The new announcements are complemented by five fan favorites such as Hämatom with their only festival show in 2021, Australian hard rock veterans Rose Tattoo and the dark metal masters MoonspellLordi have come up with a "Special Horror Castle Show" and thus fit even better with the annual festival motto "Horror" than they already did before!

"We are truly grateful for our fans trust they had given us - without even knowing about our line-up plans! Therefore we hope that they are as happy as we are about the first announcements for 2021. We are still in contact with many bands that were planned for this year, as well as have a few surprises for you, that we will unveil in the upcoming months," explains W:O:A festival co-founder Holger Hübner.

Thomas Jensen adds: "As there is so much far away from normality this year, we wanted to keep our tradition to announce the very first bands on our line-up for the upcoming festival edition. We can hardly wait to welcome these and many other great artists to Wacken next year. We will use the time until then to prepare a spectacular live experience with our next years‘ new motto 'horror'."
