Two elderly men snuck out of their nursing home so that they could attend Wacken Open Air Festival, a four-day metal music festival in Wacken, Germany.
Police were notified after the discovery that the two men were missing from the center. Authorities eventually found them...at the festival...at three in the morning, looking “disoriented and dazed."
Apparently the elderly metalheads were reluctant to leave. “They obviously liked the metal festival,” says police spokeswoman Merle Neufeld. “The care home quickly organized a return transport after police picked them up.”
Good to know they’re ok after attending the massive festival, which was completely sold out with 75,000 people in attendance. Police have praised this year’s crowd for good behavior, saying besides a few minor drug busts, the crowd behaved themselves. Wonder if the older men kept folks in line?
