Motto: drunk & dirty?!?
I am not a festival virgin any more!
I had an awesome time at the Highfield Festial at Leipzig last weekend with a few friends. The weather was completly crazy: from nearly having another heatstroke to the world ending at the last 2 concerts.
I was happily surprised at Madsen’s performance, in my eyes they had the best show including fire and fireworks on stage. Followed by Fettes Brot which were awesome, too and of the foreign bands I must mention Billy Talent and Blink 182. I have never seen a drummer like Travis Barker before. I have not been listening to their songs that much before although I know all the famous ones so I didn’t notice that the other 2 of blink weren’t playing correctly (according to some fans). I just enjoyed the show as it was the last concert of the festival.
Mentioning the good performances I must add that I was VERY disappointed by Wir sind Helden’s and Unheilig’s performance, they are a lot better on the ipod. Also Placebo wasn’t as good as expected, their version of Every You Every Me totally didn’t give the feeling the original one does. 🙁
Nevertheless it was a great experience. Camping, BBQ, beer, friends, jokes from dawn to midnight, concerts nearly all day … 🙂
Now I am the proud owner of my first festival wristband!
