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!

26 NEW BANDS FOR WACKEN OPEN AIR 2019!

Thursday, March 7th, 2019



26 NEW BANDS FOR WACKEN OPEN AIR 2019!
Today we can announce another wave of bands for upcoming Wacken Open Air 2019! A total of 26 bands join the lineup today. At this point we want to pay special attention to three acts that have never been seen in Wacken before:

Uriah Heep
Since 1969 Uriah Heep have been on the road without any notable break and the Hard Rock band has sold more than 40 million records during this time. And yet they have never made it to Wacken. Now this will finally change! Look forward to hits like Easy Livin’, Lady in Black or July Morning.

Hellhammer performed by Tom Warrior’s Triumph of Death
Tom Warrior dedicates his project Triump of Death to the songs of his legendary band Hellhammer. Hellhammer only existed between 1982 and 1984, but the great influence Black and Death Metal can not to be argued away.

Monster Magnet
In 2018, Monster Magnet released their 10th studio album, called Mindfucker. Obviously, the name would have been a perfect match for all of the band’s previous albums too. Since 1989 the US-Americans have been delivering on a high level – and we can’t wait for their Wacken debut!

All 26 acts at a glance:
Aborym, Angelus Apatrida, Asrock, Baby Face Nelson, Crazy Lixx, Crobot, Deathstars, Dirty Shirt, Eclipse, Hellhammer performed by Tom Warrior’s Triumph of Death, Lucifer Star Machine, Monster Magnet, Nachtblut, Nordjevel, Prong, Savage Messiah, Skew Siskin, The Damned, The Lazys, The New Roses, The Quireboys, The Wild! Uriah Heep, Warkings, Wiegedood, Zuriaake
