That's the slogan - anyhow it's the 30th birthday of the album "Blow Up Your Video" in 2018 - to start the AC/DC fan meeting Vol.8 on 19th and 20th October in the MusicHall in Geiselwind.

In addition there are 40 years of "Powerage" and 35 years of "Flick Of The Switch": Any are small anniversaries that would not have been possible without one special musician, the engine of the entirety: Unfortunately, this will be the first fan meeting since Malcolm Young passed away in November last year. That's why we dedicated this year's fan meeting theme to his memory.

So what you're gonna expect? On Friday, "WE SALUTE YOU" with Grant Foster from the UK on vocals will open the fan meeting 2018 with a thunderous set.

On Saturday, "HOLE FULL OF LOVE" - the Geiselwind veterans certainly remember them from the first meeting in 2010 - will bring the Bon-Scott era to life, afterwards STINGER will then enter the stage with a straight AC/DC set!

Additional to three thrilling gigs, there will be a full AC/DC program with a collectors' fair, tombola and many more on both days!

As soon as the pre-sale starts, it will be published here - today we are presenting our official poster for this year's AC/DC Fan meeting. Feel free to share it with your friends.

"Boarding completed": Band No. 3


Performances at AC/DC fan meetings, at the Bonfest in Kirriemuir/Scotland, last year Wacken Open Air, next summer at the recurrence of "Werner - Das Rennen": STINGER collected some impressive references.

As a proof of their skills they won the 1st prize in category "Best Hard Rock Album" and second place in "Best Hard Rock Band" attending the German Rock & Pop Award 2017!

In Geiselwind, STINGER will launch a pure AC/DC tribute program on Saturday night with three (!) Singers: Martin "Schaffi" Schaffrath, still thrilling the AC/DC fanbase on the mic for many years, Matteo Giovannone from Italy Bon Scott in voice and looks like no other - and Francis Crouse from the United States, appearing like Brian Johnson's younger brother on stage. STINGER will fire their guns in Geiselwind 2018 for a boisterous final!


Ticket presale for Geiselwind Vol.8 starts in spring and will be announced here.



...back in 2010: Some of you attended the first International AC/DC fan meeting in Geiselwind and were able to enjoy a treat that will be repeated in 2018:HOLE FULL OF LOVE are back for the second time this year: "A Tribute to 70's AC / DC" is describing exactly what the band is about: An ultra-high-voltage stage show representing consequently the rock'n'roll beginnings of early AC/DC. The band with frontman Dario often receive a kind of disbelief.Mainly performing in the Rhine-Main area, HOLE FULL OF LOVE are also on the road nationwide - they have already played as support for Foreigner and Rose Tattoo. To the International AC/DC Fan meeting the stage of the MusicHall is definitely ready again after 8 years for “HOLE FULL OF LOVE”!HOLE FULL OF LOVE open the fan meeting Saturday with a giant Bon Scott era song selection!




For the 8th AC/DC fan meeting in Geiselwind we thought about changing our appearance a bit: International AC/DC Fan Meetings in Germany had their roots already in 1988 - since 2010 they take place in Geiselwind.Focus is celebrating the complete history of this special band together with the world wide fan base: bringing us together again and again. That´s what we want to express right now, after the great loss of founder Malcolm a few months ago irretrievably an era came to end. Therefore, we have dated back the appearance of the fan meeting a good bit back leanding on the band’s name in the shape it appeared in 1976 in continental Europe for the first time

(Ticket presale for Geiselwind Vol.8 starts in spring and will beannounced here)



Geiselwind: We Salute You!


Flashback: third AC/DC fan meeting in Geiselwind, Friday October 18th, 2013, about 8:30 PM: a 16 year old guy dressed in school uniform enters the stage and worms a brute thunderstorm of sound out of his Gibson SG starting the weekend. The audience is thrilled, this young talent did a really great job and everyone is for sure: “Once we are goting tohearand see him again!”

Friday, October 19th 2018: Five years later NICK YOUNG will be on stage in Geiselwind again. After his pathway joining designated tribute- and coverbands today he plays the lead guitar in a band formed end of 2017 and appearing with one of the most authentic “Brians” on microphone: Grant Foster from London:

WE SALUTE YOU - a “young” band but with experienced members: You gotta expect a couple of decades pure Rock’n’Roll experience!

"Robert who…?!?" maybe some of the visitors are wondering what’s it about  this name in connection with AC/DC. Robert Ellis is a companion of the early AC/DC years - up close to the scene with his camera. Everybody knows the legendary black and white Angus photo or the motive showing him sitting on Brian's shoulders: Robert pressed the shutter release to conserve these moments for eternity - in Geiselwind he will answer your questions about the time he spent with AC/DC.

Friday will be opened by a band that rocked the shed in 2012: SpellBound from Germany thrilled that year and we are absolutely sure they will impress again in 2017. The fan meeting organization team had the chance to look at SpellBound's setlist: You may be sure getting some pearls pushing every fan's heartbeat!

So in 2017 we've got one "repeat offender" on the list. Both bands playing Saturday will be named soon: Both never played at the international Fan meeting - and it will be international again - that's promised!

Presale will start when all bands are named.

Presentation of the statue project in Geiselwind, 2012



Finally you did it! Congratulations to our friends in Bon's home town Kirriemuir / Scotland!
During the 10th Bonfest April 29 to May 1 the Bon Scott statue is going to be unveiled and from this day Kirriemuir will pay a bronze tribute to this remarkable son of the town.

During AC/DC Fan meeting 2012 the idea for a statue was initially presented and the kick-off for collecting money from fans and supporters was done with a simple plastic bucket. Kirriemuir, you hit the goal with a phantastic result: Have a great Bonfest-weekend!!
See you in Geiselwind in October - slàinte mhath!

To Bon!

Mark Evans

Special Guest: MARK EVANS!


It's a long way to the top (If you wanna Rock'n'Roll)
Anyone here who doesn't know the video clip? 40 years ago a truck was on it's way through Melbourne's Swanston Street - having a special kind of "load" on its platform: Bon, Angus, Malcolm, Phil - and Mark Evans on bass.
Five years have passed since Mark recorded an exclusive video clip with greetings to the fans at the AC/DC fan meeting in Geiselwind. This year a dream is finally going to become true: Mark Evans will be in Geiselwind!

This veteran from the early AC/DC years with Bon Scott - immortalized in the first 4 albums up to "Let There Be Rock" and to be seen on stage during legendary tours like "Lock Up Your Daughters", "A Giant Dose Of Rock And Roll" and "Let There Be rock" - will make his way around the world directly from Australia to Geiselwind!

Be assured that he is not only going to sign autographs and pose for photos - you will definitely experience him live on stage at the Music Hall!
