Show at the Wacken Open Air Metal Festival to be filmed for DVD/Blu-ray release!
30.07.2013
The time has come soon to wrap up the magical & memorable one-and-a-half year `Imaginaerum World Tour´ 2012-2013! We still have three shows left, one of them being at the legendary Wacken Open Air Metal Festival on the 3rd of August. This show will be something extra special, since it will be released later this year on DvD/Blu-ray, together with a massive `Imaginaerum World Tour´ 2012-2013 documentary. Our darling flying Dutchwoman, Floor Jansen, has been nothing but incredible during her time in Nightwish on this tour, so this is a perfect opportunity to immortalize the current vibe of the band on film!

Nightwish FanPOD
04.07.2013
We have always been enthusiastic about new things, both in music and technology. We have tablet computers for fun, and noticed that they could also be useful for the band and fans. That's why we started our own "fan magazine" for tablet computers, and the Vol. 1 is now available! More updates are coming in autumn 2013, and you'll see more previously unpublished pictures, videos, and other interesting stuff and benefits.

Check out the first Nightwish FanPOD Vol 1. here: http://www.fanpod.fi/nightwish

The Atlantean Code has been cracked!
12.06.2013
In IMAGINAERUM - THE MOVIE we hid a secret message in one of the scenes with Gem and Ann (check out the painting on the wall of old Thomas' room). Now the code has been deciphered by STEFANO MANGONI from Italy.

This is an incredible achievement since we thought this secret would remain with us for years!

As promised in the secret message, he will be rewarded with "a Treasure", which includes a canvas of the IMAGINAERUM album cover artwork signed by the whole band + 2 concert tickets with a backstage access + Meet & Greet with the band to any show he wants to come on our next World Tour 2015 - 2016.

Huge congratulations, Stefano!!

NIGHTWISH


Below some thoughts from the Italian master detective:

"Well, I was watching IMAGINAERUM for the second time because the first time I watched it with subtitles so I didn't enjoy the movie fully. So the second time I focused on the wonderful images.  
 
Then I saw it, the Atlantean code.  
 
I recognised immediately the code because when I was little I learned it and used it to write secret messages with my friends and a diary. Atlantis is one of my favourite Disney movies ever.  
 
Then I took a screenshot of the code but at first I thought I couldn't decode it because it was very tiny. It took me a couple of days to discover that the frame was upside down.  
 
Then I spent an hour translating the single words one by one. It wasn't very easy because the screenshot was a bit pixeled (I bought the DVD version of IMAGINAERUM so the quality is a little bit lower than on the blu-ray) and because English is not my first language.  
 
When I translated the first line "To find a treasure be..." I got so excited  that I had to wait some minutes to recover myself from the emotion of realizing that I found something "big"!  
 
The morning after I ran to the postal office and sent my mail to the shown address immediately.
 
This has been a great experience!"
