Wacken 2022 just ended, but if you didn’t get tickets within the first six hours of them being on sale, you’re probably stayin’ home next year, because all tickets for Wacken 2023 have been sold out! The next iteration of the festival will take place between August 2 and 5, and so far features the following lineup:
Iron Maiden, Megadeth, The Dropkick Murphys, Wardruna, Jinjer, Beartooth, Two Steps From Hell, Ensiferum, Deicide (Legion show), Pentagram (50th anniversary show), Nervosa, Burning Witches
In a statement, festival organizers said “Metalheads! We absolutely cannnot believe what just happened: The Wacken Open Air 2023 is completely sold out after a record time of 6 hours — all 80,000 tickets are sold out! Thanks for your incredible loyalty, support and the trust you give us!”
“A sold-out festival in that amount of time — unbelievable,” added promoter Thomas Jensen. “And especially in these times, the backing of the community is enormously important.
