The reformed DARK ANGEL — featuring guitarists Jim Durkin and Eric Meyer, vocalist Ron Rinehart, and drummer Gene Hoglan (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD) — are the latest act to have been officially confirmed for next year's installment of Wacken Open Air festival, which is scheduled to take place between Jul. 31 and Aug. 2, 2003 in Wacken, Germany. They will be joined on the bill by the likes of ICED EARTH, GAMMA RAY and STRATOVARIUS, all of whom were confirmed to appear at Europe's biggest metal gathering a couple of weeks ago. Other groups rumored to have secured slots at next year's festival include SINNER, PRIMAL FEAR and ANGEL WITCH.
