Author Benedetta Baldin - 14.4.2023

With a statement on their official website, Wacken has finally revealed the fourth headliner, who might not be so fond of eggs but loves pumpkins: Helloween. They are no strangers to Wacken stages, and it will be exciting to have Andi and Michael both back on and at it together!

Another huge new name on the list is Biohazard. Wacken managed to bring them to Teutonia for one Festival Gig – in the original line-up, meaning we get to see Billy Grazadiel, Bobby Hambel, Danny Schuler, and Evan Seinfeld reunited for the first time in over 10 years.

But that’s not all, and more than 40 more legendary bands and also exciting newcomers will reinforce the billing:

Saltatio Mortis, Santiano, Igorrr, Vixen, Leaves Eyes, Brands of Sacrifice, Terror, Skyline, Peter Pan Speedrock, Cypecore, Empire State Bastard, Twilight Force, The Vintage Caravan, Eivor, Crematory, Tanzwut, Mr. Hurley & die Pulveraffen, Raging Speedhorn, Harpyie, Ad Infinitum, Frozen Soul, Ereb Altor, Riot City, Dezperadoz, The Good the Bad and the Zugly, Havukruunu, Marco Mendoza, Ye Banished Privateers, Neverland in Ashes, Screamer, Venues, Brunhilde, Our Promise, Eyes, Autumn Bride, Sable Hills, All Hail The Yeti, Focus, Asrock, Unzucht, Blaas of Glory, Frog Bog Dosenband and die beschissenen Sechs!
