Help Wacken Ticketcenter

As we want to tie the hard ticket to the digital world, the Wacken Ticketcenter is a logical step. With this we offer you a convenient way to manage tickets for events from the Wacken universe easily and comfortably.

You can pass on tickets or have them transferred to other names.

Active tickets are valid tickets for upcoming events. Various options are available for these, such as sharing or re-personalisation.

Here you will find digital tickets from your past events. You can also pass these on afterwards if, for example, one of your friends is still missing his ticket from a certain year.

The Wacken tickets that you have bought since 2020 are displayed here. This means: tickets for the Wacken Open Air and/or Wacken Wednesday from last year as well as (if you decide to exchange them) the corresponding tickets for 2022.

It means that you can give your ticket to someone else. For example, many of you order tickets directly for your friends. You can now pass them on to your friends individually, for example when you have received the money for the order. With just a few clicks, the ticket then changes hands. Let's stay with this example:

  • You want to give a ticket for W:O:A 2021 to your friend Max Mustermann.
  • To do this, click on the button "Ticket transfer" directly on the ticket.
  • In the next step, you enter Max's email address and click on "Start ticket transfer".
  • Max will then receive an email from our ticket centre with a link. When he clicks on this link, he can accept the ticket, and only then is the process complete. Max must then change the name of the ticket he received to his own name.
  • You can cancel this process at any time.

When you place your order, you must always enter the name of the owner for each ticket. This name will then be checked against an identification document at the entrance. If you need to make changes here (e.g. because of a name change or because someone else is to use this ticket) you can do so here. We charge a fee of 10 euros for processing. Here is an example:

You have ordered tickets in your name Max Mustermann, but due to marriage you have taken on the name Musterfrau and want to change this on your ticket.

  • To do this, click on the "Re-personalise" button directly at the ticket.
  • In the next step, enter the "new" name and click on "Start repersonalisation".
  • After that, you are taken directly to the payment page to pay the fee.
  • Once the fee has been paid, your ticket will be automatically repersonalised.
