Wacken Open Air

Wacken kicks-off

On Wednesday afternoon, the Wacken Firefighters kicked-off the world's biggest Heavy Metal festival in Wacken with kettle drums, trumpets and the best beer garden golden oldies and accompanied by enthusiastic raucous bawling and headbanging of the fans.  . This traditional 'opening ceremony' of Wacken's brass band on the Beergarden Stage kicked off the 21st edition of the W:O:A, which has been sold out for months. After this warm-up, the festival officially starts today. Today's headliners are already mega blasts: Iron Maiden, Mötley Crüe and Alice Cooper will be celebrating the first official W:O:A day 2010.
