It first sold out its old 25,000 capacity on two occasions, upgraded to a 28,000 capacity and sold out three times, and has now sold out its new 30,000-capacity for the last two years.

Maack told Pollstar the festival being situated on an island in the Fühlinger See, a huge lake near Cologne, meant the audience was still comfortable despite the scorching temperatures.
