US thrash titans MEGADETH are confirmed for Wacken Open Air 2014, taking place in Wacken, Germany from July 31st - August 2nd.
Organizers state: "Another huge Wacken premiere for the Anniversary! Thrash legend and Big Four member Megadeth will come to the holy land for the very first time. A real metalhead surely doesn’t need instructions on what Dave Mustaine’s band is about. After he left METALLICA he released Killing Is My Business… And Business Is Good! in 1985 - and the rest is history."
