WACKEN, GERMANY (1010 WINS) -- A pair of German men escaped from their nursing home to go to a heavy metal festival.

When the home reported the two missing, police found them at 3 a.m. at Wacken Open Air, the world's biggest heavy metal festival.

A police spokeswoman told a German publication they were found in a 'disoriented and dazed state' but were nonetheless reluctant to leave.

More than 75,000 people are expected to attend the four day festival.
