(Ex) Mu­sic Cir­cus Ruhr

Mixed cir­cus ring

Ober­hausen was nev­er known for its good camp­ing in­fra­struc­ture. But all the more for the party tents, which at­trac­ted guests in fant­ast­ic quant­it­ies on week­ends. On Es­sen­er­straße, for ex­ample, the Blue Moon, with "Old Daddy" boss Edgar En­gel re­spond­ing to the gi­gan­to­mani­ac tent hype and es­pe­cially the "Mu­sic Cir­cus Ruhr". At the sta­di­um of Rot-Weiß-Ober­hausen stood the 5,000 square meter gi­ant tent of the Mu­sic Cir­cus Ruhr. In its peak in the middle of the 90s, the park­ing lots around the gi­ant tent were full, the guests ar­rived not only from the Lower Rhine, but also from Hol­land and Bel­gi­um. No won­der - even funk le­gend James Brown played his "Sex Ma­chine" un­der the tar­paul­in.
