After the festival has been postponed, we are now looking forward to Wacken Open Air 2022 which is scheduled from August 4 to 6, 2022.
The first announcements read as follows: “The Priest is back!” For the fourth time, the Metal Gods in Judas Priest are travelling to the Holy Ground.
25 years of In Extremo also need to be celebrated with a very special show at W:O:A. Finally, the time has also come for Limp Bizkit to delight the crowd with hits such as “Break Stuff” or “Rollin‘”.
Rose Tattoo fronted by singer Angry Anderson are part of the party as well, while the show of As I Lay Dying promises one of the roughest pits of the weekend.
Lacuna Coil have already been on the stages of the Wacken Open Air five times, but now half a dozen is finally being filled. For the splatter spectacle of Gwar it is better to throw on your protective suits, a good dose of Bay Area Thrash is served by Death Angel and Thundermother will deliver finest hard rock, made in Sweden. The appearance of Motörhead guitarist Phil Campbell and The Bastard Sons promises to be a very special highlight as well.
At their first visit All Hail The Yeti encouraged heavy headbanging and will do so again, while Wolves In The Throne Room are celebrating their Wacken debut. Old School Death Metallers can look forward to Crypta. With Auðn a promising band can be announced that had their breakthrough at the W:O:A Metal Battle 2016.
