Iron Maiden, Megadeth To Headline Wacken Open Air 2023

Heavy metal legends Iron Maiden and Megadeth are set to headline next year’s edition of the Wacken Open Air festival in Germany.

Wacken Open Air, which takes place annually in the village of Wacken, is scheduled for August 2-5, 2023.

The first Wacken Open Air event took place in 1990 and drew just 800 people. However, its popularity has increased sharply since then. The 32-year old festival now sees nearly 85,000 people in attendance.

The 2023 edition of Wacken Open Air was first announced last week and within six hours, 80,000 tickets were sold.

Wacken Open Air organizers said in a statement, “Metalheads! We absolutely cannot 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!”

Wacken Open Air 2023 will also feature The Dropkick Murphys, Wardruna, Jinjer, Beartooth and more.
