There’s going to be more heavy metal than usual at this year’s instalment of Wacken Open Air, with the German festival’s headbangers-in-chief reportedly constructing a motherfucking BEER PIPELINE at their 2017 gathering.
Yes, a beer pipeline. A pipeline that will deliver a thirst-crushing 400,000 litres of sweet, sweet beer direct to the mouths of thousands of thirsty metalheads at this year’s event.
Cop a squiz:
According to a report from Metal Insider, the reasons for the installation of this majestic aqueduct are both practical and environmental.
The state-of-the-art pipeline will allow for six beers to be poured every second from one nifty, centralised system, instead of having to lug in keg after keg and worry about re-tapping them constantly. Science FTW!
No word on what brand of brews they’ll be pumping through its monstrous veins, but we suspect it’ll most likely be German in origin.
Wacken 2017 is set to go down across the weekend of August 3rd – 5th, and your beer tunnel will come with a hearty side of heavy metal with bands like Amon Amarth, Kreator and Lacuna Coil already being announced on the 2017 lineup so far.
