at the Static Roots Festival. Here's a quick glimpse at how things are shaping up:
"You can find gold in the most unlikely of places if you look hard enough. Now, Oberhausen, a quiet industrial backwater in the Ruhr valley a few miles from the metropolitan splendour of Dusseldorf, wouldn’t be the first place you would look for an amazing two day americana and roots festival. Well, it turns out it is THE place to look"

"Oberhausen’s Static Roots Festival is now well-established in the European Roots calendar and for a growing itinerant community of music fans it has joined High Wycombe’s Ramblin’ Roots, Kilkenny, and the London and Nashville Americana Fests as essential stopping-off places. "

Discover the Magic of the Ruhr Valley with Static Ruhr Tour 2024
As we gear up for another exciting Static Roots Festival, we're delighted to offer the unique Static Ruhr Tour 2024, a journey that showcases the rich cultural and historical tapestry of the Ruhr Valley. This tour is not just an excursion; it's an essential part of what makes Static Roots Festival a truly one-of-a-kind experience.
Static Ruhr Tour 2024 - A Glimpse into Germany's Industrial Heartland
Our tour begins with a visit to the majestic Villa Hügel in Essen, the 19th-century mansion built by industrialist Alfred Krupp. This historical landmark, with its 269 rooms, valuable tapestries, and remarkable library, offers insights into the legacy of the Krupp family and the industrialization of Germany. It's a journey back in time to the roots of Germany's industrial might and the stories that shaped the region.
But that's not all! Following the footsteps of last year's successful collaboration with Dylan Earl on the boat in Duisburg, we're excited to announce a special musical treat for 2024. As you unwind at the charming beer garden of "Heimliche Liebe," a talented musician will grace the stage with an intimate set, adding another layer of cultural immersion to your tour experience.

"…for sheer unadulterated Americana joy then one need look no further than this unassuming spot in Germany’s Ruhr district, the small, post industrial town of Oberhausen, home to Static Roots. Now in its fourth year, Static Roots has grown from an initial invite only event to being sold out for the first time .“
