[Hard Rock/Metal] Wacken Open Air 2020 - free concerts online

Just a heads-up: Since the original event was canceled, they decided to have free concerts online July 29th - August 1st:

Wacken World Wide

Enjoy :D

Ooh thanks for the heads up! Just wish I could make sense out of that timetable.
Just a lowly standard player, often found in global 2.

It's GMT+2 starting tomorrow. So if you're a New Yorker, the party starts at 11 am and winds up around 7pm. Shred accordingly!
"How do you lure the Elder to the centre of the Atlas?"
"A box trap with some candy should do the trick"
The timetable for today was updated - they probably wait until everything is confirmed and ready to go.

So... this was actually better than expected. There were several nice touches like inserting people's selfies into the virtual crowd and whoever came up with the headbanging cows really deserves a raise :D.

The live bands seemed to be comfortable with playing on a stage without an actual audience and the Zoom concerts were quite fun to watch, too, with people rocking out in their living rooms, attics and basements.

Definitely an excellent idea and a well organised event.
Missed Blind guardian, stayed up until 6am to catch Sabaton. That was really badass, with the tank boys as hammy and energetic as ever. The 'mixed reality' concept worked far better than it really should have. I LOVED the headbanging cows.

What a stellar adaptation to this new (and hopefully not permanent) normal.
I am W James Chan, author of Blackcloak: A Man of His Sword, the novel from which the PoE unique Oni-Goroshi is derived. So if you liked that, give the book a go on Amazon. I think it's pretty good -- but like Her, it isn't to be come at lightly, and it definitely isn't what it first seems to be.

I've seen Speed Metal Dolly Parton before https://youtu.be/v-RSM6dso3w?list=FLTahxt3pNw2sZ0zeRcf0nJw,
but not head banging cows. Any good links to the relevant Bovid Metal Heads?

Nothing on Youtube, yet, but if you want to chase them down yourself - or for anyone who missed concerts, there might be a chance to treat yourselves: most of the festival (entire days and most of the individial concerts) is available online but the content of Magenta TV is usually region locked and only available in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. However, since this was a free worldwide event, maybe it's worth to check it out: Wacken|MagentaMusik 360

Cows requested, cows supplied. Can confirm both work in Australia.

On phone. Feel free to timestamp as you will.

Sorry to veer off topic, but not sorry enough to not do it anyway:

I found this guy's channel the other day and had a giggle. Since it looks like there are already some metal heads here, have a gander.
