The Basics

Wacken Open Air is the mecca of heavy metal and hard rock festivals, taking place in Wacken, Germany. Not succumbing to trends, the festival is one of the last true rock festivals around. 

With tens of thousands of loyal fans who love it for the experience as much as the lineup, W:O:A continues to stay true to its roots and has been rocking since it began in 1990.

8 stages, more than 150 artists, 280 hectares, 75,000 metal heads, it doesn't get any better than this. Rock on.
