There will be shows streamed from all kinds of places: from special underground stages, spectacular drive-in cinema shows to venues all over the world.
DORO is already looking forward to the event: “W:O:A is obviously one of my absolute favorite festivals. It’s extremely sad that it cannot take place this year for the first time. There is nothing more awesome than standing on one of the big Wacken stages and rocking out with the 75.000 metalheads in front of it.“, the metal queen comments. “But luckily, Wacken World Wide gives artists and fans a great chance to celebrate metal together this weekend. At our show, we will of course play our Wacken Hymn ‘We Are The Metalheads’ and really give it full power, including fireworks on stage. I’m looking forward to it! All We Are! Für Immer!”
