In Focus: One Tiny Village - 100,000 Rock Fans

Sunday July 25 at 9:30am on Stratos TV

Wacken is small village in the northern German state of Schleswig-Holstein. The rural lives of its 2,000 residents are characterised by peace and tranquility throughout the year. Except, that is, in mid-July, when the surrounding fields become the stage for the world’s biggest heavy metal music festival – Wacken Open Air. In 2009, the festival is celebrating its 20th anniversary. A village and the rockers – who’s stressed and who’s having fun?
