Wacken2019 – Running Order now online!

Sunday, June 2nd, 2019



RUNNING ORDER ONLINE!
Dear metalheads, here we go with the first edition of our W:O:A 2019 running order.
But first we’d like to point out two things. We’re moving the Metal Battle finals to the new History Stage. Yes, you’ve read that right – we’re expanding with a „new“ stage for wich we used actual „old“ parts from our early days main stage, which had been graced by Doro, Saxon or Böhse Onkelz.
Even W:O:A Founder Thomas Jensen dropped a few basslines here with his band Skyline. But compared to those days we built the whole thing inside a huge tent to create another weather proof area on the festival site. This is a piece of metal history coming back to life and an appropriate setting for the best metal acts of the future. This also means that the finalists of the Metal Battle will be able to play longer sets with 30 minutes slots.
And yes, Sabaton will be performing on both stages at the same time, delivering a massive and unique show. Not to bad for a 20th band anniversary, eh?
This first version of our running order only contains the musical part. Spoken word performances and other items will be added later of course. In other news: Desktop users can now choose an additional view. A customizable version of the running order will be available before the festival.
As usual feel free to hit us up with your feedbacks!

DONG: Running order and small changes…

Friday, May 31st, 2019



Our friends of the DONG Open Air have news:

Thar she blows! The running order for the Dong Open Air 2019! As usually, we tried our best to put together three diverse days for you. Take a look and do a double take on our band profiles, because a band unknown to you may just turn into your favorite artist soon!

Unfortunately Silver Talon cancelled their appearance.
Fortunately we found a great new act to jump in: Elvellon with their symphonic tunes!

On Sunday, the 2nd of June, we will expand our offer in the shop to provide some day passes. Don’t wait too long – the sale is still going strong. Tickets available in our webshop, metaltix.com, eventim.de, and most German ticket shops.

Be quick or be dead

DONG: THREE QUARTERS OF ALL TICKETS SOLD!

Friday, May 24th, 2019



Our friends of the DONG Open Air have news:

Dear listeners,

Please note that three quarters for the tickets for the 2019 Dong Open Air have been sold. We double checked and recalculated and have come to the conclusion that this is a full 75%! If you do not yet own a ticket, we only have one quarter of all tickets left to change this.

Our mathematicians have also come to the conclusion:

The likeliness of the sold out status in 2019 before the festival takes place: “Highly likely. Even more likely than last year.”
Proposed purchase date for the last tickets: “Now, man!”

Get your tickets in our online shop, on metaltix.com, eventim.de and at many German ticket shops. Be there, because it’ll be even better with you!

Your Dong Team

DONG 2019 News… ;-)

Monday, April 1st, 2019



Our friends of the DONG Open Air have news:

We have applied to the ‘Ministry for Family, Children, Youth, Culture and Sport’ for an attractive cultural sponsorship for the anniversary Dong Open Air 2020.
The officials do not distribute money indiscriminately, of course, but make their decision only after an examination. While we don’t want to offend anyone, but if you look at the past funding, you might think that a metal festival might seem a bit ‘out there’. So it would be advantageous for us if we could present ourselves as a bit more sophisticated.
For this reason, the festival will be accompanied by several photographers and a small film team, who will hopefully capture many beautiful moments, which we would like to add to our application. But we don’t want to rely on that alone.
That’s why we asked all bands to wear casual evening attire and would like to ask you ourselves.
Cut-offs with patches are of course completely OK for a festival. But for our ‘advertising photos’ it’s not necessarily the image we would like to convey. Of course the area in front of the stage is especially interesting for this kind of photos and will therefore be closed off to an ‘Inner Circle’. The principle is probably known, with a short evaluation of your appearance, our crowd managers regulate the access to the front rows.
To make the festival go a bit smoother, you can book the Inner Circle Tickets for 15€ from Wed. 12 o’clock at noon on. In this case the evaluation will be cancelled.
We hope, of course, that you will not only show a little understanding for this unique measure, but that you will also adjust your clothing a little. Of course nobody expects a suit and a tie, but probably everyone will have something nice in their wardrobe.

Thank you very much,
your Dong Team
