NDR Livestream and Giga Panorama

Due to our cooperation with NDR there is a live stream directly from the festival for free this year. For the first time ever there is also a giga panorama where you can immortalize yourself. How that works you will find out now:


W:O:A live streams on NDR.DE

If you belong to those who could not get hold of a ticket this year we have a good message for you: There will be a live stream arranged by NDR.DE. So you can watch the performance of the most important bands via internet. You can find all information about this topic on www.ndr.de/wacken.


Information (source: NDR.DE):

On the 4th and the 5th of August there will be a live stream of the most important bands performing on the two main stages broadcasted on NDR.De. On the 6th of August NDR.DE will only broadcast from the so called Black Stage. The live streams will be supplemented by background videos about the festival, interviews with the metal stars and extracts of the concerts which will be available as video-on-demand. Our Wacken reporter will catch the atmosphere on the crazy metal party via a daily video coverage.


NDR and the W:O:A Giga-Panorama

Everyone who already has been standing in the first row during a concert of his/ her favorite band before knows it: After the show the first photos of the crowd are shown and you promptly start searching for yourself! Unfortunately the photos are often too small and blurred so that you cannot identify much in the crowd. The NDR attends to this problem now – namely with the giga panorama! During the scene-changing intermission between Bülent Cheylan and Frei.Wild the panorama which catches the crowd in a large scale format is constructed and offers you the possibility to tag yourself and to share on Facebook or Studivz.


Information (source: NDR.DE)

The giga panorama is a very large photo with an extremely high resolution. It is taken from one of the main stages – everybody who is standing in front of this stage not cowering is likely to be seen on the photo. Then the picture can be found on the website of the NDR. When they have found themselves on the photo the visitors of the festival can tag themselves and link their Facebook or Studivz account.
