QUEENSRŸCHE first burst onto the music scene in 1982 with the release of their self-titled 4 song EP 'Queensrÿche'. They very quickly gained international recognition and performed to sold out audiences around the world. With the follow up first full-length album 'The Warning' in 1984, and the ground breaking 1986 release of 'Rage For Order', QUEENSRŸCHE continued to prove their worldwide dominance as one of the most respected and creative bands of the 80's.

In 1988 the band turned out yet another monumental album 'Operation: Mindcrime', which would go on to become one of the TOP 10 best-selling concepts records of all time, and set the stage for continued sold out performances around the world. With the release of the critically acclaimed and commercially successful 'Empire' in 1991, the band earned multiple Grammy Award nominations and won the MTV 'viewers choice' award for the #1 chart topping hit 'Silent Lucidity'. During the next ten years, the band continued to release albums and tour the world to sold-out audiences. QUEENSRŸCHE has sold over 30 million albums worldwide and have continued to break new ground and push their creative process.



WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

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

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.
