Grand Nicholas 2018


Ultimate Summer Party

The Open House of the Extraclass

This year, on 15.06.2019, we will be flying the rags for the 19th Jokerfest. The daily program starts as usual at 10.00 a.m. and has some special features for you! Included are free test rides with the latest Harley-Davidson models, live customizing and the production of parts in our forge, live painting and an international Ride-In Bike Show.

Last year Swen Weber won the trophy with his swallow conversion. There were 41 participants who made their bikes available for voting and presented them live on our stage. You have an individual custom modification and would like to present it at this year’s Jokerfest? Simply apply via our contact form!

The evening program will be rocked this year by Status Quo and as support of The Baseballs. Unfortunately tickets are already sold out! If you are still looking for a suitable place to stay, or if you would like to plan your journey, you can also find our contact and directions here.

Journalists can easily register for this event via our press accreditation form!

Who only thinks that Harley-Davidson models are welcome in our forge, thinks wrong! From Metric to Dragstyler to Oldschool Bobber, every motorized two-wheeled vehicle is welcome! So, you have an elaborately rebuilt bike and want to show it off? Then you've come to the right place.

Besides fame & honour you can of course win a lot of cool prizes, which we collected together with our sponsors for you. In addition, there are the much sought-after trophies for the top places & professional photo shoots of all participant bikes. The scene photographers Dirk Behlau and Ben Ott will be there to show the bikes in their best light. For the 19th Jokerfest the Huber Verlag with the cult magazine CUSTOMBIKE will again sponsor the Thunderbike Ride-In Bike Show. Maybe you can even admire your bike in an upcoming issue of CUSTOMBIKE?

The big test drive campaign HARLEY® ON TOUR

Also this year you can find the Harley-Davidson on Tour Truck at our Jokerfest. Over 20 unique Harley-Davidson models are waiting to be tested for free and extensively! 48 hp models for beginners can also be found among the models.

Helmet, jacket and gloves are available on request. All we need is a driver’s license and an identity card from you. All dates and places of the Harley On Tour Truck can be found here, so get on your bike!

Get ready! Status Quo will rock the Jokerfest!

It’s time to get the dusty air guitar out of the cabinet now! Only three chords and an unmistakable chorus are needed to take the “young” generation with you. With “Rockin all over the world” Status Quo brought the probably best known version of this hit onto the market, which can at least be played without text certainty. Hits like “In the Army now”, “Caroline” and “Whatever you want” are only small excerpts of this success story.

Even after more than 50 years in the music business, the men of the cult band never tire. Last year they sang their hymns in front of 75,000 metalheads in Wacken. On August 17th this year Status Quo released two live albums: Down Down & Dignified at the Royal Albert Hall and Down Down & Dirty at Wacken.

The status quo for us is that this big bang band will be our next guest at our Jokerfest! Ticket sales start now, so spit it out and get your limited tickets online, in our store or in the roadhouse.

Do you want to chat with other Jokerfest guests, or invite your friends? Our Facebook Event is the right place to do so.

Support by The Baseballs

Status Quo is accompanied by The Baseballs at our Jokerfest! Just in time for the start of the Rock’n Roll Trio’s anniversary tour, six of seven concerts in Germany are already sold out. Due to the great demand further shows for summer 2018 have been confirmed. Under the tour title “The Sun Sessions – Live 2018” the internationally acclaimed vocal trio celebrates its 10th anniversary on stage. The band’s 15-show anniversary tour will take them through Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Holland and Spain. THE BASEBALLS take pop hits to the rockabilly genre and have placed several of their cover versions in the top ten of international pop charts. Their cover hits include Rihannas “Umbrella“, Britney Spears’ “Hit Me Baby …” and 50 cents “Candy Shop“. On stage, THE BASEBALLS will be accompanied by excellent vocals for handmade music and spectacular live shows.

THE BASEBALLS is an award-winning rock’n’roll trio consisting of the singers Sam, Digger and Basti. Since its founding, the trio has implemented a cover concept that quickly opened international pop charts and concert halls for the passionate Rockabilly musicians from Germany: THE BASEBALLS arrange contemporary chart hits into retrospective Rock’n’Roll cover versions. The productions of the three musicians effortlessly transfer various styles into the Rockabilly genre. But the singers don’t just combine hiphop, R’n’B or radio pop with the authentic vintage sound of the 50s, but also a multi-layered fan base. Rock’n’Roll and pop fans of several generations visit their concerts all over Europe. Thus THE BASEBALLS internationally stand for a rare bridge between obviously different pop cultures.
