Elderly German Men Escape Nursing Home, Go To Heavy Metal Festival
I'm not making this up. Two men from Germany decided they were going to this festival, at any cost.
According to USA Today, the nursing home staff noticed the men were missing on Friday and alerted the police, who found the men about 3 a.m. the next morning at Wacken Open Air, the world's biggest heavy metal festival.
The men did not want to leave, and according to a police spokesperson, the nursing home organized a return transport soon after the men returned to the home.
This is the 29th year of the festival in Schleswig Holstein, and is four days of food, festivities and of course, music. Headliners this year included Judas Priest, Hatebreed, In Flames, and others.
