The first batch of bands for next year's edition of Wacken Open Air, the thirtieth anniversary of the festivals, have been announced, including power metal supergroup Demons & Wizards, who have stated that it will be their only German festival show. Also announced for the event so far are Sabaton, Parkway Drive, Airbourne, Within Temptation, Rose Tattoo, Krokus, Powerwolf, Dark Funeral, Meshuggah and Avatar. The event is set to take place from August 1st - 3rd.

Demons & Wizards/Iced Earth guitarist Jon Schaffer stated: "It's a good pressure for Hansi and I, it's a good kind. It's the kind we like. We're very excited about it. The thing is we wanted to continue the Demons & Wizards thing, but with Iced Earth and Blind Guardian, we're very busy people, and our schedules... it's just one of those times right now where the holes are lining up in the right way for us to be able to commit to shows next summer. So it's cool."
