Chaos Surrounds Metallica Concert in Munich: Parking Lot Closed, Navigation System Fails

As our on-site reporter notes, problems continued around the second Metallica concert in Munich on Sunday evening. The issues primarily affected the two-day tickets, which seemed to have disappeared from the Eventim app, only retrievable through complicated navigation within the app, causing confusion at the entrance. Additionally, network issues prevented visitors from loading their tickets, forcing them to search for a signal near the entrance. Despite these challenges, the weather cooperated, with ideal concert conditions at around 20 degrees Celsius and no forecasted thunderstorms.

Munich – Metallica rocked the Olympiastadion on Friday night with resounding success despite the rain. The hopefully equally spectacular second show is set to follow. However, fans driving to the event are facing a challenging journey. As of 1:30 PM, the large parking lot at the Olympiastadion, known as Parkharfe, was fully closed, as reported by our on-site reporter and confirmed by the Munich police upon inquiry.

Chaos Around Olympiastadion – Parking Lot Closed

Chaos reigns around the Olympiastadion. Cars are at a standstill. No movement forward or backward. The parking guidance system, which was supposed to prevent such situations, still indicated available spots at 1:45 PM. The closure only became apparent to drivers when they encountered the police blockade.

According to the police, surrounding parking garages, such as the one on Dostlerstraße, remain open. Additionally, the parking guidance system has since been activated. Nonetheless, traffic jams are currently building up on Dachauer Straße, Lerchenauer Straße, and the Mittleren Ring.
