SOLD OUT!!


20 years! 20 fucking years! That's how long the Wacken Open Air exists already. And it has come a long way from a garden party with 800 guests and 6 bands to the biggest metal festival in the world with more than 75,000 visitors and close to 70 bands performing on four stages. Said stages have seen performances by nearly every important band in the world of metal as well as numerous underground acts, so expectations are quite high for this year's lineup. Already confirmed are several fan favorites from the previous editions, such as Saxon, Motörhead, Machine Head, In Flames and Doro who has announced a special Warlock show. Further highlights are the two hour farewell show of metal veterans Running Wild, who will show the young lads how pirate metal is really done, and the performance of recently reunited viking metal legends Einherjer. And as always the lineup will please metalheads of every age: the older folks will be delighted by the confirmations of Heaven And Hell and UFO while Bullet For My Valentine, Walls Of Jericho and Bring Me The Horizon represent the newest generation of metal(-related) music.

The namesake and host of the festival is the small town of Wacken in Northern Germany. For just short of a week the town's population skyrockets from a mere 2,000 souls and turns the village into the world's metal mecca. The town is located 10 km north of Itzehoe and 50 km north/west of Hamburg. There will be shuttle buses from the festival site to the train station in Itzehoe as well as to the airports in both Hamburg and Lübeck. For more info on getting there and away check the festival page here.

The festival is sold out since December already. If you haven't got your ticket yet, but want to go there nonetheless, you can circumvent the black marketing going on eBay and reduce the risk of acquiring fake tickets by using the ticket exchange in the official forum. In this exchange the Wacken staff supervises the ticket prices and acts as trust which means that the seller sends the ticket(s) to the staff who verifies the authenticity of the ticket(s) and reports it to the buyer. After the buyer has transferred the money to the seller, the Wacken staff will pass on the ticket(s) to the buyer. More information on this model can be found here (in German).

To fill the slot of Thin Lizzy, today a secret show has been announced. They say it's going to be a long-time wacken companion.

i'm sure the information will leak soon enough, or at least before the show

It didn't when Stratovarious were the special act. Man, was I disappointed

why the hell does everyone spell Stratovarious? it's STRATOVARIUS, STRATOcaster + stradiVARIUS!

anyway i don't care for this since RUNNING WILD is gonna be one of my main interests in the whole festival and they're playing at the same time.

Ah, that's why it looked odd. I corrected my post. If you correct your quote now, we can tell everyone it never happened
I never cared much for running wild, but seens as it's supposed to be their last show I might check it out. At least I might tell my grandchildren about it one day.

man i'm listening right now to them(The Brotherhood), these guys can't NOT put on a great show, given how bombastic and hook-laden their music is, plus it's their last show before disbanding, at the world's biggest metal festival, and they are headlining the first day and have the most time to play out of all the bands along with Saxon. the world is watching and listening, it just can't not be a great show!

so angry

i mean, what's so "Various" about Stratovarius? do they use "Various" instruments? they're influenced by "Various" genres and artists? their discography comprises songs and albums with "Various" concepts and structures? does the bass player screw "Various" groupies every night??? do they even fucking show "Various" facial expressions while they play?????????????????????



that's what i thought, they play generic european power metal, all their groupies are either gothic sluts, indie wannabes or gay little boys pretending to be girls and don't even get me started on the facial expressions . how can they have "Various" in their name? not only would it be a disgrace because it fails to describe their music, sexual prowess and potency, but it would be a disgrace to an english dictionary which describes "Various" as this: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/various but you, generic brainwashed generic power metal fan , find it really difficult to use Wiktionary huh? well a lifetime of masturbating to Sonata Arctica does that to you i guess.

therefore, from now on, every time you, generic brainwashed generic power metal fan every time you misspell Stratovarius i am going to rip off your head and shit down your throat in "Various" ways.... BITCH

So are we all meeting up at some stage? Should we be exchanging mobile numbers or something? I'm arriving at the camp site hopefully around midday on 29 July.

you know where to find me

for everybody else:
i'll be, on the morning and afternoon of the 29th, either in the medieval market or the beer garden, and the W.E.T. tent(evening - if at the metal-karaoke there's a guy who presents himself in German something like "hello i'm Valentin from Romania and this is <Band - Song>" or something, it's me),

other than that i'll probably be in the medieval area or in the beer garden except during X-Plod(the WOA Romania Metal Battle winners), Anthrax, Running Wild, Heaven and Hell, UFO, Gamma Ray, Nevermore and the rest of the bands who play on the second day, Rage, Cathedral, Testament, In Extremo, Volbeat, Saxon, Korpiklaani and Subway to Sally play. if i'm not in any of those places i'm probably sleeping/fucking/eating in my tent.
Promonex - 08.07.2009 at 02:41  
If you see some dude with far too many wristbands on his left arm and an oldschool MS shirt (you know, like the one in Ivan's avatar), say hi and give him a beer. Or skip the hi part
Black Mass - 09.07.2009 at 18:07  
I hope to arrive around midday on the 29th. Will set up camp and head straight to the beer garden. NFI what I'm going to be wearing, will advise closer to the day so people can find me (oh yeah, tall girl with long dark hair wearing black...hahaha, should be heaps easy to find )

Does anyone know about the rumours that Edguy will be playing Wacken? Someone told me that Edguy will be there, although I'm not quite sure if this is true. Would be awesome though.
Promonex - 10.07.2009 at 11:16  
Adorned Brood between Borknagar and In Extremo sounds like a nice plan indeed. At least one interesting band on that medieval stage.

I hope to arrive around midday on the 29th. Will set up camp and head straight to the beer garden. NFI what I'm going to be wearing, will advise closer to the day so people can find me (oh yeah, tall girl with long dark hair wearing black...hahaha, should be heaps easy to find )

Yeah, anticipation is the best. I for once have to take two exams and attend one (two day) marriage until then. Not even much time to think about the festival. Boy am I glad, when we're finally there. Anyone else already planning on being there on wednesday 0:01 am?
Black Mass - 16.07.2009 at 13:19  
Our flight lands at about 8.30am on Wed, so hoping to be setting up campsite by midday.
corrupt - 16.07.2009 at 23:01  
I second the original suggestion by Black Mass. We should definitely meet somewhere. And not like "hey, I'll be at place X around Time Y" but at a time that we agree upon now and preferably having a guy or two with metalstorm T-Shirts there so that the others can will find us / I can find you.
I hereby suggest some time around wednesday night. Most of us should be there by then (and if not, we can still reschedule, although once the bands start playing, it could get difficult to agree on one time where we all can be there). Since many people seem to prefer the beer garden, let's meet there. Although, non-alcoholic that I am, I vaguely recall them not selling my cola last year
So how's about wednesday night at 9:00 pm local time (that is utc+1 btw) at the beer garden? Metalstorm shirt owners to the front please.
Promonex - 17.07.2009 at 11:39  
Wednesday 9 p.m.? It's gonna be fucking crowded, man! I'd rather suggest something like 7 p.m., about an hour before the Firefighters start their set.
Also the beer garden is quite big. How about agreeing about a specific point? Like the entrance of the beer garden opposing the entrance to the festival area?
kaoskrew - 17.07.2009 at 12:13  
I think the beer garden will be full to bursting on the Wednesday night with only 70000 people :-)

Yeah, good point. Didn't think about that. I came up with 9 pm in case some of us would arrive late. 7 pm works fine for me too, as would anything past noon
So next suggestion: Beer garden entrance on wednesday 7:00 pm. Indcluding a 15 minute arrival buffer
Black Mass - 17.07.2009 at 15:28  
Sweet! I'll be there! Don't have a MS shirt though (sorry). If anyone wants my mobile number PM me. I'm excited!!
Baz Anderson - 17.07.2009 at 19:57  
I'll wear my MS shirt if I remember. I've been very busy the past few weeks and will be until Wacken, so my mind is everywhere at the moment - don't hold me to anything.
Promonex - 19.07.2009 at 15:41  
As I said, I gonna wear my old school MS shirt. So unlike Baz you can also recognize me from behind
(I dunno, but somehow that sounds wrong...)
Promonex - 19.07.2009 at 15:46  
Whow, I've just seen Fejd have been announced for the medieval stage on the first night. Finally a band which is actually worth it to be there on Wednesday already

They cancelled cause they are without a vocalist currently.

well it's a bit late to get another good thrash metal band to fill in.. Turisas would be the perfect band to fill in for them, they play in the almighty WET tent on Saturday, which i find a disgrace to their epic sound and great music.


EDIT from the Wacken site:

Dear metalheads,

as already discussed at the bulletin board, ANTHRAX decided to break up with their singer Dan Nelson. As a consequence of this they had to cancel almost all upcoming dates.
However, it is not clear if the ANTHRAX show at W:O:A will be cancelled, too.
Currently we are negotiating and going after a cooperation between their former singer John Bush and the band. But at the moment we do not have any news.
We hope this negotiations are in your interest!


there's still hope

I see you also already found the news. I just wanted to post that here.

There is sill hope for you people that Anthrax will play.

Saw part of their set at Hellfest with Dan and they were really good, and Dan really surprised m in a postiive way.
Infurnace - 24.07.2009 at 14:29  
Hopefully they will still play, with John Bush on vocals. That's even better, IMO. John Bush is IMO the best vocalist Anthrax has had.
GT - 25.07.2009 at 19:12  
The meeting at the Beer Garden on Wednesday at 7 pm should work for me. I don't have a MS t-shirt, but I'll probably be wearing a Wuthering Heights t-shirt so I should be quite easy to recognise.

no way, you don't know the deal? they're gonna play just one song from each album, for Power and the Glory and Crusader i already know what that is(title tracks of course), i'm curious for Lionheart and their first 3 albums and ANGRY we had to choose between Princess of the Night and Denim and Leather for D&L... i just wanna know what not to expect

Why would you want to to know what they're gonna play beforehand? There's nothing better than a good surprise.

ahem, like i said previously, i'm pretty pissed off because they made us choose between 2-3 good songs like on Denim and Leather and i'd at least wanna know which....

ah fuck it, you win, i won't check out the setlist(if they do announce it today, after that i won't check out the internet), that way if they play Princess of the Night, Militia Guard, 747 Strangers in the Night, or Strong Arm of the Law i'm gonna be a much more happy man
Baz Anderson - 26.07.2009 at 13:14  
Ah cool, so Saxon are doing something a little different then. Playing something for each album should be interesting - especially if they do it in order.

Baz Anderson - 26.07.2009 at 14:17  
It'll be especially interesting seeing as it'll be my 6th time seeing Saxon live, and their setlists are never particularly shocking or adventurous. I'll be seeing them at Bloodstock too (my 7th time seeing them.. haha) so maybe they'll play something they might not have usually played there too.

Any sources for that claim?
