We are proud to host the first, ever HOFF-TOBERFEST in celebration of Germany’s national icon and favourite non-German, David Hasselhoff!
In celebration of his new film, Killing Hasselhoff, we have an entire evening themed around the one and only, legendary, Hoff. A twist on our original Oktoberfest celebrations, Hoff-toberfest will include our traditional German brass band playing David Hasselhoff’s classic hits; exclusive clips from his new film; more Hoff-related memorabilia than you can shake a float at; plus steins of delicious cold beer and German food.
IT IS GOING TO GO HOFF!!
David Hasselhoff’s new film, comedy Killing Hasselhoff, sees the legend star as himself – a man with a target on his back. When Chris (Ken Jeong) a struggling nightclub owner, fails to pay back a debt to a loan shark, he decides that in order to get the money; his only option is to kill his entry in an annual ‘who will die this year’ celebrity death pool; David Hasselhoff.
HOFF-MANIA REACHES IT’S PEAK IN THE UK AS HOFF-TOBERFEST LAUNCHES IN LONDON
On 29th September, the UK’s first ‘Hoff-toberfest’ gathering will take place in London; capitalising on the UK and Germany’s love of David Hasselhoff (aka The Hoff), and the release of his new film, Killing Hasselhoff. Taking place at Bavarian Beerhouse in Old Street, London, Hoff-toberfest will see fans of David Hasselhoff travel to the venue for a night of traditional Oktoberfest celebrations with a Hoff twist.
Like The Hoff himself Oktoberfest is a German tradition, which first took place in Munich in 1810 and is the world’s largest Volksfest (beer festival and travelling funfair). The tradition has been celebrated ever since, and this latest adaptation on the German classic promises to capture the carefree spirit of the original, whilst celebrating Germany’s favourite non-German. Hoff-toberfest will include a traditional OompahPah German band, flown in especially from Bavaria for the occasion, playing a selection of The Hoff’s classic hits such as the iconic Looking For Freedom, which he famously performed in Berlin on New Year’s Eve in 1989 after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Revellers can also look forward to an exclusive look at clips from his new film, comedy Killing Hasselhoff, which will play on the evening; whilst being treated to a Hoff-themed menu and, of course, steins of ice-cold German beer.
Jule Wilczoch, owner of Bavarian Beerhouse, says of the event: “We are thrilled to be the host venue for the first, ever Hoff-toberfest celebration. David Hasselhoff is a national treasure in Germany and we are excited to adapt our traditional yearly Oktoberfest celebrations to honour him and his new film. The evening will be one of a kind but maintaining an authentic feel – we are hoping Hoff fans far and wide will join us for our first year of stein-lifting and bench-dancing Hasselhoff-themed fun!”
