WOA-Metal_Battle_IrelandFollowing a late change to what was intended to be a year off for the Wacken Metal Battle Ireland, the competition returns to Ireland this June to find a last minute addition to this year’s Wacken Open Air line-up. Yes, you read that right, one band from Ireland has the chance to join the line-up for the biggest metal festival in the world, Wacken 2016 and play alongside some of the biggest names in metal including Iron Maiden, Bullet for My Valentine, Whitesnake/David Coverdale, Blind Guardian, Testament, Ministry, Triptykon (Official), Immolation, Arch Enemy, Clutch, DevilDriver, Marduk Official, Twisted Sister, Ihsahn -Official-, Therion and of course… Steel Panther!

But if you want in, you need to get your application to us by MIDNIGHT on FRIDAY 27th MAY. AND… your band needs to be able to play in the FINAL in Dublin on SATURDAY 18TH JUNE 2016. Importantly, should your band win, you will need to be in Germany from Tuesday 2nd to Sunday 7th August 2016.
