To sum it up: Two days, three bands and a schedule based on AC/DC for both days. Visitors from all over the world come to Geiselwind - men, women, families, old people, young people, big people, small people - just everyone. They all share one similarity: the love to AC/DC and their music.
Since when takes the AC/DC fan meetings place?
The very first international AC/DC fan meeting took place in Nauheim (close to Frankfurt am Main) in 1988 and was hosted by the former AC/DC Fanzine Daily Dirt. Many AC/DC fan meetings took place all over Germany since then. Since 2010 the fan meeting takes place in the MusicHall in Geiselwind. In the section "history" on this website you can get some impressions from the last years.
Who organises the AC/DC fan meeting?
The organisation team is mixed together by various AC/DC fans from all over Germany, with the ambition to create an event, where the global AC/DC family can meet and celebrate together.

Is there a t-shirt from the AC/DC fan meeting?
Every year, there is a t-shirt. In order to estimated the correct amounts and sizes, they need to be pre-ordered. You can do this directly when ordering tickets in the section "tickets" on this website, or in the shop at the Eventzentrum Geiselwind. Attention: The pre-order period ends usually four to five weeks before the fan meeting starts, thus we have enough time for the production.
We are a band and we want to play at the AC/DC fan meeting - what do we need to do?
How the bands are chosen?
Three bands on two days and only AC/DC: The organisation team pays attention to the playlists of the bands: as few song repetitions as possible, a program from the Bon Scott era, a program from the Brian Johnson era and besides the standard songs, also special songs, just like some which where never or rarely played by the original. This means the bands should be fine with rehearsing new songs, or waive songs, they have on their playlist usually, to provide variety. As it is an international fan meeting, we try to get bands or at least some musicians from foreign countries. Showelements, ountfits and instruments can be close to the original, but do not need to. The important thing is audience and band enjoing each other. No perfection is demanded from the band, but still, one should be skilled in one's trade. Bands which proved their entertainment are likely being booked another time, as we try to get at least one band every fan meeting, which already thrilled the audience.
