Elderly residents sneak leave nursing home to go to huge metal festival

Elderly residents sneak leave nursing home to go to huge metal festival

Whether or not that happens will be a different story altogether.

After being alerted by the nursing home, authorities reportedly located the missing pair at a casual 3 a.m.at the festival - that's when the last stages finish up for the night, so these guys are pretty hardcore.

Police were called to a German nursing home after they realised the gentlemen were missing from the centre, only for them to have been found at the world's biggest heavy metal festival, Wacken Open Air. But they had a bloody brilliant time, we bet. Headliners included Clawfinger, Dimmu Borgir, In Extremo, Judas Priest, Nightwish, Oomph as well as the Red Hot Chili Peppers. "Both were disoriented and apathetic", Merle Neufeld, a local police spokesman, told NDR broadcaster.

The men refused to leave so had to be escorted back to their nursing home in a taxi with a patrol auto following, reported Deutsche Welle.

The 29th edition of the legendary festival was fully sold out, with an expected 75,000 people expected to attend the four-day festival.

Wacken Open Air festival was first held in 1990 and is now attended by more than 86,000 heavy metal fans.

Police praised festival-goers for good behaviour and said they had only been needed in relation to a few minor drug seizures.
