Hobby will be on show at Wacken Open Air 2019 and is supporting the festival with a number of caravans

The Wacken Open Air Festival, W:O:A for short, has been sold out for many months, and Hobby is helping out once again this year by providing a number of caravans for the backstage area. In return, the north German manufacturer of caravans and motorhomes will be given an attractive plot of land right in front of the main entrance to the festival site. Together with the Hobby dealer “Ostsee Campingpartner” based in Lensahn, a few of the brand’s latest vehicles will be on show and can be admired by visitors from 29 July to 3 August 2019.

Some 75,000 fans of heavy metal music will be doing some serious headbanging at this year’s W:O:A, and a large number of passionate campers from all over the world will be among them. From simple tents to luxurious motorhomes, every form of camping is represented at the gigantic campsite in Wacken, Schleswig-Holstein. The perfect platform for the leisure vehicle manufacturer based just 50 kilometres away to showcase the brand and a few of its latest products. “This is the fifth time in a row that Hobby will have been on show at the world’s largest heavy metal festival. We are always overwhelmed by just how enthusiastic metal campers are about our vehicles, and it confirms to us that the two brands, Hobby and W:O:A, are a perfect match for one another,” says Hobby Marketing Director Thomas Neubert, a staunch festival camper himself.

Before the official festival begins on 1 August 2019, visitors can take a good look around Hobby motorhomes, caravans and vans from the 29 July 2019 onwards in the so-called “Supporter Area” of the Wacken Open Air Festival, situated right in front of the main entrance. This includes the legendary Wacken Vantana, which Hobby trainees have transformed from a standard vehicle into a unique W:O:A show car – a real highlight that never fails to draw a huge crowd.
