The Wacken Open Air heavy metal music festival is held every year in Germany. Some 75,000 metalheads came to the party this year - and the organizers made sure they had the right stuff to promote a party spirit.
Wacken Open Air Festival [constructed] a 7-kilometer [more than four mile] network of pipes to quench its thirsty fans. Attendees will drink an average of 5.1 liters of beer each over the festival.
The new pipeline will carry about 400,000 liters (105,000 gallons) of beer through the grounds of Wacken Open Air Festival in northern Germany.
The 75,000 metal fans who attend the event each year consume an average of about 5.1 liters [about one and a third US gallons] of beer over the three-day festival, according to the statistics portal Statista. This compares to 3.1 liters per person for the Rock am Ring Festival.

The new pipeline will have enough pressure to pour six beers in six seconds.
Police said the fans of Wacken drink a lot but are "mostly overexcited and peaceful."

Here's the publicity trailer for this year's festival. You can see daily reports on proceedings on the festival's YouTube channel.
With all that beer in circulation, it sure sounds like a Wacken good time was had by all!
