IMPORTANT!!! Travel and weather update!
we've got an update for you: The crew is still working hard and giving their to best to make sure the site and especially the driveways are safe. Tractors are applying huge amounts of wood chips in the area. Just a few moments ago we had another heavy downpour – it looked like all of Heaven's floodgates had been opened at once!
We explained the circumstances in all their graveness in another message earlier today. This recent downpour has worsened the situation and more rain is to be expected.
Therefore, we have an urgent request for you, especially for all visitors travelling from other parts of Schleswig-Holstein, Hamburg, Lower Saxony or Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania: Please consider using public transportation!
There are plenty of trains taking you to Itzehoe (you can find all services using our travel tool: http://www.wacken.com/anfahrt-widget/index-en.php).
From the train station, you can easily get on our shuttle bus to Wacken which will take you straight to the festival area. All information on the shuttles is available here.
We hope for your cooperation! Please read the news from earlier again!
See you in Wacken – rain or shine!
Your W:O:A Crew
