The Wacken Foundation is a non-profit foundation which dedicates itself to the support of hard rock and metal music. Basically every artist and every band from the metal scene can be supported by the Wacken Foundation.
The name Wacken Foundation might be a bit misleading, but we, the organisers of the W:O:A do not receive a single cent of the donations. The entire assets of the foundation are solely used to support artists from the metal scene.
All information regarding the Wacken Foundation is available at wacken-foundation.com.
