Live At Wacken

25 Years Of Wacken - Snapshots, Scraps, Thoughts & Sounds

On 24th november 2014, Silver Lining Music celebrates the silver anniversary of the biggest cultural heavy metal festival in the world, W:O:A Open Air. It has grown from a small-town party to a republic all of it’s own, a nation built by the international heavy metal community for everyone and anyone who wants to participate in several days of music, mayhem and uninhibited revelry. It all puts W:O:A Open Air alongside the elite likes of Glastonbury and Burning Man as not just a musical explosion, but a cultural experience.

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, MOTÖRHEAD, AMON AMARTH, KREATOR, HAMMERFALL, 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 designed by another Wacken veteran, 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.

25 Years Of Wacken - Snapshots, Scraps, Thoughts & Sounds will be released in both standard DVD and Blu-Ray disc formats, and can be found at your favorite local or online retailer.

25 Years Of Wacken - Snapshots, Scraps, Thoughts & Sounds guarantees viewers (and readers) many, many, many hours of entertainment. Which is as it should be … after all, a cultural event of this repeated magnitude could never be absorbed in one sitting!
