After this year’s Wacken Open Air had to be postponed due to the pandemic, the promoters declare today that there won’t be a regular presale for W:O:A 2022. During the changeover, more than 95% of the fans to decided to hold on to their tickets. The few remaining tickets for the festival scheduled from August 4th through 8th in 2022, with bands such as Judas Priest, Slipknot, Till Lindemann already being confirmed, will be assigned randomly among interested people on a mailing list.
Managing director of WOA Festival GmbH Holger Hübner states this about the feedback regarding festival:
„We are deeply moved by the backing we have received from our fans over the past months. The fact that the percentage of people keeping their tickets is even higher than last year marks another highlight prompting us to wholeheartedly say: thanx for your support, Metalheads! It is an honor to able to create events for you“.
His partner Thomas Jensen adds:
”With the entries on our list for people interested in tickets far exceeding the contingent still available, W:O:A 2022 is practically sold out. We understand this as a signal from the fans, telling us they’re as hungry for live music as we are. We can hardly await the reunion with them – with some joining us already in September for our new event format Bullhead City!“
Said Bullhead City is taking place on September 16, 17 and 18th 2021, in Wacken. Blind Guardian, Nightwish, Powerwolf and many more will be performing on four stages. More information is can be found under https://www.wacken.com/en/
