Headbangers Open Air 2008
The self proclaimed biggest garden party in the world was once again the gathering place for classic heavy metal fans, hellrats and rivetheads of the world. The first night (thursday 24th of July) was a warm up night with only a few bands performing.

And here’s what happened during our three day stay at the grassy fields of Brande-Hörnenkirchen.

It was the first time when I arrived by car to Germany in to see festivals and there certainly were problems but we made it with my loyal driver, my little brother with icy nerves.

Sadly we missed Messenger and Roxxcalibur and arrived somewhere after and just heard Deadly Blessing and Benedictum who were a great soundtrack while putting together our old oversized tent. Luckily our german neighbors finally helped us so thanks to them who ever they were. So my festival starts from…
