Described as “the biggest heavy metal festival in the world,” this year’s Wacken Open Air featured performances by over 100 acts, including ALICE COOPER, DEEP PURPLE and MOTÖRHEAD.

All 75,000 tickets to this year’s Wacken Open Air were sold as of last September — a little more than a month after being made available. This marked the eighth time in a row that Wacken Open Air was sold out and it was the event’s fastest sellout ever.

Around 30 percent travel from other countries to the festival, which over recent years has been growing in popularity.
