    HA! I discovered the same thing last night, I wonder if you were doing the same thing as me, scouring the internet for something, ANYTHING that may give a clue to the rest of the lineup, no such luck. Man, these guys could teach the CIA a few things about secrecy... OH well, the wait continues :party:

    Can you imagine all the youtube videos of the cruise that will show up around Jan 29, 2011!

    Well of the fans and partying and Cozumel I can imagine you tube videos....drunk Finntroll stumbling over steps on the ship, etc. but video taping performances is strickly forbidden and violators will be dealt with by security.

    From the creator of the cruise and "Our Skipper"

    The use of Pocket cameras / Cell phone cameras is ok.

    For the shows, the use of professional photo cameras with exchangeable objectives as well as audio or video recording is not permitted unless officially authorized and a photo/press pass has been issued to that person.

    No doubt.

    Don't think anybody would try and take any unauthorized video if that was the case though..

    It's strange. A couple of years ago, we all went to shows to actually watch the show. Now you see a bunch of cameras/cell phones in the air recording the show. What, to watch it later? I'd rather experience it while actually there rather than becoming an amateur cinematographer and trying to get the perfect shot!

    I like getting pictures of some shows, it's fun to re-live and only takes seconds, plus some stage setups are just wicked. I don't spend forever trying to set up a 'perfect shot' though haha.
    I agree about videoing though.. It's impossible to get decent sound on a pocket camera anyways.

    I actually really enjoy getting pictures of the crowd sometimes; either as a reminder of how many people were there or because someone is doing something awesome/stupid :P

    I just purchased a new Canon EOS Rebel Xi SLR digital camera w/2 lenses and it should arrive any day from B+H, I wonder if I could get a photo pass. I would be scared to bring it on the cruise actually unless there were photo pits.

    Can only second what viathyn posted. Canon makes damn good cameras. I have one too.
    I was thinking about asking for a photo pass as well but only briefly. Sometimes I enjoy taking photos (or conducting interviews, taking notes for live reviews etc. for that matter). But sometimes, especially when there are bands I really want to see, it annoys me because I can't really enjoy the show as I consider myself "on the job". So I decided for myself that I want to enjoy the cruise as a mere fan without having to take care of equipment or concentrating on taking good pics.

    Canon is incredible. I have just a little Canon Elph that I got for a gift. I actually got some pretty decent videos of my friend's band on it. The biggest thing that blew me away was the sound quality for such a tiny little mic. Pretty impressive stuff.

    That is soooo true. At bigger shows it looks like when people were holding their lighters up... or maybe that's the idea?

    I plan on buying a video camera for the trip, but it always only going to be for when I'm roaming around the ship or in Cozumel.
    But if Cellphone video cams are allowed, I might bring my iPod and take some shitty video recordings of a few songs.
    Either way, there should be plenty to film outside of the actual shows for those of you who are bringing your video cams.

    This years line up didnt seem so awesome, so I chose not to go.
    I'm just waiting for a sick line up of bands to be announced one of these years and I'm in.
    I'd also like to check out Metalcamp and Graspop some time in the future.

    Ah, even if the line up is just ok, Wacken is still an experience, Europe is an experience, and why not have a nice vacation?

    I am not one to lay about on the beach. I would rather travel and see some shit.

    After Wacken I dashed up into Norway and Sweden. It was great.

    Not the first to express the same opinion. I've never been and haven't studied the current or past line ups extensively but from the posts I've read here, it sounds like the festival in general has deteriorated from what it was, both in terms of lineups and festival conditions. Having said that, I'd still go if I had the cash just because it's sort of a legendary event that I've yet to experience :headbanger:
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    My wife and I are going to Wacken for the first time this year. We are very excited and after the festival will be spending a few days in Berlin and Hamburg. We've always wanted to go and decided to just go for it this year. Although there are plenty of bands we are not interested in there are still enough to get us excited, Slayer-Immortal-Ishan-Candlemass-Stratovarious-Grave Digger-Fear Factory-Iron Maiden-Motley Crue-Evile-Cannibal Corpse..etc etc. Plus A friend of mine is in one of the bands playing this year and he got me all access backstage passes...:)

    :shred: :shred: :shred:

    Compared to the many other major festivals around, Wacken fucking rocks boys and girls!!!

    Of course no event of that size is without problems, but compared to others, well what can I say, Wacken is the Metal Mecca not for no reason.

    To be fully honest they had some problems a few years back when the festival grew at an unbelievable pace, but since they capped the capacity a few years ago it improved a lot.

    I attended Wacken in 2008 when Avantasia + Iron Maiden headlined, and I can say from experience that it is a fucking blast. Even if you're not into a lot of the bands on the billing there's still so much going on. I booked my tickets and finalized my trip when there was only 5 bands and by the end of it, I was a little diappointed with the final lineup. However, I can safely say that I was never bored at any moment while I was there. Some of the bands I didn't care for before the festival turned out to be great! The shopping areas alone would eat up your whole weekend if you went through everything.

    I also attended Bloostock in the UK that same year, I think it was roughly 10,000 people. The smaller atmosphere was definitely cool and the lineup was more catered to my tastes (excluding the headliners) and everyone spoke English which was a bonus. However, I found there to be much less to do in general at that fest and it wasn't organized as well. For it's size and population, Wacken is run like a machine!

    Next time I head over for festivals, I think I'll check out some of the smaller, more specific events. Keep it True, Headbangers, Progpower, Up the Hammers, etc etc are my absolute cup of tea. I definitely want to attend Wacken again and one festival I've always wanted to visit is METALCAMP SLOVENIA!

    I never noticed that, because I am usually too fucked up to care. I do not like it when its hot and everyone is drunk and crowded in. At least on the cruise you can stumble to a clean bathroom and not have 70,000 metalheads drunk in a cow pasture

    I agree that one of the appealing things about 70,000 tons is that if you need a break you can head back to your room for a nap or to use the bathroom.

    a nap?????????? I am not napping in my room. I will nap in the very upper deck with beer and bloody marys in a lounge chair. I did not plan to go to this and sit around inside or whatever. I will be poolside and at the indoor shows and then beachcoming and shopping in Cozumel and drinking. Drinking Mas Tequila is my plan.
