Germans building pipeline for beer

Recommended Posts

The Caspian Hare

Construction is underway to build a pipeline that will stretch over 4 miles long and quench the thirst of over 75,000 of those who are expected to attend the Wacken Open Air festival which takes place in August.

Festival goers have consumed about 100,000 gallons of beer in past years, giving festival coordinators a reason to supply the drink in a way that has never been seen before.

Village of Wacken during W:O:A

The citizens of Wacken (~1,800 in number) can attend for free, which turns W:O:A into a kind of public holiday due because the village joins in the fun. Everywhere, private biergartens are set up and bands play out on the street. The friendly north-Germans offer a warm welcome to those associated with "the scary looking, devil worshipers", whose aggression—Headbanging, Wall of death, or screaming—is just for during the concert, the festival being considered for the most part quite peaceful and safe. Nearly every citizen offers support, from farmers offering shelter in their barns and transportation to the venue, to kids earning pocket money by helping to transport beer and food, to homeowners offering metalheads the use of toilet facilities. Such support is good business as well, as about an additional €20,000,000 are spent in the Wacken area every year by festival visitors. The amazing villagers are one reason why W:O:A sells out immediately. During the festival, the village itself becomes a sightseeing attraction for people who have no tickets nor love of metal and hard rock at all, but who just enjoy watching metalheads from the sidelines. The award-winning documentary Full Metal Village by Korean Sung-Hyung Cho deals with the relations between villagers and the festival goers; the film making the village internationally known beyond the music scene
