The Wacken Open Air festival is held nearby Hamburg in a village simply called Wacken every year in the end of July and beginning of August. Every year about 100,000 metal maniacs gather to witness great performances by several metal bands in the festival. Booked bands on the bill present a wide range of metal, from extreme metal to symphonic power metal.
Wacken Open Air Festival has been arranged with great success since 1990. The festival has increased its capacity in the sophisticated way, not having expanded the area tremendously to have hundreds of thousands to conquer the fest. Instead, Wacken Open Air has invested in the general comfort as the audience would enjoy their time and are able to see bands in action.
Wacken Open Air 2015 once again offers a great deal of bands from one side to another. It is truly fantastic that the legendary Savatage, will be headlining the festival. It will be a real mind-blowing show for sure.
It is obvious there will be several circle pits and thousands of crowd-surfers going over the wall. A lot of beer and good food and above all good metal. The line-up is incredible as usual. What a bill to be honest. Amorphis, Annihilator, At The Gates Armoured Saint, Biohazard, Cradle Of Filth, Death Angel, Epica, Europe, In Flames, Judas Priest, Obituary, Nuclear Assault, Queensryche, Rob Zombie, Transsiberia Orchestra, Plus there are a lot of bands which we have to check out.
Getting to Wacken Open Air is pretty easy. Take a plane and fly to Hamburg and get a rent-car to along the road A23 to reach the festival area.
See ya there !
