New episode of behind the scenes at Welcome To Wacken 360° Virtual Reality Documentary

BangerTV has posted a second, behind-the-scenes look at the forthcoming virtual reality documentary “WELCOME TO WACKEN,” the first fully 360° virtual reality music festival documentary, produced by Canada’s BANGER FILMS (Metal Evolution, Iron Maiden: Flight 666) and SECRET LOCATION.

In this exclusive clip, cameras follow the crew as they prepare to capture fans from around the world storming Wacken’s hallowed gates for the opening of the main stages. Later, the brave and diligent crew race against a rainstorm to wrangle a group of fans into a 360° circle headbang.



On the third day of shooting in the muddy fields of Northern Germany, Creative Director Marty Flanagan acknowledges:

“It’s been incredible getting to know what metal really means to people and what drives them to travel half-way around the world to be at Wacken.” 

In other news, ‘WELCOME TO WACKEN’ will be screened at the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal. Fans will have the opportunity to watch it free as part of Fantasia’s VR 360 Experience, from July 19 through July 23. For more details, visit:

As previously revealed, ‘WELCOME TO WACKEN’ is an interactive virtual reality documentary that takes viewers inside Germany’s Wacken Open Air – the biggest heavy metal festival on earth. A story in five parts as told by different fans from around the world, the 30-minute film climaxes with a live performance from ARCH ENEMY that puts viewers on stage with the band. It will be available on most major VR platforms later this month.
