Thousands of metalheads will flock to the Wacken Open Air festival on August 3-5, where 150 bands will take the stage and an abundance of metal music love also carries over into beer, so much so that festival organizers are installing a sophisticated beer pipeline to make sure the taps are always running.
When the world’s largest metal music festival opens, trucks driving in and out to restock the keg supply will be a thing of the past. A 4-mile pipeline will run under the festival grounds and connect directly to the beer tapss. There should be no worries of slowdowns either as the pipeline is expected to provide the pressure to fill six beers in only 6 seconds.
The Wacken Open Air Festival welcomes in around 75,000 metal fans who consume on average an impressive 5.1 liters of beer per person over the three-day event.
