The Christmas calendar for the world’s biggest heavy metal open air festival, Wacken Open Air, has started as of midnight on 1st December. The calendar works like a chocolate advent calendar; although instead of having chocolates every day, Wacken announces new bands and gives fans the opportunity to win prizes. The calendar is now online over at the Metaltix website. The two bands behind door number one are Stratovarius and Angra.
Stratovarius and Angra join the line-up of already confirmed bands:
U.D.O. (special orchestra show)
AMORPHIS (special “Tales From The Thousand Lakes” show)
BLACK LABEL SOCIETY
