“We are very pleased about the positive response that Bullhead City has received with its announcement, for which we can now start the presale. And we are just as happy that we can welcome many old companions and exciting newcomers to Bullhead City, our metal family reunion - more will follow!” explains Holger Hübner, Managing Director of WOA Festival GmbH. His partner Thomas Jensen adds: “With our new format we want to try new things. For example we want to use the forest we have acquired on the festival site for the first time - and if everything goes accordingly to our plan, we will offer the largest beer garden in 2021 with many culinary highlights!"
More information about the event:
The initial capacity for Bullhead City is currently set to 20,000 people per day, although this number can be increased if the pandemic develops positively. There are no restrictions for people from abroad at the moment, except for the entry rules for Germany that will apply in September.
It is expected that all participants must either be tested, vaccinated or recovered upon arrival. In this case, a confirmed status with a ticket personalization will be necessary. The mask requirement could be omitted for most areas. The consumption of alcohol will of course be allowed - according to the current status - without restrictions on the event site as well as campsite. Due to the dynamics of the pandemic situation, the exact measures for September cannot be finally confirmed at this point.
