The world’s biggest heavy metal festival celebrates its 25th anniversary!

The author, Stephan Chirazi, depicts its history from the early beginnings, complete with the description of all the bands attending throughout the years and last but not least he tells the stories of all those fans who turn the small rural village of Wacken once a year in August into ‘the people’s republic of Wacken’ with its unique atmosphere!
