Vom 1. bis zum 3. August 2013 fand das weltweit größte Metal Festival mit 75.000 Teilnehmern, zum bereits 24. Mal in Wacken, einem kleinen, beschaulichen 1800 Seelen Dorf in der Nähe von Itzehoe statt.

Das Festival hat sich über die Jahre stetig weiterentwickelt, angefangen hat es 1990 auf einem anderen, viel kleineren Gelände bei Wacken, mit grade mal 800 Teilnehmern.

Nach langer Überzeugungsarbeit durfte ich dann im Herbst letzten Jahres mein Ticket bestellen.

Campingkocher, Schlafsack und Zelt eingepackt, dann ging es auch schon kurz vor dem letzten Ferienwochenende los. Mit der Regionalbahn nach Itzehoe, von dort aus ging es mit dem Shuttlebus weiter. Nach ca. 20 Minuten kamen wir auf dem Festivalgelände an. Der erste Nachmittag war noch etwas langweilig, da noch keine Bands spielten, am nächsten Tag ging es dafür so richtig los.

Die musikalischen Highlights waren vor allem der Headliner Rammstein mit Heino als Unterstützung (was nicht bei jedem Fan gut ankam), Nightwish, Alice Cooper und Motörhead, Frontmann Lemmy Kilmister musste den Auftritt aus gesundheitlichen Gründen jedoch nach einer halben Stunde abbrechen.

Wie sich einige vielleicht noch erinnern können, war es in den letzten Sommerferientagen ziemlich heiß, doch zum Glück regnete es nach einem Tag dann doch, was den gesamten Zeltplatz und vor allem die Wege in ein ziemliches Moor verwandelte. Dieser Regen brachte, wie jedes Jahr, die Schlammcatcher. Schlammcatcher? Das sind die Verrückten, die in scheinbar jede Pfütze gesprungen sind und in diesen auch ausgiebig gebadet haben. Ich kann mich noch erinnern wie jemand nach einem ausgiebigen Bad aufstand, und ihm ein Vorbeilaufender sein mittlerweile schwer als ein solches identifizierbares iPhone in die Hand drückte…

Was außerdem noch auffiel, war die Freundlichkeit der Teilnehmer. Das Klischee des asozialen Metal-Fans wurde also überhaupt nicht bedient.

Naja, das wars auch schon, ich habe mein Ticket für 2014 in letzter Sekunde bestellt (Das 25. Wacken Open Air war schon nach 44 Stunden ausverkauft), also:

See you in Wacken, rain or shine!
