Preview Wacken Open Air & Wacken Wednesday 2022 with Lindemann, Slipknot, Judas Priest, Limp Bizkit, In Extremo, As I Lay Dying, Grave Digger, Rose Tattoo, New Model Army, Danko Jones and many more

The biggest metal festival in the world is back! Over 70 thousand metal heads from all over the world have been making the pilgrimage to the small village in Schleswig-Holstein every year since 1990. Once again, more than 100 bands will play on nine stages on an area of over 240 hectares. This year’s headliners will be LINDEMANN, SLIPKNOT, JUDAS PRIEST, LIMP BIZKIT and IN EXTREMO.

After the two year break, the organizers of the Wacken Open Air wanted to make the festival even bigger. As a result, they have created the Wacken Wednesday. On the Wednesday before the official start of the festival, five exclusive bands will already be playing. If you want to take part in Wacken Wednesday, you need the extra ticket for this day in addition to the regular ticket.
