Wacken on free TV and in the live stream: Who is broadcasting the festival Friday today?

Metalheads from all over the world make the pilgrimage to Wacken again to indulge in rock music. Those who are not there live can follow the festival on TV and in the stream.

After two years of the compulsory Corona break, pogo, head-banging and beer pong are finally back on the agenda, because the Wacken Festival attracts around 75,000 visitors to the tranquil community in Schleswig-Holstein. As usual, the tickets went faster than you can say “Slipknot”. If you’re not one of the lucky ones who can call a card their own, you don’t have to bury your french fork in the sand right away. This year you can watch Wacken from the comfort of your own sofa – and for free.

The official trailer provides a first foretaste:
