This event needs its own thread, especially with all the news about reunited bands and the like.

wacken.com

Confirmed as of 11-18-07

At the Gates (reunited!)
Avantasia
Axxis
Carcass (Reunited!)
Children of Bodom
Crematory
Dream of an Opium Eater
Excrementory Grind****ers (lol)
Hatebreed (every festival needs a clunker)
Iron Maiden (Headlining, of course!)
Lord Belial
Killswitch Engage
Kreator
Krypteria
Saltatio Mortis
Sonata Arctica
The Bones (didn't think they were Wacken material... will be interesting)

So, who is going?
Thoughts/hopes about the lineup?
etc...

Naturally being a poor American teenager, the chances of me attending will be ultra-slim to none, but hey, i still have hope that in a few years the fest will be a kickass as it looks to be in 08.

discuss.

It just occurred to me that UG attracts a lot of socially isolated male teenagers with questionable psychological dispositions.

They always seem to choose one dumb band to play it every year. Last year was Bullet for my valentine (if i remember correctly), now its Hatebreed, lets hope they pull out as well!

But other then that, the line-up looks pretty sweet, too bad im a poor Australian boy (as long i see Amon Amarth in January, im happy!)

We should set up a UG Wacken group. Anyone else going? Would be sweet to meet up.

I'd love to go to Wacken. i know there's no way in hell I'd ever end up going though. I'd absolutely love to see most of those bands... Sonata and Kreator more than the others, mind you.

I would love to Wacken, only if Blind Guardian plays. I know for sure Blind Guardian is sure to do another Open-Air concert, and when it happens, I'm buying first class tickets to Germany. Till then, I must starve and save up money.

This year is looking awesome, but I know I can't go because I went earlier (the only way I managed to pull it off was cuz it was part of a broader family vacation: I live near San Francisco). However, I'm getting a job soon and me and a close friend of mine have a plan (budgeted and everything) to go when we graduate, as part of three week metal-vacation, with at least two festivals and lots of delicious European beer. It'll be in 2010.

Hopefully going. I'll wait a month or so to see what other bands are being booked. As much as I want to see Maiden and Carcass, 2 bands are not worth all that money.

And Hatebreed are actually pretty amazing live. I enjoyed their show with not knowing one song than COB's show, with knowing half the set.
Dyer's Eve is awesome, and has an abnormally large penis, which doesn't act as any hinderance to his everyday life despite its freakishly large size.

I'll be working my ass off and saving all my money to go. ****ing Carcass and At the Gates reuniting, can't miss it.

It's not a particularly appealing lineup to me yet, with the exception of the two reuniting bands.

Alright, I'll give them a try, Japanese Black Speed rarely disappoints.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

I was very surprised when I saw Hatebreed because they put on a great show.

I really wish I could go but it's just too much money.


I'll have a bourbon.

ATG and Carcass would be amazing too see but other than that it's nothing special.
Schecter C-1 Hellraiser
Peavey 5150
Vader Cabinet 4x12
Roland Cube 30X
Line 6 Toneport UX1
Morley Bad Horsie II


#26
I wish I could go, but there is no way my parents are letting me go to Germany and I don't have enough money to go. Man, Carcass, Bodom, Kreator, At the Gates, and Maiden at the same festival. That would be so kickass to go.
