Best Major Festival – Wacken Open Air wins at the European Festival Awards
The 2018 edition of the Wacken Open Air has been chosen as the winner in the category of "best major festival" by the prestigious European Festival Awards by a combination of online voting and an expert jury consisting of promoters, booking agents, journalists, and other business professionals.
The Wacken Open Air 2018 had already received the Helga!-Award for "best festival" by the German event industry, which determines the winner through online voting in September of last year.
We gratefully thank all our staff, service providers, as well as associates and bands but especially our fans that provide us with valuable feedback and help us to improve the festival each year. Of course, our gratitude also extends to everybody who voted for the Wacken Open Air as well as to the jury for recognising our efforts in this way.
