Last Chance: Your Unsigned Band Can Win a Spot to Perform at Wacken Open Air 2017!


Wacken Open Air Metal Battle USA 2017When it comes to metal festivals the world over, Wacken Open Air is second to none. The German festival sells out within days of the mere DATES for next year’s event being revealed, without a single band having been announced. And with good reason: the festival’s organizers put together an insanely strong lineup from top to bottom every single year, and have been doing so since 1990.

How would you like for your unsigned band to perform for nearly 85,000 metalheads at the 2017 incarnation of the festival? Read on. But act quick! Because this is your last chance to enter!

MetalSucks has teamed up with several other websites and Wacken Open Air to present Wacken Metal Battle USA, in which one band will be chosen to perform at the world’s greatest metal festival. Bands will perform in a qualifying round and semi-finals in one of three US cities and will then go on to the finals in NYC where the winner will be crowned. Members of the MetalSucks staff and other metal industry experts will be on hand to judge the competitions.

Learn how to apply for Wacken Metal Battle USA here. The deadline to enter is December 2nd at 11:59pm EST.

See you at the first round!
