Wacken Open Air Metal Festival 1.-3.8 2002

Wednesday

Our plan was to get to Wacken by a rented car as Maku would fly to Hannover (free trip) and there rent a car which he then drove to Hamburg airport where Susanne and Simon would have arrived. After some waiting the ride arrived and we got on with our trip.

Enroute through the village, the roadsides were crowded by men in black.

We soon found our basecamp, not far from the last year site on the C camping-area.

So we raised up the flags and enjoyed the sun. This year special was a canvas on the ground, which prevented the dust from getting into the tents.

Soon we got visitors, attracted by our music. As the day grew hot a lot of german water in it's various froms had to be consumed.

Medium

Although it had a strange effect on some of us.

Medium

'Mä en tiedä edes mikä PÄIVÄ tänään on!'

Medium

Other chose to travel with style (german?).

Medium

Some of our younger ones had to go and take their afternoon nap.

Medium

While others continued to wait for the festival to begin.

Medium

We also met our friends from last year, Frank, Frank and Frank (Stephan, Frank and Andreas).

Medium

Our eldest, Maku and Lemon seemed to remember how to drink, although later there were some minor catastrophes.

Our other specialities of this year included inflatable chairs and animals. The elephant looked like it had smoked some crack. which probably was because it had spotted the other elephant sitting in the inflatable chair.

Visiting the Frank-camp we met Frank, Frank and Frank.

Hmm.. this image seems familiar.

We soon got into flashlight-fight, which resulted in many pics.

'It's loaded and I am not afraid to use it!'

There was a headbanger's karaoke which we attended, the dj played random requests. Unfortunately they'd already played Paranoid when we arrived.

Medium
Large
They had a real air-guitar to get into the mood.

Medium
Large
Yep, the same face again.

Medium
Large
Our charmers, or should I say beastie-boys (I wonder where the brown-skirted girl went ;-)

Medium
Large
Frank, the latest victim of the flash-war. Not the unorthodox color of the t-shirt.

Medium

The karaoke ended all to soon and so we journed back to the camp.

Where the goblins had awakened.

Groupwhale.

And the athmosphere was just too much for some.

Medium

Behemot and the moshing elephant.

Andreas sinks into a meditative koma.

At some point our bikers had arrived, Skoll, Bergie and Johanna. Behemot had an almost maniacal grin on his face, probably due to Skoll's moustach.
