SiESTA! Day 2

Cool day I got to say. Not as interesting bands as the other days. But I found lots of new ones,

started out with Hanna Turi, lovely singer / songwriter probably got her inspiration from Tori Amos, Regina Spektor and musicians like those. Lovely voice, great piano playing.

After that I went to Marcus Price & Carli. Boring.
So I decided to chill for some ours. Went out and saw that you could get free Monster, so I took one and we sat in the sun for like an hour.
Then we went in again, checked out This is head, they were good. Sounded like Efterklang. But decided that it was kind of lame since every song sounded the same live. So we went to a band called Alcoholic Faith Mission, they were awesome ! Also sounded like Efterklang but much better than This is head. Really enjoyed them. But I had to go early because I needed to get a good place at slagsmålsklubbens concert.

In the picture : My friends and Alcoholic Faith Mission!



We waited for the concert to start. And when the first tones came out of the speakers. The crowd went crazy. Dancing, moshing and screaming. Amazing concert. The music they're playing is like electro/dance music. Good band to see live if you want a good crowd . Or good party music.

Under the next hours there were no special bands, loved Me and my army though. But I've got nothing to write about any bands that I saw until the clock turned 22:00 at siesta. Rebecca & Fiona was on the stage, and that was the highlight of the day probably, so good. Great performers, great music, once again the crowd was awesome. CHECK THEM OUT !


Rebecca & Fiona



I saw Håkan Hellström too, not a very big fan. But it was okey !


The day ended with Meshuggah, boring singer, boring mosh / crowd the only okey thing was the instruments I guess..

Siesta Festival 2011 day 1

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 !



video

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 ! :)
