There is a storm brewing! The message of the international press represents a unanimous opinion:ACCEPT’s “Best Of All Albums Ever”!
ACCEPT are a phenomenon. The current news of success for the new album set the bar high and demonstrates in a powerful manner that ACCEPT do not only belong to the elite of the Heavy Metal scene over decades, but actually are in the fast lane.
A big masterpiece entails big moments. In September ACCEPT start their “Blind Rage World Tour Part 1”. Prior to their world tour, ACCEPT exclusively enter the stage for two mega events in Europe.

Founded in the 70′s Accept are pioneers in terms of metal music and have gained cult status by now.
The band will be playing a special Restless and Wild/ Best Of set. Restless and Wild was their fourth studio album which has had a great impact on the world of metal not only because Fast as a Shark is considered to be the very first speed metal song at all. We are thrilled to see them play their epic show. This will definitely be a “Night to Remember”!
We are going to celebrate our anniversary as promised with bands from all the different stages of the festival history. As always it is our goal to bring you a good mixture of old metal veterans and some fresh blood. We think this makes the perfect Line-up for a 25th Anniversary!
We are very happy to have such bands as 5th Avenue, Axe ‘n Sex, Sacred Season or Skyline in our Line-up because they performed at the very first Wacken Open Air and therefore laid the basis for the festival itself.
Other companions like Saxon, Motörhead, Kreator, Hammerfall and Tobi Sammet of Avantasia + special guests will perform live on stage due to our jubilee. Accompanied by some newcomers and bands which haven’t played at the festival in a long time, for example Megadeth, King Diamond or Carcass.
25 years of Wacken Open Air – a journey through time and metal history – be prepared and get excited for the greatest heavy metal party of the year!!
“East Coast, we heard you loud & clear!” – US fans will be the first to get a glimpse of the new “BLIND RAGE” songs live.
