Imagine you wake up in the morning and the first noise you hear is an endless loop of the Cantina Band’s song (the one from Family Guy). If right after that song some other funny music is going to be played… you are at Wacken (or most likely at any other festival).
So what songs did we listen to in the very first hours of a new day?
Of course there were many more but these are the ones that were played the most.
The other part of the day we enjoyed the some shopping and visiting the Wackinger Village. There was as well a nice performance at the Wasteland area – they were driving Mad Max kind of vehicles. Really cool!
Our personal running order for that day was a bit too short. We only listened to three bands: TSJUDER and MARDUK on the W:E:T stage and at the end of the day we had a short listening session with IRON MAIDEN. As Bianca and I are not real Maiden fans we just listened a few songs and then headed back to the camp.
Impressive: During their performance the infield and the whole area in general was incredibly full. You can get an impression from the pictures above. What you can’t see is that all the way back to the exit there was a huge crowd of people you had to pass to leave the area. Really crazy.
Overall it was a quite relaxing day – and now as I am writing this post a feel a bit sad that we didn’t visit more bands during the day. Yeah – a reason to improve behavior at the next festival!
That’s it. Thank you for reading! Stay tuned for the other days posts.
