The men refused to leave so had to be escorted back to their nursing home in a taxi with a patrol auto following, reported Deutsche Welle.

Deutsche Well is reporting that police are saying that the men escaped their nursing home on Friday and were located at 3 am in the heart of the festival grounds.

Talking to German broadcaster Norddeutscher Rundfunk (via DW), police spokesperson Merle Neufeld said they were "disorientated and dazed" but didn't want to leave, so police escorted them home.

"However, the two seemed disoriented and apathetic". "The care home quickly organised a return transport after police picked them up".

Approximately 75,000 people attend Wacken each year, growing since its beginnings in 1990.

Police praised revelers for decent behavior with little interference needed in relation with minor drug seizures.
