Metal fronts are building a 7-km long, underground grapevine to move 400,000 litres of beer to a festival in north Germany.
No, that’s not a line from Jack Black’s latest movie, but an actual initiative put in place for Wacken Open Air Festival, the world’s biggest metal music festival.
Organisers found out that the 75,000 metal love who attend the contest per year exhaust an average of 5.1 litres per person over the three daylight festival, according to statistics portal Statista.
The pipeline, buried 80 cm beneath the dirt to keep the beer cold, will solve logistics problems of racetracks going back and forth, devastating the festival ground.
“In this behavior, we will no longer have to distribute truck onus of beer kegs across the propositions each day, ” festival spokeswoman Frederike Arns told Deutsche Press Agentur.
The new grapevine will have enough pressing to swarm six beers in six seconds.
This year’s Wacken Open Air, featuring headliners such as Megadeath, Alice Cooper, Marilyn Manson, will take place from 3-5 August.
