Home to a special music mix
The original Oktoberfest in Munich is home to a very special music-mix, that is performed by professional folk-bands. The mix consists of super-hits, roughly 2/3 of these being German language, and 1/3 English language. So, yes, there is a slight chance that you will be able to sing them, too! Some of the German songs are typical "drinking-songs" that noone would want to hear outside an Oktoberfest tent, but still they all are widely known and popular! One speciality to the fest is the fact that every year a new song pops up that has emerged from the summer season. This song quickly captures the audience, and everyone demands this song to be played. (In 2014 it was "Atemlos durch die Nacht" by Helene Fischer.) This is then the "Wies'n Hit" of that year. Needless to say, that song finds its way into the songbooks of the coming years as well! In order to help you to prepare for the fest properly, please find a list of the 63 most popular songs at Oktoberfest. While this list can not contain all the songs played in the tents, you can be certain to hear most of the songs during a long day (and night) at the fest.
