The History of Southside Festival
The Southside Festival, also just Southside, is a music festival that takes place near Tuttlingen, southern Germany, usually every June. It is promoted by German private music television channel VIVA, which belongs to Viacom, the MTV Network’s parent company, since the end of 2004. The festival and its guests are generally associated with the alternative part of mainstream music, although the festival has been becoming more and more mainstream over the years.

After the great success of the Hurricane Festival, FKP Scorpio decided to make a similar event in the south of Germany. In 1999, a former military airbase (Neubiberg bei München) in Neubiberg, near Munich, was selected. In 2000 the festival was moved to another former military airbase, this time in Neuhausen ob Eck, which is near Freiburg and Stuttgart.

Because of the relative proximity to other countries (France, Austria, Switzerland and Liechtenstein are all less than 100km away), the audience is very multinational. In 2003, the calculated maximum capacity of around 40.000 people was reached and the festival has been sold out well in advance since.
