    The organizers of Wacken have announced the first bands for next years 25th anniversary. They are:

    Amon Amarth
    Apocalyptica
    Arch Enemy
    Avantasia
    Behemoth
    Children of Bodom
    Emperor (20th anniversary of In the Nightside Eclipse show)
    Iced Earth
    King Diamond
    Kreator
    Prong
    Schandmaul

    If I can get a ticket before they sell out, I will go since I know people who are going that I can camp with, it's the easiest euro fest for me to go to.

    Don't they usually sell out very quickly? When do the other fests announce their lineups? I do want to go to a Euro fest next year, and Wacken might be it with this Emperor announcement...just don't know when the other ones start releasing their lineups so I can choose.

    They all start announcing around this time.

    And, yeah, Wacken sells out relatively fast. This years show sold out in about a month.

    Also good to remember that, according to Tobias Sammet, Avantasia's show next year at Wacken may very well be the last Avantasia show ever...

    Well, I won't be getting a ticket after all, didn't expect it to sell out in less than two fucking days!

    Avantasia and an Emperor reunion, with the King and Behemoth and you are surprised? I am surprised it took THAT long.

    Definitely but to be fair, it was the quickest sellout they've ever had.

    Yeah but so is Edguy and it's not nearly as much work for him to organize and put on.

    Is it still though? Sure seems Edguy is losing in popularity. That is true that is more work and money for that matter to do.

    Yes, and those four I mentioned were the reasons for it.
