Thanks so much, Stephan!


We are very happy to announce, that we could win EMP as another generous sponsor. Due to the Hamburg Metal Dayz we were in contact with the company for quite some time and repeatedly received donations of goods. But when we got the response regarding the festival tour 2017, we were taken by complete surprise. EMP sent us – believe it or not 1,240 t-shirts and 2,000 flags, which you can win at various raffles during our festival tour!




ThiesMediCenter has been a supporter of the Wacken Foundation over the years.Every metalhead is able to purchase their own Wacken style wheelchair spoke protector with the motto “You’ll never roll alone” on it at and they have a special servicepoint on the festival ground.


Additional to that Thies MediCenter gives 10% of every wheelchair spoke protector purchased on this site directly to the Wacken Foundation.



Wacken Love Locks

The original Wacken Love Locks are still available online. Here you can choose between eight different motifs and add the engraving of your choice.


€ 25 of each sold lock are being used to support metal newcomers. Would that not be a good present - for yourself our your friends and family?



Wacken Coffee

With Wacken Kaffee we have found a great and long-standing partner. The coffee gets roasted directly in Wacken from choice beans and just tastes like Heavy Metal!


Since 2010 the coffee roasters release a special coffee tin for the W:O:A. The special edition is designed like the W:O:A design of the year. With every sold tin the coffee roasters donate 0,20€ to the Wacken Foundation and support the newcomer metalbands.


Who wants to see the roaster and taste the "hard stuff out of the metal town" is invited to visit the Café in Wacken.

Thank you very much for your support!



Insane Guitars

Thomas Schultz builds guitars himself according to his taste and according to customer wishes. On he distributes them.


He also already built a guitar for the Wacken Foudnation in Wacken skull look. We were allowed to auction it in favour of metal bands and the outcome were fantastic € 1,260. We are looking forward to 2016 already. Thanx for your support!
