So, how to start ? It was the best thing ever.
The first day started out with Last days of april, they were awesome. But it was a shame that they got to play 13:30, it was boring since there were no people and I don't like concerts when the sun is shining, not that kind of music atleast. It's supposed to be a little bit darker. But if you get the chance to see them. Do it !
By the way, I'll only write about the concerts I liked the most or the ones that was famous bands playing. Pictures will be on my favourites, and I barely filmed anything.
After Last days of april we went around the area checking out everything, nice people, nice food haha! Nice shops and everything. It was just so awesome. I was just chilling, when i suddenly see a face with curly hair. I remeber him, it's Hugh harris from THE KOOKS !!! I was just chocked and ran towards him and screaming hello! (stalker here) haha. I saw that the drummer was with him to. So they said hello back at me, but I didn't get the chance to take a photo. I was joking with my friend that Luke pritchard will come by and i'll talk to him and take a photo. And then all of a sudden, I see him. Luke... Luke Pritchard, the singer from The Kooks. I thought I was dreaming, and once again I was running and screaming hello haha. I felt like a child in a candy factory. I talked to him and it was fantastic, he was such a nice guy !
I was very happy and it felt like my life was complete haha. We decided to go and check out a screamo band called Asking Alexandria. It was crazy, and a really good concert. They moshed like animals, hit eachoter. I got knuckles in my head and lots of hits from other heads. So that was a little too much.
But it was a great band check them out !
I still couldn't understand that I'd actually met Luke prtichard. I was just thinking, Holy shit, did I actually meet Luke ? Am I really even going to see The Kooks or am I dreaming !?
Next up was Plain White T's, boring and awesome at the same time, lots of songs sounden the same and weren't good. They hade a viking sound haha. Though I gotta say Hey there delilah was fantastic ! The whole crowd sang along and the performance was really good!
Now it was time to wait, wait for hours at the biggest stage. To stand in the front to see the kooks. But before they would play, Ladytron was the act. And I hated them. It was probably one of the most boring concerts i've ever seen. First of all, they just stood there like robots singing, there were no power from them. So boring, second of all. It wasn't good, also the crowd seemed to be high on ecstasy or something. Cause they were really annoying. It was bad bad bad. Torture.
It was only 1 hour left, 1 hour and I'll be screaming to the kooks for the 2nd time. Amazing..
Finally the clock hit 21:00, people were singing and the whole crowd was moving in all directions, people even passed out. But then they came out. It was once again a dream. Fantastic. Everyone sang along and it was crazy. They played 3 songs, everything was so fantastic. They even played seaside. Made me really happy since they don't play it very often.
The kooks is seriously amazing live, hard to describe !
Aaaaaaaaaaah the kooks was over, sad moment </3. But, there was still bands that we were going to check out and then you shouldn't be sad about that the kooks was over..
We went to see Hercules & Love Affair. It was really good ! Hipsters making dance music isn't something new. But this was special. Amazing live, great crowd and the sound was amazing. Also the people in the band were good performers, made everything fun to watch ! I'm glad I didn't miss it !
Now it was time for the last band that I was planning to see, den svenska björnstammen. It was soooo cool, awesome music and everyone was dancing like hell ! Check out the band. They're nice!
After that I chilled in the festival area. Not so interesting, i'll write about day 2 tomrrow. Hope you enjoyed it. Bye ! :)
