Wacken Open Air Festival

Wacken Open Air (WOA) is back with a vengeance at the beginning of August. WOA is not only the world's biggest heavy metal event but also the largest three-day open-air festival in Germany. The festival now attracts more than 75,000 people a year and is taking place from 1 to 3 August in 2013. Metalheads of every age will be flocking from all four corners of the globe to the little village of Wacken in Schleswig-Holstein for the 24th edition of this unforgettable spectacle.

The 2013 line-up features 88 big-name bands including Motörhead and Subway to Sally. And with Deep Purple and Alice Cooper on the bill, the upcoming festival will be playing host to two genuine legends of the rock/metal genre. Another coup for the festival: Rammstein have confirmed that they will be making their Wacken debut!
