The road to Rock am Ring

This is the story of a German band from Cologne, who made it to one of the biggest festivals in Germany.

gigmit collaborated with Warsteiner to book Akuma Six for a slot at Rock am Ring 2022! The Japan-influenced rock band killed it on the stage of the festival, achieving the oath they made in 2008. Playing Rock Am Ring is a dream for so many acts in Germany. Today, we tell you how gigmit together with Warsteiner helped a band’s dream come true.


Getting on stage at Rock am Ring with Warsteiner

After a two-year break, the legendary Rock am Ring festival was held again in Nürburgring. Numerous well-known bands like Muse, Green Day, Måneskin and The Pretty Reckless as well as newcomers like AKUMA SIX rocked the stage of Rock am Ring this summer.

Back in September 2021, Warsteiner, in collaboration with gigmit, launched an amazing band contest. Artists were encouraged to apply to get a unique opportunity to perform at the stage of one of the biggest and widely renowned rock music festivals in Europe — Rock am Ring. After receiving hundreds of applications, AKUMA SIX was selected to blow the rock stage this year!


“Akuma Six rocked the stage and crowd. I am so proud of them performing the hell out of their bodies and souls. What a great fit and success for the Warsteiner Bandcontest.”

— Marcus Fitzgerald, CEO gigmit

Crazy outfits, loud crowd, mix of trap metal, rock and rap, a manga show in the background — AKUMA SIX set the stage of Rock am Ring on fire this year.

AKUMA SIX: Crazy Music and Unique Style

“We don’t take ourselves too seriously”- AKUMA SIX


We really enjoyed the mix that guys bring into the stage: the quiet guitar unexpectedly changes to the sound of sawing, the screams that come out straight from hell, samples from movies and from the gaming world, combined with a Japanese influences.

All these things can be found in every song, making an AKUMA SIX show a unique and unforgettable experience.
