Metal-Rules.com will be attending and covering the festival…
Watch for it!
The words Wacken and Sold Out always seem to go together a little too easily, so it will come as no surprise that once again the top of the heavy-metal-festival-pyramid has long been oversubscribed. In fact it would appear to have broken all previous sales records, having sold out of all tickets a good eight months before its August opening.
At 23 years old, Wacken has well-earned its status as the biggest heavy metal open air festival in the world, and in many cases is considered to be the forefront event in metal’s bulging calendar. Considering the line-up on offer this year, which includes Ministry, Machine Head, Paradise Lost, Napalm Death, Cradle of Filth, Amon Amarth, The Scorpions, Opeth, In Flames, Sacred Reich, and numerous other bands – big and small, it certainly looks as though the team are taking their commitment to provide a class billing every year seriously.
Besides the music though, Wacken’s lingering memory also lies in the multitude of additional treats on offer from role-playing Vikings, to experiencing the end of time at the Thrash Of The Titans Field, wandering around numerous shops and stalls, and if desired even having the privilege of your own Metal Mobil WC!
