Starting Today: Live Stream Select Performances from Wacken Open Air!

  • Axl Rosenberg

Wacken Open Air 2015If you’re reading this, you are probably not at this year’s annual Wacken Open Air — arguably the most revered metal festival in the world — because, y’know… if you’re at Wacken, why the fuck would you be reading anything right now, you loser?

But that doesn’t mean you get in all the Wacken fun. Metal Underground reports that “select acts will be streaming live from the internet and German TV (also through the net) via ARTE concert at this location and 3sat at this location.” Is it as good as being there? No, but it’s the next best thing! Maybe you can watch it outdoors and recruit some Germans to mosh with you, so it feels more like you’re there? I dunno, just a suggestion.
