We’ve been sharing the intelligence secured from the folks behind the scenes at the much vaunted Wacken Open Air Festival (as seen HERE) and while it’s a new month for their side of the fence, its still Halloween over here in the states and what better a day to share news involving their event and the insanity that is Slipknot. Read on.
The Press Release:
Midnight, the witching hour – even more so in the final night of October to the 1st of November, when according to the popular American Halloween tradition all sorts of ghosts, vampires, and other nocturnal creatures are roaming around in seach of sweets and other treats.
Do you readers remember just the other day when I shared the First Bands that were announced for the Wacken Open Air Festival of 2020? If you said “NO” just click HERE to read that press release. Then continue on down below because the festival for next year is already SOLD OUT!!! I know, that’s insanity right? Read on.
The Press Release:
The 31st edition of the Wacken Open Air, which will take place from the 30th of July until the 1st of August 2020, is sold out after less than a day. The advance sale of the 75,000 tickets had traditionally started after the festival at midnight on Monday, August 5th. Fans from 83 countries have purchased tickets.
“We are stoked that tickets for the Wacken Open Air 2020 have again sold out in a sensationally short period of time”, comments festival founder Thomas Jensen. “The great success of this year’s anniversary edition and our announcement of the first bands for next year have obviously convinced our fans that they can rely on us for which we are extremely thankful. Well, it also might be that the reason for this humbling vote of confidence is that metal god Rob Halford will celebrate 50 years of JUDAS PRIEST in Wacken.” Continue reading Wacken Open Air Festival 2020 Is Sold Out→

Ready for another round of Wacken madness? Still grinning wildly thinking about our 30th anniversary edition? Well, we are looking forward to next year’s festival as much as all of you metalheads out there. Wacken Open Air 2020 is already shaping up nicely with the first batch of amazing bands confirmed – and a cool brand new look on top. Get ready to dive into Maya and Aztec culture in Wacken next year! First things first – and music always comes first in Wacken. We are proud to announce the following bands for 2020:
One of the highlights of next year’s Wacken Open Air will definitely be… the mighty JUDAS PRIEST! True legends celebrating “50 Heavy Metal Years” at the Holy Ground – a match made in headbanging heaven! JUDAS PRIEST have shaped heavy metal as we know it and we are incredibly honoured to welcome them to the festival for the fourth time.
Vikings and Metal go well together as we all know. There is no band out there that brings the fire, the screaming, and the general kickass awesomeness of both worlds better together than AMON AMARTH. These Swedes keep getting stronger and have been part of the Wacken journey since 1999! Next year, they will bring out the „Beserker“ in all of us for an impressive ninth time at the Wacken Open Air.

Artist: Fear Factory Venue: B.B. King Blues Club (New York, NY) Opener: Suffocation, Hypocrisy, Decapitated Date: 11/8/2006 Label: Calvin Records
“The Machines At War” Tour was the listing for this particular event and to be honest it seemed like an appropriate name for a show that would combine the force of Industrial Metal masters Fear Factory along with supreme Death Metal’s Suffocation, Prog-Death’s Hypocrisy and Technical Extremists Decapitated. If you were looking for a show that would stop your heart from beating – only to kick it back into operation then this was the show to attend. The venue would be B.B. King Blues Club once again which is par for the course as far as the bigger Metal shows have been going this year however this time around something was drastically different. On almost every wall were signs that warned against moshing and believe me folks they were serious about enforcing it this evening. Here are some comments on all the bands that performed this evening. Continue reading Fear Factory @ B.B. King Blues Club (11/8/2006)→
