This year’s WACKEN OPEN AIR is gonna rock the Metal world from August, 4th until August 6th in that small German town called Wacken (where else?), north of Hamburg. Shall we even bother to tell you about it? Voices readers probably at least heard about it and those who have the chance will probably be there anyway. Just in case you haven’t heard about it – check our reports of previous festivals at the specials section. Some of this year’s highlights will be a possibly ever exclusive performance of SweDeath allstars BLOODBATH, one of the few ACCEPT reunion gigs (it really doesn’t look as if those guys like each other anymore – so if they’re not going bankrupt, there won’t be another chance to see that legend and at least at the Rock Hard Festival they fuckin’ rocked!) and Ramon is gonna crawl on his knees all the way to Wacken for CANDLEMASS anyway. For the whole W:O:A line up check out our tourdates section or take a look at the festival’s official website you find below. The special surprise act will be MACHINE HEAD who won’t play another German festival this year! Or maybe you’d rather support the underground and check out the "Metal Battle" at the tent stage? Finally, there’s an official book available now called "Wacken History". In this book you find statements from bands who played at the W:O:A the last 15 years, backstage reports, storys about the W:O:A and many previously unreleased pictures. See you in Wacken – rain or shine!
