WACKEN OPEN AIR 2011 - pre-report



When: 04.-06.08.2011
Where: Wacken, Germany




wacken open air 2011 pre-report WACKEN is turning 22 and is stronger than ever! We all know the story of the little village in the middle of nowhere in the North of Germany, that faces an abrupt rise of residents basically over night and always during the first weekend in August. Tons of bands and fans invade Wacken and build a village in the village if you want to say so and it has almost become a tradition, that the festival can proudly announce the „Sold out“ way before August. As every year a varied mix of all Metal styles is being offered, with big names such as the prince of darkness OZZY OSBOURNE, BLIND GUARDIN or JUDAS PRIEST, as well as APOCALYPTICA, AVANTASIA or SODOM. Death Metal with MORBID ANGEL or maybe rather some Medieval tunes with SALTATIO MORTIS? It´s all there! Maybe some comedy inbetween? JIM BREUER and BÜLENT CEYLAN will take good care of that department! Apart from that newcomers will also fight for the title of the Wacken Metal Battle winner again.
