When the Viking ships slowly sail to Schleswig, the Vikings know that it’s time to celebrate the won battles. From 23rd to 25th of August 2018, Baltic Open Air will take place at the Königshügel in Haddeby close to Schleswig, where the Vikings will spend a weekend full of honey wine & beer, many activities and rock-friendly bands.
The first bands have already been confirmed and it will be icy on the BOA 2018, but it does not stop the Vikings from cheering on Eisbrecher and singing loudly. Eisbrecher are back in 2018 and they have their new album "Sturmfahrt", which is a mix of gothic / industrial / rock / metal genre and will convince the crowd. The boys of Kärbholz haven’t had enough of the BOA and will come back to the “Wikingerland” with their "Überdosis Leben" album, but the band will also serve known songs to the fans.
For the first time at the Baltic Open Air you will find Pretty Maids. Founded in early 1982 by guitarist Ken Hammer and singer Ronnie Atkins, Pretty Maids soon established itself as a serious band in the early eighties and made its breakthrough with the release - in April 1987 - of the album "Future World". From the country of origin of the Vikings, the Baltic Open Air presents the band D-A-D for the first time. The four men came together in the early 80's and have their very own style of music - cowpunk.
Among other things, the girls of Thundermother, who not only have good looks, but also the best sound and amazing spirit. Dimple Minds want to quench the thirst of the Vikings with their song "durstige Männer", the Swedish Viking metal band Månegarm is ready for battle and the familiar faces of Torfrock will bring Baltic Open Air 2018 in the mood.
We promised to announce more bands and here are the new additions we’re looking forward to: BRDigung, JBO, Serum 114 and The O’reillys and the Paddyhats.
