A two-minute German-language report on this year's Wacken Open Air festival, which is being held July 30 - August 1, 2009 in Wacken, Germany, can be viewed below.According to Reuters, fans attending this year's Wacken Open Air were asked on Thursday (July 30) to avoid "hugging, kissing on the cheek, and shaking hands" lest they spread the H1N1 influenza. On its web site, the health ministry of Germany's northern Schleswig-Holstein region optimistically advised revelers to restrain from any such sociable behavior so as to minimize the infection risk at the festival, which runs until August 1. It also recommended fans did not share bottles of beer. "We know that kissing and what have you can't be ruled out," said ministry spokesman Oliver Breuer. "They're just tips." MOTÖRHEAD, HEAVEN & HELL and SAXON are among the bands that were scheduled to perform at the three-day festival, which organizers expected to attract about 75,000 fans.
