wacken2020_soldoutDear Metalheads, yesterday, the German government decided that due to the Corona virus pandemic, no mass gatherings will be allowed until August, 31st 2020. Wacken is facing an unpresented situation in our 30 years: It is with heavy hearts that promoters have to announce that there will be no Wacken Open Air this year.

The whole team has been working intensively on the festival these last months and the more all of them are bitterly disappointed that they are not allowed to celebrate a Wacken Open Air with you. This administrative order affects them heavily and they will need some time to process the bad news.

Nevertheless, Wacken promoters support the decision of the German government in this difficult situation for the whole world. Your health and safety have always been and always will be the top priority. Promoters are therefore bound to take an even greater responsibility and have to follow the instructions of the experts.

Concerning Wacken Open Air 2021 and options for your already bought tickets they will reach out to you asap but ask for a little bit of patience whilst they work through this. Wacken promoters thank you for your trust during times which are unparalleled for all of us.

Stay healthy - In Metal We Trust!

The Wacken Open Air thanks you for the trust in this situation, which is unprecedented for everyone involved. More information about the Wacken Open Air can be found at
