Wacken Open Air line-up seems breathtaking this year!

The whole list can be seen from the link below: https://www.wacken.com/de/programm/bands/#!/filter/name
The festival will take place in the small town of Wacken in northern Germany around Hamburg. In the year 1990, when the first Wacken Open Air Festival was over, no one would imagine that it was going to be the most prestigious metal festival of the world. As of the year 2019, thousands of metalheads are expected to visit the festival at the beginning of August and the tickets are already sold out!
Furthermore, a great number of warm up parties for Wacken from all over the world are also announced, definitely worth seeing starting from the May; one of them may be around your area. For detailed info: https://www.wacken.com/de/community/warm-up-parties/
See you in August, rain or shine!
