Wacken Open Air 2014 internet streams and TV shows announced

Yeah, I am pretty sure a lot of you guys outta there are preparing for the biggest event of the year in the world of Heavy Metal: the legendary Wacken Open Air!!!

For all those who cannot make it there I have good news at hand: also 2014 there will be the chance to see some of the shows! The organisers announced at the festival homepage that there will be a webstream available directly at wacken.com as well as on the sites of the media partners 3sat and arte. The streams will have no region-lock so everybody should be able to see the stuff that will be broadcasted. Read the full announcement right here.

Update 2014/08/07: Timetable for the TV broadcasts of the after-festival specials has been changed so I updated them. You can find them at the very end of this article. Think this is mostly interesting for the german visitors of my blog so I kept the german timestamps in there.

Update 2014/08/04: BIG UPDATE! Added all the links to the streaming on-demand service that the TV station ARTE offers for a limited time of 30 days. So if you missed out a show just click on the band name and a new window will open up with the stream. Added also the timetable for the TV broadcasts on german TV at the very end of the article. Have much fun!

Update 2014/08/01: Last night was great! Accept were my favorites, was a good show that simply put a smile on my face. If you missed the stuff out just click on the bandnames in the streaming schedule below. The shows have been added to the online streaming archive of the TV station!

Update 2014/07/31: These bands have been confirmed to be streamed today (Thursday 31th July 2014, all times german time). You can watch it right below in the embedded stream window of ARTE. Thanks to the people out there putting up such fine goodies as the webstream for us, you rock!

Update 2014/07/30: This year it seems to be okay and legal to put the stream also on your own page. I've found this embed code on the ARTE homepage so you'll be able to watch Wacken 2014 also here on my blog. Very cool, so everyone can watch right here. :-)
