Wacken Open Air has been on my festival bucket list for a long time, and 2020 was going to be the year I finally ticked it off. However, like everything during this ill-fated year, the festival had to be put on pause on account of COVID-19. Like many music festivals across the globe, Wacken Open Air organisers were keen to ensure that revellers were still able to get a taste of a festival this summer, embarking on a path which resulted in one of the largest streamed festival events of the year.
