What Wacken organization says about the Wacken 2023 sold-out record?
Thomas Jensen: “A sold-out festival in that amount of time – unbelievable. And especially in these times the backing of the community is enormously important. We are still knocking off the dust of this year’s Open Air and now, thanks to the trust of our fans, we can continue to fully concentrate on the program in 2023 under the motto “Vikings”, which will have one or two highlights in the bag in addition to the great Iron Maiden!”
Holger Hübner: “This is an enormous proof of confidence from our fans and we appreciate it very much. This allows us to push Wacken Open Air forward and develop various projects and themes alongside the billing, which we will announce during the year.”
Here are the first lineups of Wacken Open Air 2023:
- IRON MAIDEN
- THE DROPKICK MURPHYS
- TWO STEPS FROM HELL
- BURNING WITCHES
