Wild kits and huge crowds
Well-known for attracting some of the most expressive music fans in the world, Wacken Open Air has grown synonymous with the wild dress styles of many of its punters. Expect to see a wide range of apocalyptic and medieval fashion experiments, with piercings and crazy hairstyles common throughout. Despite the aggressive visual presence of head banging mosh pits and leather clad metal heads, the gathering is an overwhelmingly safe and peaceful environment that is appropriate for any fan of heavy metal music or festivals in general. Do, however, make sure that you are well prepared for a multi-day stay in rural Germany, the location is a long way from any other major town. First held in 1990, the festival has seen millions of dedicated fans attend over the years. Originally starting with only several hundred loyal enthusiasts, it has grown to host more than tens of thousands of fans and become one of the largest metal and rock events in the world. In 2015, the allocated 75,000 tickets sold out in only 12 hours!

Best bands in the business
A healthy relationship exists between the festival and the small town of Wacken, and you are likely to interact with a number of friendly locals offering support with services such as accommodation and transport. Highlighting the popularity of the heavy metal event, fans are drawn from all parts of the world and approximately 30% of attendees are estimated to be foreigners. There is good reason why Wacken Open Air has been referred to as the mecca of heavy metal and a once in a lifetime experience. The list of performers in previous years is truly absurd, in 2018 alone, the event was graced by industry heavyweights Judas Priest and In Flames, along with a further 195 bands! The line-up the year before saw British shock rock icon Alice Cooper and American thrash legends Megadeth take the stage.
