    Campgrounds opening times

    Sun- und Greencamp opened from 13.07.2022

    Dear Zappanale Fans,
    we receive many questions about the opening of the camping site.
    Here´s the information for all of you.

    Sun- and Greencamp will be open from Wednesday, July 13th, 2022. If you arrive earlier, you will have to switch to other campsites, as we can only make the sanitary facilities available from Wednesday.

    We would also like to inform you that there will be no Dixies on the campsites. For this we are enlarging the sanitary area in front of the festival site with toilet containers.

    Your Zappanale Team

    You can come here with the Molli

    Timetable for the "Special Stop"

    The Molli stops again at the festival area. We would like to thank the operators of the Mecklenburgische Bäderbahn Molli GmbH for setting up this special stop, which is only available for the Zappanle.

    We wish you a good trip!

    Zappa plays for Bach – „Just play my music“

    St. Katharinen, Hamburg

    At the Stockholm concert of his last tour in 1988, Frank Zappa met two musical natural talents from Sweden: then 17-year-old Mats Öberg and the drummer Morgan Ågren, 20. He invited them on stage that evening to perform "Big Swifty" ...

    Zappanale live - rockradio.de

    Zappanale has been broadcast live by rockradio.de since 2010. And we will be there again this year: from Friday to Sunday you can follow the concerts of all three stages (including the exhibition) in image and sound on the screen or via our mobile app.

    Robert Martin

    We are particularly pleased that Robert Martin will be back after a long Zappanale break.

    He will perform as special guest with several artists.

    2022 we look forward to

      Zappa Denkmal, Joe´s Garage, Störtebeker, Torture, Zappanale
      (Gedicht-improvisation über diese Worte mit Refrain)

      Movin`to Bad Doberan – you can come here with the Molli-Bahn
      In Anlehnung an des Meisters Wort kommen wir gern an diesen Ort,
      der -unweit der Ostseeküste- geziert wird durch `ne Bronzebüste.

      Zum Zappa-Denkmal, zentral gelegen, wir fans uns doch stets gern bewegen.
      Und dann mit der Bahn zurück – denn ab 14 Uhr gibt`s meist Musik.
      Die Zappanale ist unser musikalisch`Mekka – da hält mit kein Störtebeker.
      Und auch andere Ostsee-Attraktionen, die zu besuchen sich wohl lohnen,
      locken uns nicht in gleichem Maße wie des Meisters Bronzenase:
      Sei es Sandstrand, Kloster, Aal und Barsch – wir kommen mehr für Joe`s Garage.
      So jedenfalls unter Idealbedingungen – doch derzeit gibt es andere Schwingungen:
      Die Corona-Torture allerorten schließt viele kulturelle Pforten.
      Eine Zappanale, wie mensch sie kennt, würd` rasch zum superspreader-event,
      fällt auch schwer uns der Verzicht: halt nur Vernunft die Welle bricht.
      Wir hoffen auf sinkende Inzidenzen – und sehen uns *wieder bei schrägen Tönen, wilden Tänzen
      Und dann:
      Movin`to Bad Doberan – you can come here with the Molli-Bahn

      Svenja G.

      Klaus Störtebeker fuhr nach Osten, in Doberan sein Bier verkosten.
      Das Zappa Denkmal stand noch nicht - in Joe´s Garage war auch kein Licht ...
      Er wünschte sich das ganz Banale : ein Festival wie " Zappanale " !
      Mit Laute, Harfe, Geige, Horn bringt Zappa einen erst nach vorn.
      Doch die Tortur währt immer furt (😅), er hoft auf späte Neugeburt !

    • 3. Winner
      Sascha, Miserblen husos

      Und wieder ein so langes Jahr 
ganz ohne Zappanale,


      Obwohl - sie lief im Internet 
vom Start bis zum Finale!


      Ob diese Torture jemals stoppt?
 Kein Mensch kann's wirklich wissen,
 jedoch die Zappanale Flaggewird man wieder hissen!


      Solange noch das Zappa Denkmal, 
Kamp und Molli stehen,
 solange wird's das Festival der Freaks und Spinner geben!


      Dank Störtebeker's flüssig Brot, 
dank Krach aus Joe's Garage,
 dank Schweiß und Tränen der Arf-Crew, 
dank ZFT's Blamage,
 gibt's nächstes Jahr ein Wiederseh'n
 vielleicht auch ohne Testschein.


      Wir werden auf der Rennbahn steh'n 
und

      Music wird the Best sein.

    • poem of Dagmar N.

      Gestern Nacht in Joey's Garage
      Wat 'ne peinliche Blamage
      Nach viel Störtebeker Bier
      War ich ziemlich nicht mehr hier
      Mit Zappas Denkmal und Piraten
      Unterwegs zu wilden Taten
      Zog ich um die Blocks...
      The Torture never stops

    • poem of Bernd V.

      Ich bin der Bernd Vahle,
      gern auf der Zappanale,
      frischer Rentner, Scheiß auf den Wecker,
      trink lieber ein paar Störtebeker,
      as the torture starts without
      so I love to hear it loud,
      alles andere ist Schnarsch,
      deswegen Joe’s Garasch,
      am Zappa-Denkmal tu ich knien
      bis zum Juli fünfiziehn.

    • poem of Guillermo L.

      Here we go, yes indeed…
      At Zappanale in Bad Doberan,
      Where the torture finally stopped
      And piddle on a thousand times thanks
      To the Störtebeker beer, uh!
      I saw a handsome Frank´s monument, 
      And had a fuzz at Joe´s Garage, 
      And time seems to run fast 
      And I always want to come back.

    • poem of Daniela Z.

      Frank Zappa, ja der war genial!
      Nicht umsonst steht in Bad Doberan ein Zappa Denkmal.
      Auch gibt es dort Joe's Garage
      Das wäre für die Stadt sonst auch eine Blamage
      Ist sie doch bekannt als "Zappa Town"
      Bei allen Fans, Diversen, Männern und Frauen,
      Die wie ich gerne zur Zappanale kommen.
      Hast auch du meinen Traum vernommen?
      Das "the Torture stops" in Zweitausendzweiundzwanzig
      Wir uns wiederseh'n, fit und noch nicht ranzig
      Und wir feiern Zappa's Musik und das Leben.
      Was würde ich alles dafür geben!
      Ich hoffe und träume weiter, bis klingelt der Wecker
      Und trink mit euch allen schonmal ein Störtebeker.

    • poem of Thomas G.

      ...von mir für Tim Palmieri….

      Angelehnt an Excentrifugal Forze
      (Die ersten 4 Zeilen als Gitarrenintro singen.)

      Denke ich an Joe`s Garage,
      dann stellt sich mir sofort die Frage,
      ob die Zeit sich wirklich ändern tut,
      bis zur nächsten Zappanale.

      Die Wolken sind sehr klein,
      wie ich so durch die Lucken schau,
      `ne Pandemi die wollt ich nie,
      auch nicht in meinem Bau.

      Es sind schon viel zu viele Tage,
      auf Sport da hab ich auch kein Bock.
      Möchte lieber gute Musik hören
      and the torture has ever stopped.

      Und da sind die lieben Leute
      aber heut ha`m sie den Blues.
      Auch sie woll`n lieber Bahn fahr`n,
      mit der Molli schön und gut.

      Ich seh wie sie sich freuen
      und sie rufen laut: Juhuu
      Und steh`n am alten Zappa Denkmal
      mit `nem Einzell-Hammondorgel-Organismus unter`m Schuh.

      Und ich ruf mal, meinen Freund Fraki an
      und frag: Hat es denn Sinn?
      Er weiss doch - wie die Zukunft ist,
      denn er war da ja schon drinn.

      Mit Jürgen, Tim und Peter, trinke ich ein Störtebeker.
      Und mit Zappa haut`s auch hin,
      wenn wir die Grenze überschreiten,
      zwischen später und vorhin.

    • poem of Axel H.

      Ode an die Zappanale

      Steh´ ich in Bad Doberan bei Zappa´s Denkmal
      zur sommerlichen Abendstunde,

      treff mich bei kühlem Störtebeker in Joe´s Garagein Freundesrunde,

      Dann ist die Torture vorbei und Frank sei Dank an die Freunde und Gönner alle,

      es ist endlich wieder Juli und damit Zappanale.

    • poem of Stefan K.


      # 31
       
      Stellt euch vor,
      es würde wahr,
      die Zappanale 
      schon wieder
      nur digital.
      Keine Blumen
      und Fans 
      am Zappa Denkmal,
      kein Störtebeker 
      in Joe’s Garage, 
      stattdessen Lockdown
      wie im letzten Jahr.
       
      Deshalb lasst euch impfen,
      damit im neuen Jahr
      die ganze Torture
      bald ein Ende hat

    • poem of Martin Sch.

      Zappa Denkmal - ja suuu schee.

      Joes Garage - da mou i hii.

      Störtebecker - Dooch und Nachd

      Die Torture iss vorBEI -

      Zappanale ist‘s - JuchEI!

      Your comments on Zappanale 30.75 live video stream

      Below you can find the comments posted by our audience during the live stream in July 2021.

      The Zappanale Team says thank you!

      We never expected to repeat one more time an online event after 2020. Thank you for your comments, you are the best audience ever!

      Stay healthy, see you next year again on the festival ground because

      music is the best!


      Below you can find the review of Zappanale #30.75:

      Journey / Overnight stay

      Overnight stay

      (Sun- and Greencamp are open from 13.07.2022)

      On the terrain

      When arriving at the terrain, the question arises: Sun- or Greencamp? Each has its advantages. The Sun-Camp is brighter during the day, the GreenCamp darker at night. The on-site guides will certainly help you decide.

      Usually the campsite is equipped with sanitary facilities from Wednesday to Monday. Please check the current announcements.

      Accommodation

      You prefer a real bed? Bad Doberan and the surrounding region offer accommodation in all price categories. The Zappanale takes place in a summer vacation region, so you have a clear advantage as an early booker. Please ask at the tourist information.


      Directions
      by train

      Whether you are coming from Hamburg, Berlin or Bratislava, heading for Rostock is the right decision. If Bad Doberan is indicated as the next stop, this is the time to prepare for the exit. When you arrive in Rostock, get on the next regional express in the direction of Wismar, which you then leave in: Bad Doberan.

      From there you have several options: Traditionally with the Molli train, it stops directly at the festival area, or you can get a ride from one of the easily recognizable Zappanale fans. You can meet them at the Zappa monument or at the nearby supermarket - both are five minutes away from the train station.

      by car

      Your navigation device will surely bring you to the racecourse (54.124677,11.869512) in Bad Doberan. If you don't have a navigation system: Exit Bad Doberan, direction Bad Doberan/Heiligendamm.

      • from direction Hamburg/Hannover:
        A1 towards Lübeck, at the Lübeck interchange take the A20 towards Rostock, exit Bad Doberan.
      • from Berlin:
        A19 in the direction of Rostock, at the Rostock interchange take the A20 in the direction of Lübeck/Wismar, exit Bad Doberan.

      In Bad Doberan - at the first major crossing with traffic lights - turn right in the direction of Kühlungsborn/Heiligendamm and pass the Frank Zappa monument (about 100m after the crossing).

      The racecourse is halfway between Bad Doberan and Heiligendamm, first you have to pass the festival area. If you are not the first, this is easy to recognize. In the following traffic circle you take the last exit and can slowly switch to live music mode.

      Rideshare

      If you would like to make yourself comfortable on a back seat, look for a ride share. Either via the community or e.g. here: drive2day.de.

      by plane

      You arrive by plane? Then Hamburg oder Berlin (Tegel/Schönefeld) are the airports from which Bad Doberan can be reached the fastest. By train it takes about 3-4 hours from both airports.

      There is a smaller airport in Rostock (about 50 km from Bad Doberan), which is mainly used by domestic airlines.

      Zappanale #31 Newsletter

      Zappanale is back? yeah yeah yeah

      I couldn't jump enough into the icy Baltic Sea times to cool down my highest anticipation of this perspective.

      After 2 years of planning and organisation, the Zappanale Festival will happen again „live“ on the racetrack of Bad Doberan.
      This was the starting point:
      Zappanale Team: Zappanale is calling!
      • Technicians?

        Not available..

      • Toilets?

        The provider of mobile toilets "Dixie" was sold.

      • Tents?

        The provider "Marketing Direct" has already lent everything to corona test centres.

      • Pagodas

        Available, if Zappanale provide workers to build them up.

      • Site manager?

        "I am retired and prefer to go on vacation."

      • Accounting staff?

        "I better stay with my husband"

      • Backstage catering?

        "We decided to turn to carpentry during the pandemic."

      • Ticketing?

        "I am working now as a veterinary assistant."

      • Accommodation for the bands?

        The Hotel Friedrich Franz has been sold and is being renovated.

      • Stage and sound?

        Broken down.

      • Bike rental?

        "No, I don't have enough staff anymore" (the company was working hard after our call and OstseeBike will provide again bikes during our festival)

      • Driver service?

        "No, I am now out..."

      Wow, that felt really like another kind of pandemic.

      But we made it in the meantime and found a solution for every problem! All stumbling blocks have been cleared out of the way and we are moving with giant steps and full of anticipation towards Zappanale #31.
      What else is new?

      There is no more haggling over costs, it's all about availability. The industry in charge of the organisation of large-scale events is fully absorbing the market of festival service providers.

      We, "the other people" will still find a way to solve all this issues.

      My wife Tracy dropped out since November due to health issues. It made me realize what it means to be a househusband.

      As for the bands, the program is set, unfortunately Dweezil doesn't want to come to Europe until 2023. John McLaughlin (who celebrated his 80th birthday some weeks ago) doesn't want to drive 900km by bus to Zappanale.

      But we are very much looking forward this year to Colosseum, Fried Dähns Potenzial, The Mike Keneally Report and Raoul Petite which will all play a fantastic and unique festival program this year. And of course, many other artists will be our guests. Check out the program on our website, you’ll like it.
       
      We had as well some changes within our supporting team at the festival ground. Our new team colleagues will certainly keep and improve the Zappanale flair for the pleasure of our guests.
       
      However, the consistency of the change will not be very much noticeable during the festival.
       
      Störtebeker launches a new sort of pale organic beer. We were already allowed to taste and like it very much. Let's see how you will taste it.
       
      The international airlines within Europe are again in operation again, our musicians have already booked their flight tickets diligently.
       
      There are many discussions about Bad Doberan’s racetrack in local and regional politics and in public. Despite its re-establishment, the racing club association as the operator of the racetrack is again insolvent, the area became forfeited. But we will also master this issue for you and make the camping-site and the festival ground fancy for you.
       
      We are enthusiastic and looking forward to finally celebrating the upcoming 31st Zappanale live together with you again.
       
      In the meantime, we will test the water quality of the Baltic Sea for you every day until you take over from us in July at the latest. Having this our mind we send you cool greetings from the Baltic Sea.
