Over 5,000 neo-Nazis have descended on a small town in Thuringia for an annual far-right concert there.

A neo-Nazi rock concert in Thuringia, east-central Germany, was allowed to go ahead on Saturday despite the protests of local people.

The annual concert is held in the small town of Themar, which has just 2913 inhabitants. By early evening on Saturday, more than 5,500 neo-Nazis had arrived for the concert, the German broadcaster WDR reported.

Around 5,000 people were expected to attend the event, the biggest-ever audience for the concert. It is called “Rock gegen Ueberfremdung” (Rock against too many foreigners).

Amid security fears, about 1,000 extra police officers had traveled to Themar and were searching revelers before they entered the field. The far-right revelers wore T-shirts emblazoned with slogans such as “Sturm auf Themar” (Storm of Themar) and “Frei wie ein Vogel,” (Free as a Bird) the title of a famous song by the right-wing extremist group Kategorie C.
