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 and jazz bands have performed on Rockpalast. Some acts were recorded for broadcast throughout Europe and for retail sale. All-night marathon shows called "rocknights" were produced once or twice a year from 1977 through 2009. Rockpalast is involved in several German rock and underground music festivals, once sponsoring the Bizarre Festival.

The founder and long-time producer of Rockpalast is Peter Rüchel.
