The quiet village of Wacken in Schleswig-Holstein, in northern Germany, becomes the mecca of 75 thousand fans of heavy music each year in August. Wacken Open Air has been organised for 25 years and it is the world's largest open-air metal festival. Made to mark the event's anniversary, Heitker's film takes its viewers on a journey through all the circles of this inferno, giving them the opportunity to feel as if they were actually there. Four festival regulars from three continents serve as the guides to Wacken. Live shows include Rammstein, Deep Purple, Motörhead, Alice Cooper, Anthrax, and many others.
