Wacken Open Air founder: "We're surviving. Every year is a challenge"


Thomas Jensen, founder of Germany's Wacken Open Air festival recently talked with Billboard, you can read some excerpts below.


This year's edition of Wacken Open Air sold out within 12 hours and tickets to the 2016 event are already long gone, Jensen says that the money will be used "to pay last year's debt."

Jensen said: "We're surviving. Every year is a challenge and this one will be hard, I don't think we'll lose money, but the profit will be eaten. But we have to get the best experience for the fan. If we're not doing that, we're not successful. It's as simple as that."
