Wacken Open Air Struggles with Flooding from Torrential Rainstorms, As its Organizers Vow to Put On The Festival


 

Awful weather is plaguing Wacken, Germany – the home of this week’s legendary Wacken Open Air Festival. The festival grounds and surrounding areas have had massive flooding and continued storms putting the event in doubt, and causing many fans to be unable to attend. Still, in spite of the dire weather and at times dangerous conditions according to a published report from the AP, the festival organizer Thomas Jensen has shared a message, hoping to put on the festival somehow. The festival has limited capacity, has done a lot to direct fest-goers to shelter, safety, food (and beer), and seem to be pulling out all the stops in an effort to carry one. We have several friends and colleagues at Wacken and hope for their safe return. WOA 2023 is headlined by Iron Maiden, Dropkick Murphys, Megadeth, Jinjer, Beartooth, and many more artists. Please see a series of messages on the fest’s Facebook group and we’ll bring you more news on this as it develops.
