Thursday became a "Night to Remember", with mainly "classical" Heavy Metal bands appearing, such as the Scorpions in On the actual Party Stage, younger and more modern bands play as a contrast to the "Night to Remember".
In addition, the event is accompanied by a rich complementary programme; in addition to a merchant area — obligatory for music festivals — a beer garden has been operating since , in which the Wacken Firefighters ' marching band opens the festival before its official start.
On Thursday in , the "Hellfest Stage" was initiated. Since , the so-called "Metal Train" has been travelling from Zurich to Wacken and back before and after the festival to bring fans to the Northern German village and provide a matching entertainment programme.

Although it is meant to be a fun tournament, in which creative outfits and names take precedence over athletic performance, the award ceremony after the tournament has been held on one of the stages since and prizes can be won.
In , the "Full Metal Church" took place in Wacken for the first time. Marking the local church's th anniversary, the team, together with the parish, organised a concert by the band Faun , which was framed by two readings and sermons by " Volxbibel " author Martin Dreyer.
Both the concert and the services were completely overcrowded by festival visitors. The festival is one of the Metal scene's highlights of the year.

On 5 April Thomas Hess, the festival's longtime production and former security director, passed away. He had joined festival management in as a former tour manager of Böhse Onkelz and was considered one of the most important leading figures for the festival, along with the remaining founders and the Trede family, who organise the camping areas and the camping supervisors as subcontractors.

Up until a few years ago, Wacken's official town signs were either replaced by plastic signs spelling Heavy Metal Town during W:O:A or bolted more tightly because they were often stolen as souvenirs.
Some shops are now selling black cotton bags with the Wacken town sign on one side and the words "This town sign I may keep" on the other.
An action for exceeding the maximum noise limit, brought before the Administrative Court of Schleswig by residents of Wacken, ended in January with an out-of-court settlement.

While the large stages and tent stages are open to all genres, the remaining stages are dedicated to specific themes. The Wackinger Stage is located in the medieval area of the festival and is played primarily by bands from Folk, Pagan and Medieval genres, while the Wasteland Stage, which was established in , is geared towards music with an apocalyptic touch.
