VIP-visit at Sweden Rock Festival 2016
This past Thursday, I visited Sweden’s biggest Rock/metal-festival – Sweden Rock Festival.
I was given a 4-dags and VIP-pass by the firm where I work, as we have the festival as one of our clients. Due to high workload, I could only fit in a one day visit, but it was a good taste of the festival, which by the way celebrated its 25th anniversary this year!
I’ve never been much of a festival goer, and it felt a bit off to be on the ground and not on stage, but it was also quite interesting to experience it all from a visitors perspective. To be honest, I’m not a big fan of any of the bands that played this day but there were some I recognized and took the chance to see while there – other I kinda stumbled upon, but anyhow; Music tends to be better live.
After getting into the area quick and easy via the VIP-entrance (which in my book was probably the best feature in my opinion of the VIP-ticket), I took a stroll around the area. This festival was way bigger than I thought!
There were two big stages, complete with three smaller, all scattered over this field that rendered by boots more like a relic from the dessert war by the end of the day.
Below is a couple of the pictures I took during my visit. Are you a fan of any of these bands? Leave a comment below!
The Kentucky Headhunters (U.S)
First band met entering the area. Didn’t stay to long, but they had a typical southern country rock-groove going.
No idea that they still excised?
One of two bands that I decided to see on beforehand as I got the news that I were going. Lzzy Hale got a good voice and got the audience going as soon as the band entered the stage.
After seeing Halestorm for a while, I snuck off to the VIP-area to get myself something to eat and drink. The area were pretty nice! Then it was back out again to see the other band I decided on before;
Not a big listener, but I felt like I had to see them while “in town” so to speak – who knows for how much longer Nikki Sixx will be going on?
Entombed AD (SWE)
Neon Rose (SWE)
The Struts (U.K)
I found this to be a quite nice day, probably one of my more unusual “work days”.
