Every year since 1990, in early August, the North of Germany shakes from the rumble of bass guitars, crashing drums and heavy rock festival, Wacken Open Air, which passes near the town of Wacken. Last year's feast of metal celebrated its 25th anniversary.
The scale and coolness Wacken confirms the fact that the tickets are not that diverge like hot cakes, and downright magic wand. Last year ALL tickets for the festival 2015 was sold out within 12 hours of entering them in the sale!

over 100 points of sale of food and just a huge number of a lot of beer!

Experienced visitors are recommended to prepare for the trip to the festival much in advance, that is, for 9-10 months, otherwise you can just stay without tickets, and their organizers released fairly limited for an event of this scale number is about 60 thousand. In addition to tickets, the stumbling block may be the visa to Germany. To her own problematic.
