Headbangers's Open Air is called "the biggest garden party of the world". It takes place in Brande-Hörnerkirchen, (40 km 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 long-haired metal-hordes. The band choice is mainly classic metal - from the legends of the 80s and 90s, to local heroes, underground bands and newcomers, who will also get their chance to play here. 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..
