4-Mile Beer Pipeline Installed For Largest Metal Music Festival In The World (PICS)

by 3 years ago

Pipelines are a pretty polarizing and explosive topic these days. But there’s one pipeline that might just make everyone happy – a beer pipeline.

The Wacken Open Air (WOA) Festival in Germany is the largest metal music festival in the world with an estimated 75,000 fans who will attend the three-day headbanging event. With all of those metalheads rocking out to over 150 bands including Megadeath, Alice Cooper, and Marilyn Manson from August 3-5 there will be a great demand for beer. A demand so overwhelming that the festival is installing a 4.3-mile beer pipeline.


The festival believes that each person will consume 5.1 liters of beer over the three days. Take that figure and times it by 75,000 fans and you’ll need 382,500 LITERS OF BEER!

Instead of having a constant caravan of beer trucks headed to the festival, a beer pipeline is being installed. This pipeline actually is more eco-friendly and cost-effective than trucks driving to the festival.


The new beer pipeline will have enough pressure to pour six beers in six seconds. Besides beer, there will also be a pipeline for water, as well as a pipeline for taking away liquid waste from the site. Let’s hope they don’t mix up the tubes.

They are even burying the pipeline underground so the beer stays cold. Plus it’s probably because if that pipeline was above ground there would definitely be some beer pirates poking holes in it and siphoning off delicious free beer.
