I need a bit of advice from those of you fortunate enough to be attending Wacken this year. You see my son graduates from High School next year and I want to take him to next year's show as a graduation gift. I was hoping that those of you attending (especially those who will be staying at a hotel) could post any tips on the following. 1. Where to buy tickets? 2. When should I start trying to buy tickets for next year's show? 3. Where can I find a decent hotel that won't break me? As for the last item, I don't need a 4 star but I do prefer something with its own bathroom. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. My son has had perfect attendance, played football and stayed on the honor roll for most of his school life. I would really like to give him this reward.
