I have bought my first festival-ticket for summer 2011! Okay, I bought it long time ago, but I get it to me last weeks friday!
... say hello to my Wacken Open Air 2011 -3 days *ALL IN* ticket- !!!
At this moment, W:O:A 2011 is SOLD OUT! I guess that if you wanna come to W:O:A you can find some tickets from eBay, or if your country is making trip to W:O:A, ask very soon is there any places left!
And for finnish people ; Elmu has still some tickets left (trip-tickets), read more HERE!
Notice, that you need to be fast, you have only THIS MONTH time to get contact to Elmu and say that you're intressed!!! Read more of the link what I put.
But the question is ; What bands are this year in W:O:A?
I will now put here ALL BANDS who gonna play there and then after the band name put my opinion them, am I gonna go to see them and so on :) Bands who I'm waiting for the most is in pink colour.
Let's start the show!
Accuser - Never heard.
Airbourne - This band kick asses! I saw them first time in Sauna Open Air 2008 (?) and they totally stole my heart!
Apocalyptica - Last year I saw them in W:O:A, even it was a "secret" show! This year have to see them too, they're awesome!
As I Lay Dying - Haven't listen this band so much nowdays, but I like their attitude and music style. So definitely gonna check them!

Children of Bodom - One of the biggest reasons why I buy the ticket. It doesn't matter if in W:O:A would be only COB and all other bands would be not so good - the feeling in the area is something what you can't tell in words! Can't wait this :)
