wacken open

Really pleased to see that the biggest metal festival in the world, Wacken Open Air, has already got such a female-inclusive line up for next year. Headliners include Epica, Arch Enemy, Doro and Nightwish! Since metal and metal festivals are often still such boy’s clubs, it’s great to see that four headlining acts include women -and in such different bands too. How often does that happen, even in this day and age?
