From the HEADBANGERS OPEN AIR Facebook Page:
Not without reasons, the Headbangers Open Air is called “the biggest garden party of the world“. It takes place in Brande-Hörnerkirchen, near Elmshorn (40 km away from Hamburg). The venue is the yard of a burnt down and restored farm in the middle of nowhere, where the organizer opens his garden every year again for the (at least in the spirit) long-haired metal-hordes. The band choice at the HOA is diversified – from the legends of the 80s and 90s to local heroes, insider tips, underground bands and newcomers, who will also get their chance to play here. The only thing missing is expensive “headliners”, to keep the entrance fee as low as possible.
The stage is raised in the inner yard and the surrounding fields serve as parking lots and campgrounds. Beer and BBQ-shacks, all for reasonable prices, are provided, as well as a metal market.
