Blabbermouth.net reports that the bill for Wacken 2012, the legendary German metal festival, is coming together quite nicely.
The fest runs from August 2 to 4 next year and currently looks like this:
AXEL RUDI PELL
CRADLE OF FILTH
HENRY ROLLINS (spoken word)
SICK OF IT ALL
SIX FEET UNDER
That’s Dark Funeral, as opposed to ‘Light, Happy, Cheery Funeral’, I guess.
Expect Wacken to have sold out by the end of the year, as it so often does – a European festival which has none of the hype of a Glastonbury or Reading yet manages to sell in excess of seventy thousand tickets every year, well in advance of the event.
But, being a Metal event, that’s not a news story. Figures.
