W:O:A 2017 Highlights

Aug 082017

Faster, Harder, Louder!!! The names of the three main stages of this year's Wacken Open Air say it all! No rain, no mud could stop 75.000 metalheads from 80 countries to celebrate the legendary Wacken Open Air 2017.

For the last 28 years  the Rock-Festival in the north of Germany is the Mekka to all Headbanger and Metalheads, making sure that they do not miss any action from this insane festival. 3 days of the finest extreme music is being performed on eight stages from morning till late night.

Wacken is renowned for its epic line up, so much so, that it is sold out every year in just few hours without any band announcements. Two of our invited guests from Denmark experienced this insane festival for the first time Lindfjeld & Stinella. Both girls enjoyed particularly special atmosphere and the hectic weather conditions of Wacken.  Nevertheless this never stops thousands of fans from camping out for the entire weekend.

All bands gave their very best, from Amon Amarth, Avantasia, Alice Cooper (who kindly donated € 10.000 to the Wacken Foundation) to The Dillinger Escape Plan, Architects and Saltatio Mortis. We got to catch up with guitarist Nita Strauss from Alice Cooper: "I cannot believe that I am here at the Wacken Open Air 2017! It is truly a dream come trough! I cannot stop smiling, I just cannot believe that I am here! "

Faster - Harder - Louder >> See you in Wacken 2018 - rain or shine!!!
