It is the first day of the 825th birthday of the harbour of Hamburg, and the first visitors arrived round the midday time. The weather was Hamburg-like with a low breezy and grey sky accompanied with some rain drops. But this won’t discourage anybody to rock the next three days on the Hafen Rock on the terrain of the famous fish market right next to the harbour. The Shanty choir WINDROSE opened the Astra Hafen Rock Stage traditionally like the years before.

The only good thing on the weather change was that the storm was gone and now it only rained for a bit. But with the time and ongoing day, more and more people joined the terrain to watch the show. SUIZIDE QUEENZ are also a young band from Hamburg. Next to Eve Elektrique, Andy ...
