Wacken Open Air 2009 was a huge disappointment for many metal fans. In 2008 the world's biggest heavy metal festival has booked Iron Maiden as headliners and has raised the bar a bit too high for its own good. In 2009, the 20th anniversary of this legendary festival, a lot of bands appeared which have played in the years before already, but no uber headliner a la Iron Maiden to justify the high ticket price. Many people blamed the W:O:A to rely on its name only as the 20th edition was sold out eight months prior to the festival. In 2010 however the Wacken Open Air proves all these critics wrong...

Iron Maiden are back again! And this time they aren't the uber headliners of 2008, but only primus inter pares ("first among equals"): thrash titans Slayer, glam metal monsters Mötley Crüe and the father of shock rock Alice Cooper are also confirmed as headliners for the 21st edition. And as always there are a few special performances: Grave Digger celebrate their 30th anniversary by performing the entire "Tunes of War" album, a show which will also feature some special guests, while Swedish gothic metal pioneers Tiamat will be performing their legendary "Wildhoney" album, 20 years after the band Treblinka mutated into the Tiamat we know today. But even if you don't care for either of these bands, Wacken once again offers a wide array of metal styles for almost everyone: black metal with Immortal and 1349, death metal with Cannibal Corpse and grindcore supergroup Lock Up, power metal with Kamelot and Stratovarius, heavy metal with U.D.O. and W.A.S.P., modern metal with Fear Factory and Soulfly, etc. etc. etc.. All in all a whopping 122 acts will perform on five stages over a period of four days.

Wacken Open Air takes plays in - surprise! - Wacken in Northern Germany, a small village with merely 2,000 inhabitants on 361 days of the year. The town is located 10 km north of Itzehoe and 50 km northwest of Hamburg. There will be shuttle buses from the festival site to the train station in Itzehoe as well as to the airports in Berlin, Hamburg, Bremen and Lübeck. For more info on getting there and away check the festival page here.

Certainly not the cheapest, but probably the most fun way to get to and from Wacken has to be the Metal Train. The "railway to hell" equals one huge party of 850 metalheads in one train with 16 wagons, which includes two dedicated disco wagons. Check the website for the schedule and prices.

The festival is officially sold out since April. Most tour operators (e.g. Metal Train for Germany, Bock Tours for the Netherlands, Germany, Austria or Switzerland, Argon Events for the UK) still have tickets in stock though.

Another way to acquire your ticket would be the ticket exchange in the official forum which aims for eliminating the black marketing going on eBay and reducing the risk of acquiring fake tickets. In this exchange the Wacken staff supervises the ticket prices and acts as trust which means that the seller sends the ticket(s) to the staff who verifies the authenticity of the ticket(s) and reports it to the buyer. After the buyer has transferred the money to the seller, the Wacken staff will pass on the ticket(s) to the buyer. More information on this model can be found here (in German).

So, what? Instead of one big band on the 24th they gave us seven smaller bands?

if that is the case i'm slightly disappointed even though some of those bands do tickle me like Evile and Tyr

EDIT been listening to Kataklysm and i actually dig this shit.

The latest confirmations are in:

Secrets Of The Moon, Sólstafir and Suicidal Angels.

While I don't (yet) care for the other two, I always wante to look at Sólstafir. This is getting better and better.

The only problem I have with Wacken is the W.E.T. stage. Or not the stage itself, but the entrance to the tent.
It has never been big enough and they've not seemed to do anything about it in the three years I have been going.

i've been in the tent for Mambo Kurt and i easily made my way in even though there were people around.. guess that wasn't the case during turisas or alestorm lol

Well I didn't watch either of them. I seriously doubt there would be anywhere near as much of an audience for Mambo Kurt than proper bands.
In 2007 I couldn't even get in the tent for 1349, I had to watch most of the set from outside. In 2008 it was literally impossible to get in for Van Canto, so unfortunately I had to miss them. In 2009 I was sick of the whole stage, so the only band I watched there was Whiplash.

whatever.. i still wonder which are the last 3-4 big bands that are to be announced, i know i'm beginning to sound boring but i really hope for Iced Earth and Blind Guardian, i'd have loved to be there in 2007 with those 2, Immortal, Saxon, In Flames, Subway to Sally, Therion etc. very good year

also 2005 was a very interesting year, with a ton of bands that disbanded or changed their vocalist in the following months/years, Sentenced, Accept, Nightwish, Dissection, Candlemass, Tristania, weird...

I vote you're doing something wrong. There's not one time in the last five editions of Wacken where we didn't make it into the tent when we wanted to. And among the shows we've seen there are some of those you mentioned. It is crowded alright, but not impossible to fight your way through. And Once you're inside, the situation will relax as most of the time it's not half as crowded inside as it is outside. And I would bet you 100 that 2008's Mambo Kurt attracted about twice as many people as Van Canto on the WET stage.

Coffee!!
I got inside the tent for Van Canto without that much trouble.

Haven't paid much attention to this event page for a while and I must say the lineup seems to be improving a lot I'm pretty sure I'll be there again.

They confirmed a local Oi-Punk band called the Broilers. It's getting a little punky this time it seems. I can't say I prefer punk over metalcore so let's see wich genre attracts less idiots and I'll vote for that from now on.

hehe, i don't mind the punk.
i think the billing's variety is welcomed, there's something for all. extreme metal? immortal, kataklysm, hackneyed, cannibal, endstille, secrets, 1349 etc.(already many more extreme metal bands than the ones booked for 2009, when precisely four bands played on the main stages) power metal? edguy, strato, orden ogan, grave digger.. melodeath/gothenburg/metalcore/deathcore?(yeah i lump them in the same category, sue me) arch enemy, atrocity, despised icon, caliban.. thrash? slayer, evile, ektomorf.. drunken fun metal bands? reiter, torfrock, crucified barbara, fiddler's green.. etc. etc.
the only genre i can see is lacking so far would be doom metal, with only Candlemass and Tiamat so far (yes Marcel i do consider Tiamat's Wildhoney to be doom metal ). but then again Wacken was never known to be a doom metal haven(this year was pretty good with 4-5 reasonably well-known doom metal bands or bands playing doom influenced metal like Heaven and Hell)

after all, everyone was complaining this year about there being not enough extreme metal, i even bumped into this girl from Philadelphia and she said she was into "really brutal stuff", i almost asked her "what the hell are you doing here then?" but she took off before i could ask her. really, now that there is enough extreme metal, where do we go from here?

Letzte Instanz confirmed! I guess they'll be playing the Medieval Stage, but I really hope they'll play on the W.E.T. Stage, just for nostalgia's sake. That's where I got to know them resulting in them becoming one of my alltime favorite bands

Just grab their newest album, it's even better if you don't understand the lyrics

Letzte Instanz confirmed! I guess they'll be playing the Medieval Stage, but I really hope they'll play on the W.E.T. Stage, just for nostalgia's sake. That's where I got to know them resulting in them becoming one of my alltime favorite bands

checked out some of their stuff on youtube(wir sind allein, ohne dich, mein todestag) and they sound really great, gonna listen to them more extensively these days.

Just grab their newest album, it's even better if you don't understand the lyrics

why? they're too cheesy?

Let's say a bit more generic than on their previous albums. It was the meaning of the lyrics of the two preceding albums "Ins Licht" and "Wir sind Gold" which had made them such an important band for me. The lyrics are subpar on the new album, but the songs are a lot better for a live environment.

Why the hell would anyone order the bands by alphabet when it clearly says they are to be sorted by relevance? I spent quite some time hand-sorting the bands by their popularity index on MS. So whoever fucked that up is hereby asked to reverse it.

I did the alphabetical sorting, since I found it way easier to check if a band was already listed that way

Maybe Metalstorm should agree on one sorting algorithm for all the events and enforce that one in presentation regardless of user input. I will suggest that in the page forum.

Pretty sure Slayer won't be playing. They have cancelled all their immediate shows, Tom is having back surgery

yeah, the things Araya went through these last months have been pretty fucked up.. i hope he'll get better soon though. and if (satan forbid) he decides to take a long break, i hope they manage to get a replacement bass player and vocalist..
it's such a shame that a great live band such as Slayer has to cancel so many shows.

Aha! So now they have the unique chance to get a really cool replacement band for Slayer. Like say ... uh ... from off the top of my head ... maybe a secret special second Germany show of Bloodbath?


Oooor, what would really rock my boat: Arcturus. Vortex is back on the market guys, don't miss this chance. If they reunite, they have to play Wacken. Do not mess this up!
