From 01.08.2018 until 04.08.2018 the Wacken Open Air was opening its doors for the 29th time. After the last years being often a mudslinging, this year offered pure sun and heat. Related to that was unfortunately also the dust (which you like to put up more then the mud), as well as dinking enough (and not only alcohol). There were many great bands so that the agony of choice was extreme.
For today there is still something from my archive. Beginning of Januar 2015 Sabaton was guest together with Battle Beast and Delain at the Turbinenhalle at Oberhausen. It was a really entertaining evening. Especially Sabaton showed, how to interact with an audience.
Only 63 days left, then it is once again the time: Wacken Open Air 2018! Other than the previous years there are still tickets available, but I think that also this year the promoters are able to announce: “Sold Out”. What is the reason for selling tickets more gently I cannot tell, the line-up seems not to be the reason. There are many well-known names joining but also many newcomers.
I have proceeded my meanwhile quite large pile of old not reworked concerts and here are now the first results.
Today is finally the day. After a lot of efforts the website is finally in a new version with new outfit and updated foundation online. There will for sure be some issues until everything is finally running as expected so there is my request to inform me via a short mail in case you find something (as the website has extremely grown since its start you can easily oversee something).
During the high days and holidays I found some time to rework and upload some pictures and these I do not want to hold back. Pictures of concerts are not yet included (but I am working to upload them as fast as possible) but at least the following landscape pictures are now available:
