In an interview with Metalitalia.com, ICS Festival Service GmbH managing director Thomas Jensen (Wacken Open Air organizers) reveals that the festival is in negotiations with MANOWAR to headline the 2009 edition of the festival.

Says Thomas Jensen: "For 2009 we are discussing with Manowar... my friend Joey is really crazy but I like him. [laughs] SAXON should play as well. We're in contact with METALLICA too, and we'll meet with John Jackson at the end of March to plan out their next Waken appearance, that probably will be in 2010".

Manowar for headlining, i thought Machine Head were headlining? o.O Or they only released 1 headlining band so far for 2009?

And Metallica at Wacken wouldn't be too bad...

I don't care about 2010, how about some updates for 2009? We're four months out and they've only announced 32 bands - there's at least 30 or 40 to go.

Manowar and Saxon, I thought, were almost inevitable (it IS the 20th anniversary and Germans love both bands far too much). I want Gojira.
