Ticket trading and black market
You are still looking for a ticket for W:O:A 2023 or have a spare ticket? That's no problem, hundreds of tickets will change owners until the festival. Because of the personalization (among other things), you should follow our rules and tips so that everything runs smoothly. And simply refrain from making a profit from our tickets at the expense of others.
We act aggressively and successfully against the black market!
A sale at an increased price is a violation of our terms and conditions (https://www.wacken.com/de/rechtliches/agb-2023/). Only the price of 299€ per Fast Ticket and Hard Ticket (plus fees) set by us is a fair and acceptable price for the festival.
Both commercial sellers and visitors who want to finance their own stay at the festival with an expensive, private resale are a thorn in our side. They also prevent other fans from buying tickets at a regular price.
For the W:O:A 2023, therefore, dozens of cases have already been consistently pursued by our team of lawyers at Schütz Rechtsanwälte and our claims have also been enforced in court if necessary. If you, as a seller, want to avoid unattractive post and high costs - including the possible cancellation of your tickets or even an exclusion from ticket purchase - you should simply stick to the original prices when passing them on.
Violations are both fixed prices with an increased price proposal, but also auctions with a starting price of 1€ - a profit intention is easily assumed here, since our tickets are almost always auctioned in auctions at significantly overpriced prices.
Furthermore, the tickets for W:OA 2023 are personalized and a change of names is only possible through us - which we will not do in case of a sale on the black market.
Beware of invalid, fake and blocked tickets!
Tickets traded via ticket portals are often invalid or even faked. The tickets for W:O:A 2023 are also personalized - if the buyer's name does not match the name on the ticket, the buyer will be denied entry.
We also reserve the right to block the tickets sold on the portals in case of violation of our terms and conditions. As a buyer of such a ticket you will then also be denied entry.
Unauthorized platforms include the following:
- eBay Kleinanzeigen
- several Facebook pages and Instagram accounts
You bought a ticket on such a platform? Send us an email to email@example.com with all the information you have, such as buyer details, ticket number and proof of purchase, to rule out any problems.
This is how it works: Selling within our platform!
Whether you are looking for a ticket or want to sell one - better use our official ticket swap!
When buying tickets, it is often worth taking a look at our official travel partners - some of them still have tickets in their contingent.
