After two years of extensive Corona break, the organizers of the Fusion Festival in Lärz (Mecklenburg Lake District) can go full steam again next week. The responsible regulatory office gave the green light and handed over the relevant notifications the night before, a spokeswoman for the authority said on Wednesday of the German Press Agency.

This means that the festival on the former military airfield can again take place as usual with up to 70,000 guests. It is scheduled to start next Wednesday and last until the following Sunday.

The merger failed in 2020 due to the corona crisis, and in 2021 there were three smaller events in the summer with a complex test concept.

The festival is one of the largest alternative music and theater festivals in Europe. Due to its proximity to the capital region, it also attracts many visitors from Berlin and Brandenburg
