Wacken Open Air has already announced the first bands for 2020
Wacken Open Air just took place last weekend but has already dropped the first names for 2020. One of the biggest Metal festivals in the World promises Judas Priest and a Mercyful Fate reunion.
Also confirmed for the 31th edition are At The Gates, Amon Amarth, Hypocrisy, Nervosa, Venom, Sick Of It All, Death Angel, Sodom and Cemican. However not all are good news. It was confirmed by the festival's founders that the 2020 edition is already sold-out. Traditionally Wacken Open Air starts selling tickets the day after the festival ends. This year it took only 21 hours to sell out.
Fans from 83 countries logged in and bought all the 75,000 available tickets. Festival founder Thomas Jensen stated that "We are sitting here in Wacken and are honestly overwhelmed by what just happened: Wacken Open Air 2020 sold out in 21 hours, all 75,000 tickets are gone! Thank you for your incredible loyalty, and the faith you put in us!"
Next Wacken Open Air is taking place from July 30th through August 1st.
