Wacken Foundation – branded Hobby Vantana will be displayed at the Wacken Foundation Camp.
Normally they work with wood and other materials, which play an important role when it comes to the production of caravans and camper vans. They learn how to establish a connection between different components.
This time, the wood technicians of the hobby-training workshop switched from drill, saw and file to a spray can, in order to give their Hobby Vantana a new and extraordinary look. The panel van will be presented in a striking Wacken-design and can be admired at the Wacken Open Air between 4th and 8th August, 2016 (at the Wacken Foundation Camp).
In collaboration with the renowned graffiti-artist Réne Turrek, who gave tips and tricks, the trainees shaped the brand new Vantana-exterior design in the hobby-training workshop for wood technicians. But also the interior design is in no way inferior to the exterior design. The “Saloon” in the rear is equipped with a super-sound-system, a television and self-made E-guitar by the trainees – a room where one can really relax and hang out. With the interior construction the trainees of the hobby-training workshop gave proof of their skills in challenging joineries. After the presence at the Wacken Open Air there will be even more activities with the Vantana. Then, the Vantana will go on tour for being used as info-van for promotion of wood technicians. It stops at schools, fairs and other events.
Few weeks after the festival there will be an eBay-auction of another caravan designed by Réne Turrek in an Heavy-Metal-look of the hobby-model-range De Luxe Edition. The proceeds of the auction will go to the Wacken Foundation in order to support young bands and artists in the Heavy-Metal-scene. We will provide you with more information as soon as the auction begins.
Harry Metal visited the company Hobby a while ago to inspect the reworking of the Vantana (video in German):
