WACKEN OPEN AIR: To Announce New Band on Easter Sunday

Will Wacken rock us like a hurricane?

Heavy metal’s biggest and longest running heavy metal open air, Wacken Open Air, and their co-founder, Thomas Jensen, announced via their social media that a new band will be confirmed on Easter Sunday, 16 April 2017. View the teaser video below.

In the video, Jensen claims that the band already performed at the festival and that the band has been around since the 60s.

Who could it be? Scorpions? Judas Priest? Accept? My bet is on Scorpions.

Wacken Open Air is set to take place during the first week of August, 3rd – 5th August 2017. Bands already confirmed include Alice Cooper, Amon Amarth, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Batushka, Sacred Reich, British Lion, Candlemass, Europe, Emperor, Kreator, Megadeth and many, many more.

Tickets are still available. Head over to the official website for your Wacken fix.

I started this website in 2011 because I always had a burning passion of sharing music and keeping people informed about what's going on in the metal and rock worlds. If I am not sitting in a dark room in front of a computer, listening to some obscure music (or Whitesnake), then I am usually found at a concert or a festival interviewing bands (or drinking beer).
