Some questions I've been pondering that I couldn't find answers for by searching? 1) How late can one leave it before booking tickets? When did they sell out last year? 2) How much beer/food do they let you bring onto site if you buy some from the local wacken supermarket? 3) What else is there to do when you're not in the crowd listening to the band? Are people having fun and drinking midday or do people usually wait until evening? 4) If arriving the night before, what's a recommended arrival time? 5) Can you hear the music from outside the crowd/audience area (as in campsite, drinking area etc.) 6) How early does the music tend to start? 7) What goes on of a night? Are people up all night drinking (as in, 2am onwards)? Sometimes I have trouble sleeping, would be good to know if there are still people up to drink with at all times. 8) What are the toilets like? Are they far walk from the drinking area(s) and do you normally have to queue? I say this because I have the most retarded bladder when I drink and usually have to piss every 20 minutes if not more. 9) Do you tend to hang about/meet new people there, or do you usually just hang with the group you came with? My first festival, so... 10) What's the drinking age in Germany? Will be bringing my younger brother who would have just turned 18 Thanks for your time, sorry if this stuff's been answered elsewhere.
