Low temperatures and snow
Please be aware that the Wacken Winter Nights are set in February that's why it could become very cold and there is a risk for heavy snowfall. Following we have some advice for you to withstand the weather unscathed:
o It is highly recommended to use frostproof camping equipment.
o Use winter proof bedrolls, well shielded camping mats (the thicker the better) and warm clothes, pillows and additionally downy feather or fleece blankets and possibly a rescue blanket
o Before you pitch your tent, de-ice the area where you want to build it up (This way you avoid additionally cold from below).
o Take care of your clothes to keep them warm and dry all the time.
o Hot-water bags can be very useful.

We wish you a relaxed and secure journey without any breakdowns. Remember: On Thursday evening we will start with a Warm Up Party at the Landgasthof zum Wackinger at 10.00PM with Forgotten North!

We are looking forward to welcome you all here!
