Germany's legendary Wacken Open Air festival took place last weekend. Organizers have released the following video which focuses on the fans, their experiences and the atmosphere at the camping sites and all the attractions and stands you were able to visit during the 24th edition of the festival.
Next year's edition of Wacken Open Air is officially SOLD OUT for the ninth time in a row. According to organizers: "We never had expected to reach the total sold out in less than 48 hours. All 75,000 tickets are sold. A dozen bands for the billing have been already announced including several special and exclusive shows as well as high-class acts. As every year we have made every effort to provide a terrific billing! And the announcements won´t stop. During the Hamburg Metal Dayz (September 27th to 29th) and our online Advent Calendar in December we will at least confirm one band per day. Together we will turn the 25th Anniversay of Wacken Open Air into a mega party!"
AMON AMARTH, APOCALYPTICA, ARCH ENEMY, AVANTASIA, BEHEMOTH, CHILDREN OF BODOM, EMPEROR, ICED EARTH, KING DIAMOND, KREATOR, PRONG, and SCHANDMAUL are the first batch of acts confirmed for Wacken Open Air 2014.
