Wacken Open Air 2022 confirms Till Linderman, Danko Jones, Orden Ogan and more!

Today the next round of bands for W:O:A 2022 are here, once again the line-up grows by several exciting names! Organisers are especially happy to announce that TILL LINDEMANN (due to scheduling reasons on one of the regular days instead of Wacken Wednesday) will be part of the Wacken line-up after all.

Don’t forget: The exchange for W:O:A 2022 starts at the beginning of July! If you have a valid ticket for W:O:A 2021, you will receive an email for this purpose, with which you can log into our new ticket centre.

Wacken is very happy that TILL LINDEMANN, probably one of the most influential German artists of today, will celebrate his Wacken debut. The fact that he is performing this gig in addition to the Rammstein tour shows how important this facet of his work is to him.

They were one of the first German heavy metal bands, now they are a legend: Congratulations to GRAVE DIGGER’S 40th anniversary! And what better way to celebrate than with a special show on the Holy Ground? The Clans of Wacken will be marching!

When DANKO JONES play, the party is on. With their new – and programmatically titled – album “Power Trio” under their belt, this hard rock gang will have you sweating in 2022, rest assured!

Their powerful melodic metal has long since made it into the charts, so after 2010 and 2016, ORDEN OGAN were once again due for a visit to the Holy Ground. We are looking forward to a rousing show!

Wacken also welcomes TARJA, an absolute Wacken veteran, to the line-up. Whether with her old band Nightwish or as a solo artist – the Finn always knows how to captivate her audience.

Festival organsiers are also happy to confirm the following international metal legends: US metallers CIRITH UNGOL will celebrate their Wacken debut with a very special “50th Anniversary Show”, and authentic NWOBHM flair comes from ANGEL WITCH. VOMITORY will serve you finest Swedish Death Metal and it will get really occult with the Italians DEATH SS.

As usual, W:O:A stands for more than “just” heavy metal. That’s why they are happy to welcome NEW MODEL ARMY for the second time after 2015, while Misfits guitarist DOYLE will be joining the line up for the first time. LUCIFER with singer Johanna Sadonis and Hellacopters frontman Nicke Andersson on drums will celebrate 70s heavy rock with you.

Two hidden gems complete today’s announcement: NYTT LAND with atmospheric sounds from Siberia and the Indonesian metallers from VOICE OF BACEPROT.
