    hey.

    some people, like us, are coming to wacken with a bunch of luggage, clothes, and all that shit, and we don't feel safe about leaving everything we have in a tent while we are at the festival. is there any special place where we can safely stow our luggage? otherwise we will have to leave them like halfway across the country. this is a burning issue and we are all like 'goddammit' and stuff. what should we do?

    i don't remember seeing anything...and i just checked the program guide from last year and it doesn't mention anything.
    if you don't have a car to leave things in, i think you're out of luck.

    check the Q&A forum though....someone asked this earlier and maybe the organizeras will have an answer.

    Larger train stations have lockers and/or left luggage facilities at a cost

    otherwise get a Pacsafe backpack security netting which protects your backpack from 'handy' people. They also make them to fit suitcases and sports bags now.

    I believe Wacken is safer than when travelling :) a locker in the tent was enough for me last year (no one stole my vinyl records or anything)

    I think Holger said they are working on it. I think there will be lockers this year.

    How about pocket thieves in Wacken? Are they good at?

    I have never heard of anyone I know having money stolen, and there is many of us who travel and obviously split up to go to metal market, food stalls etc

    You can never be too careful though, keep your money in different places just incase someone does take the chance of stealing from you, however unlikely it may be. I do understand your concerns.

    Perhaps it would be worthwhile leaving some items of clothing and money in the lockers at Itzehoe train station, which is where you can get the shuttle bus to Wacken from.

    Hope this helps all!

    darkness it shall be......

    Yes, we are coming by cars. But also a car can never be 100% safe place to store your things. Well, i ask these things because i've never been to any big festivals in Western Europe. I've been to Switzerland once and that's it. I just don't know how things are. But i hope, there won't be any problems :)

    Well I don't know about any pocket thieves... anyway what are they supposed to steal ..beer cans?cigarettes?..
    Personally I think the car is a safe place.. never heard that anybody broke into a car...
    I think the bigger problem is loosing something...
    Don't worry that much ...
    Wacken isn't a big city like Frankfurt or Hamburg and mostly just Metalheads show up to have a party so basically nothing to worry about except the usuall everyday precautions you take at home (like locking the car up before you leave)

    yeah, Suwarin is right :)
    I´ve been 5 times to Wacken and always considered my car as safe enough :) I´ve never noticed some attempts to steal things out of anybodys car...
    Put the valuable things in the glove locker, lock that and it should be really safe enough.

    I accidentally left my car unlocked for almost two days last year... with the camera, all our CDs, money, and just everything in there... and nobody even touched my car :)
