Wacken : Open : Air 2014

The Silver Annniversary of the largest metal festival in the world W:O:A will be held from July 30 to August 2014 in the North-western German village of Wacken.
Five stages of the best metal bands, a giant fair, metal market and several intersting acts such as wrestling and viking battles will keep even the most demanding visitors amused.
No wonder that the tickets have been sold out for months already.
