Sweden Rock Festival 2015
Alright, better late than never, right? 😉 Here’s some pics and stuff about our gig and weekend at Sweden Rock Festival. And again a huge thank you to everyone that voted for us so that we got the opportunity to play! It was an awesome weekend!
Loading the bus at the rehearsal. We left Stockholm early the day before the show.
We took a lunch break in Västervik where Mac found a huge camping chair.
7 hours later we arrived at Ronneby Brunn Hotell & Spa, where we were staying for the weekend. Mio got to meet one of her idols (Mothers Finest) in the lobby.
After we dropped off everything at the hotel we headed to the festival to pick up our backstage passes and put up some posters and flyers.
And then we met up with Elizabeth that had come from Denmark.
We checked out the stage we’re playing at the next day.
Madde and Mary ate some langos, soo delicious!
Great to be hanging out all together ^_^
Day 2 – Gig day!
We started the day by eating the awesome hotel breakfast. The hotel was so big so it took around 10 minutes just to walk to the dining room. After we packed our stuff and filled the bus once again we headed towards the festival area! We were there at 10 am so the whole festival was still asleep and the gates closed. We started to load in all the gear onto the stage and began with the soundcheck and prepare for the show. During our prep time the rain started pouring down and we went “uh-oh”. It was still early though and when the festival area opened and people started to gather in front of the stage the rain stopped! Happy about the weather we kicked off the show at 11:30, opening with the title track of our new album “Burning Insight”. The gig went great, we had a blast on stage, the crowd was awesome and we couldn’t be happier with the whole weekend.

After the show
After the show we went to the VIP-restaurang and had a 3 course meal. Everything was soo delicious!
Mary and Elizabeth outside our tent lounge. Of course Elizabeth had brought her drinking horn \m/
Elizabeth found a Copenhagen trailer!
Maria had her birthday coming up in 2 days so we celebrated her a little earlier and sang happy birthday.
And at last it was time for Judas Priest, awesome!
On our way back to Stockholm we went to see the memorial stone of Cliff Burton.
Lunch break on our way home.
