Now you can experience the sold out Wacken Open Air Festival from the comfort of your living room. Director Sam Dunn explains…

‘Our goal with Welcome To Wacken was to bring viewers closer than ever to that feeling of being at Wacken. To do this, we did something quite simple: we put the cameras up and let them roll.  With the advantage of a full 360 perspective, shooting in VR offered us the opportunity to surround the viewer with the sights and sounds of Wacken.  Our goal was to put viewers in the beer gardens, party tents, wrestling rings and mosh pits that make the world’s biggest metal festival so unique.’

A story in five parts as told by different fans from around the world, the 30-minute film climaxes with a live performance from ARCH ENEMY that puts viewers on stage with the band. It will be available on most major VR platforms later this month.
