2️⃣ Ghost Woman: Let yourself be enchanted by the deep, earthy vocals and the driving rhythms of this duo. They will take you on a psychedelic motorcycle trip straight to woodstock 69`.
3️⃣ Karloff: These guys are the bastards of the night. You won't be able to resist being drawn into their straight forward sound walls. If you are into Mantar, Midnight or Venom join these black metal punk rituals at Hoflärm.
4️⃣ Speck: Their songs are like a vortex that pulls you into another reality. Let yourself be captivated by their blend of endless space rhythm and dreamy guitar solos.
5️⃣ Earth Tongue: This duo will blow you away with their unique sound. They combine raw energy with dreamy melodies, creating a magical atmosphere that will grip you and never let go.
But we halbe also some sad news: Unfortunately Elephant Tree had to cancel their Gig due the health issues. We wish them only the best and hope to see them soon back on stage! A replacement band as well as another Co Headliner will be announced soon!

Hoflärm - 5th Anniversary - GO FOR THE RIDE
Join us this year for the 5th stony ride to Hoflärm 2023! We are very happy to announce the first bands of the line-up today! We also announce the start of the presale for 05.02.2023 at 5 pm!
Started in 1993, we are more than proud to welcome Acid King! The band around Lori S. looks back on 30 years of band history and will bring their new Album to Marienthal in August.
Mars Red Sky and Elephant Tree will drive you into the sunset with their all time classics like Strong Reflection or Wither! We're already feeling the vibe around the yard!
A very special highlight we are looking forward to is Messa. The Italian doom band combines the raw and rough sides of doom with the warm summer evenings of the Hoflärm.
Just last year, stoner legend Nick Oliveri visited us with his band Stöner. Nick liked it and had reason enough to come knocking on our door again in 2023. We are looking forward to Mondo Generator, Mr. Oliveri!
We also have visitors from Berlin again, on the one hand we are happy to welcome Rotor, our tractors are running at Vollast! But on the other hand also Grin! We can't imagine a Hoflärm without Jan, Sabine and Andre! In 2021 the three played with Earth Ship, in 2022 with Slowshine. This year, however, only Sabine and Jan will be on stage, Andre will mingle with the audience while Grin plays their crushing riffs.
Black Lung and Madmess will bring you through our hot afternoons with their heavy psych rock!
Doom over Marienthal: Eremit and Old Horn Tooth will be blasting the darkest riffs into your ears! Live Slow Die Old!
Last but not least, we are happy to welcome 2 bands that have played at the Hof in the past! Swan Valley Heights and Kvinna!
Kvinna was the band that opened the first Hoflärm, who of you was there and can remember?
Stay tuned for even more announcements! We have more Bands, as well another Headliner & Co Headliner to announce!
