WackenOpenAir|47 Hauptstraße Wacken, GermanyFind an Airbnb
Each year a brass band comprised of Wacken's volunteer firefighters kicks off the festival. Metalheads go crazy for the oom-pah'ing tradition.
Many Wacken villagers set up makeshift bars in their front yard, an excellent way to immerse in the culture.
They may be a noisy, muddy, beer-strewn mess, but the festival's campgrounds are awesome for fun and convenience.
It's worth the small entrance fee to check out the vast array of CDs, vinyl, T-shirts and spiky gear. Workshops and fashion shows are also part of the package.
Trust us: at least one naked person will sprint across your path during the festival.
Most people stay at the festival's sprawling campgrounds.
