Preview: Bike and Music Weekend

Full Throttle in Geiselwind!

26 Years BIKE AND MUSIC WEEKEND is running its traditional 4-days schedule!
August 3. – 6. 2023, Autohof Strohofer, Geiselwind, Franconia, Germany, Autobahn A3 Wuerzburg-Nuernberg Exit Geiselwind

“Fire up” for the first August weekend in Geiselwind/Germany for the 26th time. And the event is back to its traditional four-day-program and with the established power-packet of action, music and party until dawn. Stuntshows, Bikeshow, Dragster and extreme Burnout action plus live music inside and outside make this event THE highlight in the international biker calendar! The German mega biker weekend is back and with it one of the best bike and US car shows in Germany presents top conversions and US cars at their best!


The bikeshow of BuM is run with an effort that is hardly surpassed: It starts with the decoration of the “show hall” and continues with 14 different classes plus “Best of Show” winners – elected by the audience. The distinctive mix shows all facets of motorcycle customizing from “Old School” to Streetfighter – and it’s not always Harley’s that come out on top in the respective categories – taking part is worthwhile here too!

Exciting newcomer to the extensive stunt show, drag racing and show program: Polish stunt pro Maciej “DOP” Bielicki, who thrilled the audience with his Sportster acrobatics at the 115th anniversary of Harley-Davidson in Prague! The reigning champion for the “long distance burnout” will bring new bikes and tricks to Franconia and has other hot stunt bikes in addition to his Harley-Davidson’s. Ricardo Domingos – the Portuguese top stunt rider – brings again his whole team to Geiselwind and will show his breathtaking show!

Burnout, Stunts & Dragster

A popular program point to “join in” and participate is the “Burnout Competition”, in which some of the craziest vehicles compete to smoke rubber. You would not believe what had already been “burning rubber” at Bike and Music Weekend: Burning caravan trailers (custom-motorized!), tractors, go-karts, bikes that spit fire from all openings and last but not least: a Streetfighter burning on the roof rack (!) of a Benz, with the “mother vehicle” spinning the rear wheels all along the show mile! To top even that: when the forward gears failed, they did it again in reverse gear!! Until now, the Bike and Music Weekend holds the Guinness World Record in the biggest “mass burnout” for motorcycles – and this record was created by the participating visitors!

Quite unique for any German event: two French jet dragster professionals Donald “Duckman” Pottier and Hervé Franquin will be “on fire”, heating up the audience in Geiselwind with their unique jet-powered vehicles. The full-time music program – “Stahlzeit” will fire-up the show on thursday – and the event schedule can be found online at www.BIKE-AND-MUSIC-WEEKEND.de, but being there is everything: Mark the first August-weekend for a visit Geiselwind/Franconia…

Sidenote for Bikers

Don’t be afraid of traffic jams, as the A3 is currently under major reconstruction on almost 70 km between Wuerzburg and Nuernberg: Leave the motorway one or two exits before and enjoy the quiet and scenic roads of Mainfranken and the Steigerwald forest! You won’t regret it! Camping on-site and short ways are a tradition at Geiselwind, which hosts concerts and events almost every weekend. But get a warning: This event is HIGHLY ADDICTIVE! You may BURN SOME RUBBER – and you will feel the urge to come back every year! See you at Bike and Music Weekend in August 2022!

Showtime! At the Bike and Music Bikeshow, many private builders compete. Privateers who rarely exhibit at any other show! Bike premieres by established German customizers or extraordinary international bikes take place at Geiselwind. The Knight Riders MC makes an extreme effort for the bike show to present the bikes properly and “in style”!

For the first time in Geiselwind: Polish stunt pro Maciej “DOP” Bielicki, who already thrilled visitors with his Sportster at the 115th anniversary of Harley-Davidson in Prague! The reigning champion for the “long distance burnout” brings new bikes and new tricks to Franconia. At the Motor Bike Expo Verona and various German dates DOP 2023 already showed his skills.
