- Two elderly men escaped their nursing home to go to a metal music festival
- The police were notified and found the men at the festival at 3 a.m.
- They reportedly looked "disoriented and dazed" but were unharmed
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. Now, those are some hardcore grandpas…
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”, and 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 by 75,000 people. Police have praised this year’s crowd for good behavior, besides a few minor drug busts.
