Wacken Open Air festival

4.0 stars


Camping at Wacken

A bus from Remedy Records (in Hamburg) took me to Wacken (this was included in the pre-booked festival ticket). I wasn’t carrying a tent, but fortunately, I could buy a WOA tent (for about 40 Euros). The camping grounds were expansive – spread over acres of meadow land. A lot of people had come in their cars and caravans as well.
Since I was on a tight budget, I had carried food supplies, which I didn’t finally need because there were a lot of food and beer stalls and a pub by the Karaoke Stage. Anyway I tried to keep my ingestion to a minimum because the toilet facilities were best avoided. [more ]

A cold summer at Wacken Open Air festival

One of the world’s biggest heavy metal festivals is held 20 km outside of Hamburg near a pretty town called Itzehoe. The 3-day long festival is organized in the German meadows, has about 5 different stages for bands to play on, and acres of camping ground where metal-heads from all over the world pitch their tents and park their caravans.
We went into the German summer duly dressed in shorts and T-shirts and ironically, it rained all through Wacken 2005. Being ardent fans (and also much shorter than the average German), we stood right up front all day long and froze our toes off. But it was an awful lot of fun and to cover up the slush and wasted beer cocktail on the ground, bales of hay were piled strewn about. The Wacken festival is three days of mayhem and just letting go.
