Bitcasino sponsoring free virtual metal concert
29 July 2020
(PRESS RELEASE) -- Crypto pioneers have joined forces with Wacken World Wide to bring a free 3-day virtual metal concert to millions of music fans, starting on 29 July.
Crypto gaming pioneers Bitcasino will be rocking out as headline sponsors of Wacken World Wide, a new digital music festival featuring some of the world's most popular metal bands.
With the annual Wacken Open Air festival cancelled this year, Bitcasino is stepping in to support the digital version which will give metalheads from across the globe the chance to watch performances from the likes of Blind Guardian, Beyond the Black and Hämatom.
And even better, the virtual event, which takes place from 29 July 29 to 1 August, will be completely free to attend via stream.

"We are all about fun, fast and fair entertainment here at Bitcasino, and that's why we're putting the pedal to the metal alongside Wacken World Wide. We're really impressed by how the Wacken team is innovating during these tough times, and we think it is important to support them at a time when we could all do with a little bit of the thrill, intensity and passion that metal brings."
Tom Küppers, Marketing Manager at Wacken World Wide has voiced his company's thanks to Bitcasino for supporting the first-ever Wacken World Wide virtual festival. The company has worked hard to adapt and deliver the chance for millions of fans to rock out in their own homes, and Bitcasino's support is helping us do exactly that.
Mr Küppers stated:
"It is fantastic to see innovative, creative and flexible entertainment coming together during this difficult time, and we can't wait to welcome metal fans to Wacken World Wide later this month."
With the entertainment business hit by the ongoing global pandemic, Bitcasino has moved quickly and decisively to support the arts. In May, it sponsored the virtual COVID-19 relief charity festival D3: Donate, Dance, Decentralize, which was organised by the Giving Block.
Wacken World Wide follows successful streaming from the metal music masters. There were more than six million streams of performances from the world's most famous metal festival last year alone.
