WACKEN OPEN AIR First bands Announced

Wacken open air festival line up poster 2013 DEEP PURPLE

The biggest metal party of the year is still in full swing and even though the weather tried to dampen spirits, the festival has still been an unbelievable success thanks in no small part to the fans cool-headed attitude (and listening to Wacken about not arriving too early!).

The gates to Wacken 2012 have not yet closed, but as last year’s pre sale was such a success, the same is happening again this year so get those credit cards at the ready.

Pre-sales of the W:O:A X-Mas Package 2013 begins on Monday August 6th at midnight, and to whet your appetite, here are some of the first booked bands…

Anthrax 
10 albums and more than 30 years band history – Anthrax is one of the most known and honored Metal bands worldwide.
It´s been a while since they played W:O:A the last time and 2013 it´s gonna be a blast!

Lingua Mortis Featuring Rage 
Rage will be supported by the Lingua Mortis orchestra. And as far as we all know Peavey Wagner and Victor Smolski this will be an amazing highlight.

Subway To Sally
Being one of the most-known bands from the medieval genre, Subway To Sally are already kind of an institution at W:O:A. We are happy having them again next year.
