Wacken 2017 News

Monday, May 22nd, 2017

News from Wacken:
MORE SOUND AND NEW NAMES – FOR OUR STAGES IN THE INFIELD!
We are preparing some small and some big changes for the upcoming Wacken Open Air! The construction work from last autumn were only the first step of our investments and improvements. Today’s news is about the big stages and the sound in our infield. More news will follow soon!
The stage names:
Last year we asked you to submit suggestions to rename the Party Stage. More than 1000 suggestions reached us and they covered a huge range of ideas. Thank you for your ideas and your support! Some of the ideas were amazing! But still, none of them felt right for us. After many, many discussions, we came to the, at least for us, right idea: We need to understand our three big open air stages as one unit.

LOCKERS AT W:O:A 2017 – NOW AVAILABLE FOR HIRE!
You can now rent your locker for the upcoming Wacken Open Air! The company BigBoxBerlin will again install some of their comfortable SafeBOX containers at Wacken. The SafeBOXes are both lockers and charging stations! The renewed containers are offering lockers in two sizes. You can find them at the Entrance Wacken Center / Party Stage and the entrance Plaza / Bullhead City.
Find out how it works and where to book these safe boxes here!

MASH-UP SPECIAL – 20 MILLION VIEWS AT WACKENTV
You made WackenTV go beyond the 20-million-views-mark – thank you very much! By now there are almost 800 clips on our YouTube channel, which can be a bit confusing. This is why we recommend to you the most historic, most beautiful and funniest clips in our mash up specials. On the occasion of the 20 million views it is today that we release the third of these specials on WackenTV.
You can find the third mashup here – Enjoy!
