Metal Festival Installs Beer Pipeline, Makes Headbanger Dreams Come True

The biggest heavy metal music festival in the world, Wacken Open Air, in Wacken, Germany, is touting improvements to its infrastructure.

At the top of the list: is a beer pipeline which the festival says will pump beer straight to taps at its main stage.

The festival organizers say the more efficient beer delivery system will reduce lines, wait-times and traffic around the taps!

"Until this year, we always had to move dozens of barrels through the infield," reads a statement on the festival's website. "We had to bring in full barrels before and during the shows and afterwards we had to remove the empty ones. This caused a lot of avoidable traffic."

Wacken also added fiber optic cables, power supply and additional speakers as part of improvements prior to this year's festivities, July 31 - August 6.
