We are always happy to work with partners who contact us with their creative ideas – Water Is Right is one of them. We know about the importance of access to clean drinking water, which is why we are grateful for the important work Water Is Right is doing in this regard and the fact that they include the equally important aspect of sustainability in their activities.

The Wacken Open Air is the biggest heavy metal festival in the world. Started in 1990 with 800 visitors, today more than 85,000 fans from all over the world make the pilgrimage to Wacken in Schleswig-Holstein every year and make the 2,000-soul community the centre of the festival scene for several days. As a long-standing organiser of the Wacken Open Air, the ICS Festival Service GmbH bundles areas such as band management, the "Wacken Foundation", tour booking, music publishing, metal travel, merchandising sales and ticketing. In cooperation with partners, this network constantly produces creative solutions and ideas that revolutionize the festival experience, enable technical innovations and produce extraordinary event concepts.
In 2019, for it’s 30th anniversary, Wacken’s organizer entered into a partnership with the Water Is Right Foundation. With every WIR Bottle and every WIR water dispenser, the Wacken sets an example of how to reduce plastic waste and supports water and sanitation projects in developing countries while creating sustainable jobs on site.
