Wacken Rocks Brazil!

Aug 6th, 2008

An announcement of the W:O:A organisers…

Dear Metalheads!

With the 19th W:O:A just being finished there are some more breaking news:

Wacken rocks Brazil!

Already during the festival days the W:O:A organisers announced that the first Brazilian Heavy Metal Open Air will take place from 16. – 17.05.2009 in Sao Paulo under the name of “Wacken rocks Brazil”.

There has been a close friendship with Sao Paulo for several years. Brazil was also one of the first countries to take part in the international newcomer contest of the Wacken Open Air – the “Metal Battle”. Last year the Brazilian band “Torture Squad” was celebrated as the winner of the Metal Battle 2007.

Heavy Metal has a huge fan base in Brazil. Even though the number of Brazilians going to the Wacken Open Air rises continuously there are many fans who are unable to travel to Europe which is why the decision was made for this extraordinary event export.

The organisers of Wacken have decided to export the spirit of the Wacken Open Air to Brazil. However, it will not simply be a “copy” of the Wacken Open Air as – the original is and remains in Wacken!

The “Wacken rocks Seaside” this year was already a successful trial. Like in Wacken and Aurich, the main focus in Brazil will be on the festival and the Heavy Metal community.

The festival itself is the headliner and the bands will play their Best Of program…

We look forward to next year and are glad that for the very first time we can say: 

Faster – Harder – Louder  >> see you in Sao Paulo 2009 – rain or shine <<
