The 31st edition of the ‘Wacken Open Air’, which will take place from the 30th of July until the 01st of August 2020, is sold out after less than a day. The advance sale of the 75,000 tickets had traditionally started after the festival at midnight on Monday, August 05th. Fans from 83 countries have purchased tickets.
“We are stoked that tickets for the ‘Wacken Open Air 2020’ have again sold out in a sensationally short period of time”, comments festival founder Thomas Jensen. “The great success of this year's anniversary edition and our announcement of the first bands for next year have obviously convinced our fans that they can rely on us for which we are extremely thankful. Well, it also might be that the reason for this humbling vote of confidence is that Metal god Rob Halford will celebrate 50 years of JUDAS PRIEST in ‘Wacken’”.
“It is our declared goal to create an even greater festival every new year”, adds festival founder Holger Hübner. “We can only thank our fans wholeheartedly for relying on our experience to put together another exciting band billing. Of course, metal music always comes first, but also the supporting program will again offer innovations. We will make every effort to live up to the advance praise of this quick sell-out”.
The Promoters point out that no third-party tickets should be purchased - with the exception of the official travel partners listed HERE.
