Looking for fun Oktoberfest songs to add to your playlist, or simply gearing up to know all the words for the big day?

Oh, you big nerd. We love it.

Besides the food, the drinks, and the rides, one our favorite parts of Oktoberfest is the absolute rocking soundtrack that comes with it.

While most tents will have a relatively demure brass band playing oompah instrumentals from the morning until afternoon, once 4pm hits – the tents become a wonderful party zone with a mix of party hits, singalong classics and German songs that you will no doubt pretend you know the words to.

Wondering which Oktoberfest songs you absolutely must familiarize yourself with? In this list, we’ll be recapping some of the most popular songs played at Oktoberfest, along with little YouTube embeds so you can enjoy them right now right now.


NOTE: Every year, there’s typically a new ‘Wiesn Hit’ or ‘Oktoberfest Hit’ that is a mainstay in each tent. This will usually be a song that was a big summer hit that year (think Despacito), so keep an eye out for that as well, in addition to these classics which you’ll no doubt hear several times.
