The 25th-anniversary edition of Wacken Open Air literally ended 36 hours ago — and already, the promoters have confirmed that next year’s installment of the annual metal festival has sold out.
Yes, the 2015 Wacken Open Air festival is already fucking sold out.
You Germans love your metal.
This is the tenth year in a row that all tickets to Wacken have been snatched up within 12 hours.
This marks the fastest sellout in Wacken’s history and it beats the previous record, which was set last year: “We are absolutely overwhelmed,” said Thomas Jensen, one of the Wacken promoters.
“Last year we were sold out in 48 hours. Now it only took 12 hours. We would like to thank all our fans for their amazing support and loyalty.”
Next year’s Wacken will boast a Savatage reunion, and additionally feature sets by In Flames, Running Wild, In Extremo, U.D.O., Sabaton, Amorphis, Death Angel, Powerwolf, Ensiferum, Kataklysm, Cannibal Corpse, Sepultura, and Thyrfing.
