“It gets your heart pumping, your adrenaline going. It’s definitely by far the best festival in the world for metal.”
Jeff Waters, Annihilator

(Toronto – October 7, 2015)  You don’t know head banging til you experienced the biggest bang of all.


Award-winning director Norbert Heitker hands you an all access pass to the largest Metal hang in the World – WACKEN, the most iconic festival film since WOODSTOCK. 


Imagine what it’s like to be up on stage with DEEP PURPLE, see the curtain rise and feel the vibe of the first few bars of Smoke on the Water. Then imagine floating above an endless sea of people while the thunderous music of this concert takes off.  


Filmed with 18 stereoscopic 3D cameras, WACKEN 3D - LOUDER THAN HELL lets you crowd-surf and mud-dive, in a no-holds barred exploration of the biggest open air heavy metal festival in the world.




Every year, for three days in August, a sleepy farming village in the middle of a Northern German countryside becomes the epicenter of the metal universe. Close to 75,000 metal heads from around the globe invade the Wacken Open Air to pay homage to the greatest bands of the international metal scene. The first Wacken Open Air in 1990 attracted less than 800 attendees but since then it has grown every year. Now it is the biggest open air festival of its kind.


Witness the showmanship, raw energy, and euphoria, that is surprising, funny, noisy and uninhibited. This is a one-time only experience and an absolute must-see for every metal fan in the world!
