    :D
    I haven't decided if I'm going this year to WACKEN 2010, but this has to be one of the best lineups I have seen in many years, especially seeing Maiden, Slayer, Crue on stage.

    If I do go, it will be my first so I'm curious if anyone from Canada or States are going this year or have gone in previous years that can give me any advice.

    Thanks, Ray

    Not sure yet if I can go, but I'm from the US and went last year. Feel free to ask questions [but see the stickies first, that'll answer a bunch]. :]

    I'm from the USA as well.

    There are a fair number of us and, like xforeverxmetalx I too went last year and also can answer any questions.

    I am going this year as far as I know.

    I am from America as well, and this will be my first! My tix should be in the mail soon within a few weeks. I've been banging my head (not to music) but trying to work out planning the trip...lol Thanks to Deathbringer and Morphinechild, for keeping my sanity, and giving me lots of pointers and advice...(ie "don't pack too much clothes, and bring lots of beer money!) haha
    :p

    Im not going this year (unless i change my mind last minute) but Id go to see Tiamat. I hope they will show up at HOA which ill most likely be at this year.

    Anyhow, Whoever is going for the first time, i strongly warn you against driving from Wacken, (last year) it took me 10 hours to get to hamburg the day that wacken ended. from the fest to the city which should be no more than 3 hours tops. Incase youre thinking of renting a car, dont.

    just the idea of the possibility of New Jersey expanding is a scary thought. i think the ocean should get alittle bigger to drown out this shithole of a state. :D:p

    I'm NOT from the US, but if you leave before 7 - 8am on Sunday (after Wacken), you can leave at ease through the A23 (the freeway to Hamburg).

    Not much later no, almost 90% has to go to that direction and the Elbe tunnel is a bottle neck.

    Why not expand it briefly, then remove it?

    And also, just take the train/shuttle they provide. That's what I did. Even if I was waiting for Jesse and Carmine for... ugh :o let's just say if it wasn't for the announcer guy's bad English providing humor I would have probably died.

    now ya tell me!? :p

    I woke up at around 1 pm the day it ended (everyone around me was gone) and by the time i packed up and we found our car ( it was parked by someones house somewhere outside the grounds) it had to be around 3 or 4. most people seemed to have been gone by then but that wasnt the case once we hit the highway. it was a nightmare. and thats coming from someone who is more than used to sitting in traffic every day.
    I only drove cause a friend drove out there from Hungary to meet me so it was a great luxury to have a car (or so i thought). but that same car got me all the way to Budapest in the end AND was a place to sleep a few nights on the road. i think i should have just waited til night to have left.
    This summer ill be on my own and have to find out all the train stations, etc..

    that would still be a long ass drive to Germany from here ! or train ride.

    There's a reason why we left early :p

    And, why not just remove the Atlantic, and bring Germany closer via rope?
