Help Wacken Ticketcenter

Since we want to link the hard ticket with the digital world, the Wacken Ticketcenter is a logical step. Hereby we offer you a convenient way to manage tickets for events from the Wacken cosmos comfortably and easily.

.

You can pass on tickets, have them transferred to other names or even post them on the ticket exchange.

Active tickets are valid tickets for upcoming events. Various options are available for these, such as passing them on, placing them in the ticket exchange or repersonalizing them.

Under this button 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 particular year.

Here you will see the Wacken tickets you have bought since 2020. That 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.

.

  • To do this, you must first call up the registration for the Wacken.ID via this page: Wacken Ticketcenter - Registration.
  • In the form that opens, enter your data and the e-mail address you used to place your order, as well as a password. It is important that you use the e-mail address that was used for the order at Metaltix. The tickets are automatically assigned to this address.
  • The password should contain at least 6 characters. One capital letter and one number.
  • Write down the password right now! You will need it for the future!
  • After sending the registration of the Wacken.ID you will receive an e-mail from the ticket center to verify your mail address.
  • In this verification e-mail you will find a link which is only activated for a short time. Therefore, do the verification immediately! If the link has expired, you can request a new one via the "Forgot password function".
  • After the verification you will get to the Wacken Ticketcenter and can now exchange your W:O:A tickets to 2022 or request a refund.

The 2-factor authentication is a security query to the Wacken.ID account with which you gain access to the Wacken Ticketcenter.

  • This authentication was actively selected by the account holder via the profile/user account in the Wacken Ticketcenter
  • .
  • By downloading the authentication app and scanning the QR code, 2-factor authentication is enabled
  • .
  • It can only be deactivated again by the account holder via the user account
  • .
  • You need the device running the Authenticator app to sign in
  • .
  • The Authenticator displays a security code that must be entered when logging in to the ticket center
  • .

If this device is no longer available, please write to.

.

To log in, please visit the Wacken Ticketcenter page.

  • With the button "Log In" you enter your email address stored for the order and the password assigned for registration.
  • .
  • If you no longer have your password, you can request an e-mail to reset your password by clicking on the "Forgotten password" button. This e-mail will be sent to you immediately by Wacken.ID.
  • Enter a new password and remember the capital letter and number.
  • After that you can restart the process to log in and should now arrive at the ticket center.

You can log into the Wacken Ticketcenter at any time and from any laptop, computer or cell phone with your Wacken.ID.

There are 2 accounts in the Wacken Ticketcenter and all tickets should be listed and managed in one account.

  • First log into the account from which you want to forward the included tickets to the other account.
  • .
  • Using the "Ticket forwarding" button below each ticket, you now enter the mail address to the other account
  • .
  • With this input and submitting, the process to "ticket forward" your tickets will be started.
  • .
  • An email from the ticket center will inform you about the transfer of the tickets.
  • The process of registration you do not need here, but log in directly with password and email address to this account.
  • To be able to accept the forwarded tickets, look for the "Processes" button in the menu bar. Your forwarded tickets are stored there and only need to be accepted.

You have a new mail address, but still have access to the old one?

  • Log into the Wacken Ticketcenter with your old email address and password.
  • After you have arrived at the Wacken Ticketcenter, you can click on your user account in the menu bar. The menu bar shows a small circle with the first letter of your first name.
  • Click there on "Edit profile"
  • Here you can enter and save a new email address.
  • You will then receive an email to confirm your new address.

You have a new mail address, but no access to the old mail address and your password is also no longer available?

Please send us a short mail.

By passing on your ticket, you can pass it on 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. Here's an example:

  • To forward a W:O:A ticket to a friend, you need the email address of your friend and enter it via the button "Ticket Forwarding".
  • Your friend will receive a mail from the Wacken Ticketcenter with a note of the forwarding and a link to the registration page to the Ticketcenter. If the user already has a Wacken.ID, he can use it to log in to the ticket center. If he does not have a Wacken.ID yet, he has to register again.
  • In the ticket center, the forwarded W:O:A ticket is then located under "Operations" and must be accepted there.
  • Re-personalization before this process is not mandatory. This can be done by the new ticket holder after forwarding.

The W:O:A ticket must first bear the name of the ticket holder and be presented together with a valid identification document before downloading.

When ordering, you must always state the name of the owner for each ticket. This name will then be checked against an ID document at the entrance. If you need to make changes here (e.g. because of a name change or because someone else should use this ticket) you can do that here. For the processing we charge a fee of 10,00 €. Here is an example:

  • To do this, enter the name of the new ticket holder for the ticket in question using the "Repersonalization" button. Please pay attention to the correct spelling! The personalized tickets must match the ID card.
  • In the next step you enter the new name and click on "Start repersonalization".
  • This process triggers a purchase order that includes a handling fee.
  • After that you will be redirected to the payment page of our payment service provider Mollie to pay the fee.
  • Once the fee is paid, your ticket will be automatically re-personalized.
  • You will also receive an email about this process with the current status.

Marriage:

After a wedding usually one of the surnames changes. In such a case, repersonalization is not necessary. In the identity card is the birth name noted!

.

The designation Fast-Ticket, Hard-Ticket and Waitinglist-Ticket are designations of the organizer and refer to the ordered ticket type. All tickets have the same status and are valid without restrictions for W:O:A 2022.

The designation has no influence when selling via the ticket market!

.

Since the W:O:A / Wacken Wednesday 2021 will be postponed to 2022, you will also have to exchange your tickets. You can choose between three options:

You can exchange your 2021 ticket for a 2022 ticket at no extra cost.

  • You can cash out the value of the ticket
  • .

This can be done with a few clicks here in the ticket center. Under "My Tickets" you will see your 2021 tickets. Here you can now select the exchange option. In addition, you can optionally repersonalize the ticket free of charge, for example, if you have changed your name. Then you confirm everything, check your details again and you're done. You are now in possession of tickets for the year 2022.

.

Your 2021 tickets will be displayed under "My tickets". Here you can now select the appropriate option for the return in the first step. You enter your IBAN, confirm the whole thing, check your details again and you're done. We will then arrange a refund to the account you specified.

.

If a ticket has already been exchanged for the 2022 festival, a return and refund is not possible.

You can post your ticket for sale on the Wacken Ticket Exchange. See also the point "Ticket exchange".

.

For friends and acquaintances, this ticket can be forwarded with the button "Ticket forwarding" and enter the e-mail address of the new ticket holder. See also the point "Ticket forwarding"

.
