With an incredible line up boasting Skindred, Therapy? and Black Spiders it's no wonder the Jägermeister Music Tour 2012 is selling out fast. So fast in fact, that due to overwhelming demand, the Glasgow Show on April 11th has been upgraded from the O2 ABC to 02 Academy, and the Bristol show is now totally sold out.

As if the incredible line up on offer isn't enough, Jägermeister are treating ticket holders - who have only had to pay £5 - to an awesome local support at each show.

Opening at the 02 Academy in Leeds on 10th April are experi-mentalists Hawk Eyes, who say: "We are extremely happy to be joining the Jäger tour in our home town. Having listened to these bands in our youth, we never thought that one day we would be sharing a stage with them. It's an honour to open up what promises to be a sterling night."

In Newcastle, York Metallers Glamour Of The Kill look forward to kicking off proceedings on the 12th April: "We are really excited to be joining up with the bands in Newcastle on this years Jägermeister tour! The line up is mind blowing and Skindred never fail to impress with their live show.

"We will be in the studio writing our second album which is sounding huge. We can't wait to unleash these new songs to you guys, so lets raise those glasses high and party hard Newcastle!"

On Friday 13th April, Londoners The Defiled escape from the studio to bring their industrialised Metal to Brixton to warm up the 5000 strong crowd. Keyboard player The AvD says: "We have been in the studio for the past month or two concentrating on writing and demoing tracks for our new album, so when we got the call to open up the Brixton date of our beloved Jägermeister tour, we could not say yes fast enough!

"I got to see Therapy? at Sonisphere 2010 and they absolutely killed it, as for Skindred... They are immaculate live every time! We are definitely looking forward to hanging out all night and making a proper night of it because right after that... it's back to the isolation of our dark studio!"

In Bristol, Turbowolf start the last day of the party, with vocalist/synth player Chris Georiadis warning: "This gig is gonna be awesome! We can't wait to make a huge amount of noise and tear the place down with some furious psychedelic punk grooves. Let's do this!"

A support for the upgraded Glasgow show will be announced soon.

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.


Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.

Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.


MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.


Wacken 2018 takes place from 2nd to 4th August 20218 and as with Wacken Winter Nights, if you have never experienced all it has to offer, then you owe it to yourself to remedy that.

Already announced for Wacken 2018 are Judas Priest, Nightwish, Running Wild (exclusive), Arch Enemy, Dirkschneider, Doro (Special Anniversary Show), In Extremo, Sepultura, Amorphis, Amaranthe, Firewind, W.A.R., Belphegor, Mantar, Knorkator, Deserted Fear, Watain, Night Demon, Epica, Knorkator, Belphegor, Firewind, Deserted Fear and many more and we'll have more Wacken 2018 announcements during December.

As well as being the greatest Heavy Metal festival in the world, it is without a doubt the Mecca of Metal and the one thing that every single person who loves our music should have on their bucket list.

For 2018, MetalTalk have joined forces with Wacken-Open-Air to help you get to Wacken easily and inexpensively and you can peruse the ticket and travel options right here.
