I believe that my ancestors lived there and originally they came from somewhere in Denmark.

Gojira, Tremonti, Destruction & Rezet at W:O:A

We can announce 4 new bands and new "theme day" for the upcoming W:O:A!

Gojira will return to Wacken!
The French band Gojira must undoubtedly be on every list of these days most exciting metal bands. With each new album, they easily manage to break down the boundaries of the genres. Without ever sounding arbitrary and interchangeable or sacrificing their own trademarks!

Whether you call it Technical Death Metal, Progressive Death Metal, Progressive Groove or simply Metal, one thing is clear for sure: Gojira always deliver high class!

Tremonti will join Wacken for the very first time! Head of the band is Mark Tremonti, who is already well known as guitarist of Creed and co-founder of Alter Bridge. With Tremonti, he can now follow his own musical visions. To do this proper, he isn't only playing the guitar but also took over the lead vocals.

Destruction will smash the Wacken Open Air 2018 too! The German thrash metal pioneers haven't played at the holy land since 2007, but now it is finally time for them to return!

Last but not least: Rezet Rezet are another new addition for our lineup. Semi-official, the band has already played Wacken twice, namely in the old Metal Market tent, which had a separate program.

They will be part of the new Wasted Wednesday: The Wasteland Stage, which has been repeatedly upgraded in recent years, will be conquered by a terrific, old-school thrash and speed metal lineup. Get rid of your hangover in no time and bang your head to some solid metal!


GET YOUR W:O:A-TICKET NOW AT METALTIX!

W:O:A 2018 – 02.08. - 04.08.
With: Judas Priest, Nightwish, In Flames, Ghost, Helloween - Pumpkins United, Running Wild, Behemoth, Dimmu Borgir, Arch Enemy, Children Of Bodom, In Extremo, Hatebreed, Gojira, Steel Panther, Doro, Dirkschneider, Samael, Cannibal Corpse, Schandmaul, Destruction, Clawfinger, Korpiklaani, Eskimo Callboy, Die Apokalyptischen Reiter, Converge, Riot V, Epica, Tremonti, Wintersun, Oomph!, Amorphis, Vince Neil and many more acts!
