Pole-sitting

Since 2011 pole-sitting is taking place at the Wacken Open Air. To take part in pole-sitting guest can register before and then win a VIP upgrade.

 

Rules:

The rules are fairly simple. The participants need to stay on one of the poles for 6 hours. Except for 10 minutes every 2 hours, the seat may not be left. Up there the participants can enjoy the festival in a height of 2.5 m and watch the bands on the Black, True and Party Stage

 

Donations:

Companies are taking over the sponsorship for the poles. For every hour the participants are sustaining on the pole the sponsors are donating € 10 to the Wacken Foundation. Additionally there is always at least one pole for people who would like to take a picture or shortly enjoy the view. For a little donation the guest can climb the pole and watch the spectacle from above - you do not have to register for this. Just com along!
