25 Years of Wacken This had to be celebrated in the right way!
This years Anniversary wasnt only special because of the amazing weather and mood but also relating to the very special line up including bands from all years of the festivals history. And also the DVD/Blu Ray needed to be something very special and was created with much love and dedication to evolve into an impressive chronicle of the Anniversary and the festival history itself.
25 Years Of Wacken Snapshots, Scraps, Thoughts Sounds documents every inch of the festival grounds via 3 expansive and immersive DVD’s and a lavishly produced scrapbook. Each DVD will cover an area of the Wacken experience. Disc one will bring together the very best main attraction live performances seen at Wacken on both the Black and True Metal stages, featuring the likes of (ACCEPT, SAXON, MOTRHEAD, AMON AMARTH, KREATOR, HAMMER FALL, AVANTASIA ). The second disc brings viewers to the second level of Wackneering via the top performances from the Party and Wackinger Stages, as well as the highlights of the all in amateur jam throw down Wacken Metal Battle, while the third disc will offer highlights from the Headbanger’s Stage and Wet Stage (the latter being inside the notorious Bullhead City Circus Tent). Each DVD sits in it’s own individual digipak, complete with a detailed content booklet.
The scrapbook will be a lavish, 200 page affair containing a year by year review from long time Wacken chronicler Tim Eckhorst, along with 300+ photos and various artifacts detailing how the festival grew to it’s current size and status. The DVD digipaks and scrapbook are housed in a classic black, cloth bound slipcase, and the entire project was a designed by another Wacken veteran, UDR GmbH art director and photographer Kai Swillus. Fittingly, 25 Years Of Wacken Snapshots, Scraps, Thoughts Sounds is a Wacken Foundation product, which means that all profits are channeled back into the foundation which in turn exists to help support and nurture new, fresh musical talent and offer aspiring artists a chance to realize their dreams and musical expressions.
