Metalheads, we are absolutely speechless! Wacken Open Air 2024 is SOLD OUT!

All tickets (Faster & Harder) for the W:O:A 2024 are completely sold out in record time of 4,5 hours! We are more than grateful and humbled for your trust!

Especially after the difficult start of the festival this summer, where a part of our metal family couldn’t celebrate with us, we really appreciate that the community stands by us and sticks together. The fact that all 85,000 tickets are gone is simply amazing! You are the best fans in the world! So we can’t wait to celebrate another superlative metal party with you next year.

Since some payments are still unsuccessful at the moment, it may still be possible to purchase individual tickets in the coming hours – so feel free to try your luck on the ticket page.

Thanks for your incredible loyalty, support and the trust you give us!

Next year we will start the new season under the motto Warlocks & Witches, so stay tuned for what we will pull out of the hat for you!
