”The Hamburg Metal Dayz” offer more than just good shows, the additional program can be considered as spectacular as this year’s band line up: What did you always want to know about the Wacken Open Air? Holger Hübner and Thomas Jensen are talking to fans about the biggest heavy metal festival in the world, general developments and the latest trends in the metal world.

One or the other exciting story from the backstage area is certainly included. Anecdotes, scandals and wild stories: Christof Leim, music journalist and musician (The New Black, Heavysaurus), tells the noisiest and funniest stories of 100 years of Rock’n’Roll history. Those stories are about great stars and great songs, accidents, and death cases, drugs, sex, and superlatives. Christof has worked as a journalist and musician for 20 years. He was basically born at the same time Kiss released their debut and received his first guitar when Zakk Wylde and Ozzy Osborne joined forces.

Later on, he became chief editor of Metal Hammer and writes among others for Welt am Sonntag, Guitar, and Rocks. Yoga teacher and metal fan Saskia Thode combines her two passions and has developed a coherent concept for metal fans: Metal Yoga.

The participants of the ”Hamburg Metal Dayz” are looking forward to an exciting experience that they may have never experienced before: screaming, beating and sweating to the most popular songs of the biggest metal bands. Every level of yoga experience is welcome – especially those who have never dared to try yoga before! Micha-El Goehre lives as an author, poetry slammer and presenter in Essen.

He regularly appears with solo shows at many venues and festivals and poetry slam stages in Germany, Austria, Luxembourg, Belgium, and Switzerland. As a poetry slammer, he has won hundreds of poetic battles and is the presenter of the slam “Rumpus + Tenderness” in Essen.

Ricky Wagner Ricky Wagner (lead guitar and vocalist of Rezet) takes you on a journey through his musical career and history of guitar playing. The studied guitar teacher shows you tips and tricks on how to take your guitar playing to a higher level and will also present some of his favorites Riffs, be it Rezet compositions or riffs that have had a lasting effect on him.

The exchange with the audience is desired and in focus, for beginners to professionals! Shouts, growls and screams, vocal techniques have become indispensable in metal since the 90s. But how does one shout, scream and growl without breaking ones‘ vocal cords?

The short coach Thomas Fischer knows exactly how and offers a workshop at the ”Hamburg Metal Dayz! Speak Metal – The Heavy Podcast” brings you weekly, absurd and sometimes profound metal words right into your ears. Jasper and Stefan have been dealing with music and the scene for years, some of them behind the scenes of W: O: A. In Speak Metal, they do not hold back with their personal opinions, so they blaspheme and hate, but often also spread love in the metal world.

For the ”Hamburg Metal Dayz 2018”, the two have planned something very special: Join the interactive, chaotic and above all funny live podcast and help them make another great show!

Just in time for his 70th birthday, Klaus Büchner, co-founder of Torfrock and the voice of the well-known cult
character Werner, published his first volume of poems “Hanebüchner” in Hamburg’s acabus Verlag in March
2018. The cult singer organizes his musical reading tour together with Christoph Stein-Schneider (Fury /
Wohnraumhelden). In an original way, the two artists combine prosaic reading and a musical show to create a
very special entertainment program.

Kai Havaii and Stefan Kleinkrieg, the frontman and songwriter duo of Extrabreat invite you to an evening full of anecdotes, stark stories, and legendary melodies: Havaii reads from his autobiography “Hart will Marmelade Erinnerungen Eines Wahnsinnigen“ and brings Extrabreit-Hits unplugged to sound with Kleinkrieg. A special kind of time travel: swift, funny and full of intensity.

The team of Black Pearl Tattoo from Husby near Flensburg is visiting the Hamburg Metal Dayz 2018 to adorn the skin of some lucky winners with little pieces of art.

More art can be seen at the exhibition from Killustrations. A small selection of Björn Gooßes´ works for e.g.
Hatesphere, Dew-Scented, Hackneyed or Sodom will be displayed at the ”Hamburg Metal Dayz”.
Jeremy Leeor and Dan Potter of Creative Works will speak about their multi-disciplinary branding and content creation studio and their collaborations with Guns N’ Roses and Aerosmith. With their unique Make It Live® a process they bring concerts to life. ”The Hamburg Metal Dayz” wouldn’t be complete without the moderation legend Maschine (“Maschines Late Night Show”) and his cult game Trash Bingo.
