Wacken Open Air 2017: Registration period for pole sitting has begun

Pole Sitting

Hear ye, hear ye! As in previous years, the Wacken Foundation gives you the opportunity to take a seat on one of the wooden thrones, which allow you a wide view over the area of the Wacken Open Air at a height of 2,5 meters.

You shall sit tight for six hours, to receive a reward. Every two hours you are granted a 10-minute break, in which you are allowed to leave your place. During the rest of the time, you can listen to the performances on the main stages. Wednesday and Thursday, everyone who did their time, will get a VIP upgrade. The participants of Friday and Saturday will get a 75,00€ voucher for the official Wacken Shop.

The pole sitting will go down from Wednesday, August 2nd until Saturday, August 5th. The “sitting periods” are every day from 10:00-16:00 and 16:30-22:30.

If you want to place your buttocks on one of the poles, you just need to send an e-mail to polesitting@wacken.com, which includes following information:
1. Your full name
2. Your W:O:A-Ticketnumber
3. Day and time, you would prefer to sit on a pole

The Wacken Foundation tries to consider your preferred times as much as possible. Registration opens at June 14th. Since they just have 32 seats to assign, it is “first come, first served”.

For spontaneous people, they also have a pole on which you can sit for 10 minutes for a small donation, to enjoy the view and take pictures. For this is no registration needed.

For each pole a company took a partnership and donates € 10 to the Wacken Foundation for every hour, somebody sat on the pole. The donations are used to support hard rock and heavy metal bands. Across from the pole sitting you find the Wacken Foundation Camp, where you can get information about the Foundation and participate in various activities.

The Foundation wishes every participant lots of fun!
