Wacken Foundation Camp 2016
This year, you will find the Foundation Camp on (Pos. # 20) directly next to the Beergardenstage and the Metal Market. We got some organisations, partners and companies from the previous years but we also got a hand full of new stuff which we would like to present you. Underneath you will find a list with which you get a quick overview of everything you can find and what we offer in the Foundation camp. A information list for the W:O:Art – Tent will be published separately.
The core of the Foundation Camp will be our information point. Visitors get informed about the work of the foundation and what it stands for. Additionally, you can buy lighter, pens and other stuff with a Wacken Foundation branding.
Goal scoring & Wheel of Fortune
Try your luck on our W:O:A goal scoring wall and get nice presents for a small fee. Directly next to it, you will find our famous Wheel of Fortune, each spin guarantees one prize.
Participants who manage it to sit 6 hours on a pole, receive a W:O:A VIP-Ticket-Upgrade. Each pole is sponsored by a company which is paying an amount of money to the foundation for each hour the person is sitting on the pole.
Deposit Collecting Campaign
Volunteers of the foundation will collect cups, cans and PET-Bottles from the festival area. The money which will be generated through the deposit will flow directly into the foundations account.
