Actually I did not plan to watch the Flensburg shanty choir but as nearly all of my group did want to go there I also stayed there on my way from Bullhead tent back to the camping ground. First it did not seem like the band being able to play as in the beginning the technics crapped out. With a delay of 15 minutes Santiano finally began and quickly really gathered pace.
On Wednesday evening to a late hour (at least it was already 21:30) I opened for me the Wacken Open Air 2012. Traditionally on the first inofficial day only the Metal Battle bands as well as some medieval bands on Wackinger Stage are playing but this year due to the huge number of newcomer contest competitors they already started around noon.
