Rockpalast (Rock Palace) is a German music television show that broadcasts live on German television station Westdeutscher Rundfunk (WDR). Rockpalast started in 1974 and continues to this day. Hundreds of rock, heavy metal and jazz bands have performed on Rockpalast. Some acts were recorded for broadcast and for retail sale. All-night marathon shows called "Rock Night" (Rocknacht) were produced once or twice a year from 1977 through 1986 and simulcast throughout Europe via the Eurovision network of TV broadcasters, thereby reaching around 25 million listeners on average.Rockpalast is involved in several German pop, rock and underground music festivals, once sponsoring the Bizarre-Festival.
Not all of these acts were recorded and broadcast. A list of the recorded gigs is readable on the Rockpalast homepage.
