On the second day of Bråvalla Festivalen the first band I snapped pics of was Highly Suspect. If you’ve been reading my blog you know that I love their music and that I was blown away at their LA gig. This performance wasn’t as good as the one in US, but it still loved it. Unfortunately they were playing at the only stage placed in a tent, and there was mainly bright blue light… If you’re a photographer you know that it equals with problems, haha.
Interview of the day was with Bear’s Den, such a nice British lads! I will link the interview in a post when it’s published. Here's just a picture of me in the press-tent while waiting for them to arrive. Of Mice & Men cancelled their show, the reason? Someone was sick and had to be rushed to a doctor, but nobody seemed to believe them… there was about 30 people waiting for them so they were probably being divas and didn’t want to play in front of so few people. I saw the bassist/singer later on and he didn’t look too concerned, chilling at the festival.
Bear’s Den gig was magical. First time I heard their music (riding pacific coast highway from Malibu to LA during night-great setting for this kind of music) I really liked it, but seeing them live made it so much better. They are really good musicians and you could see how happy they were playing to a crowd that clearly appreciated them. I would love to see them live again!
Seeing Linkin Park
was a bit nostalgic, I really liked them when I was a kid and I was surprised how many songs I actually recognized (and could sing to), haha. It was so much fun taking pictures of them, with great lightning on a pretty good stage!
I’ve been listening to Rae Sremmurd since they dropped their “No Type” single and I’ve been partying and dancing to their music ever since so yeah, I was excited to see them perform! Their security guys were pretty intimidating, pushing festival security around, jumping of the stage, and looking like they were ready to kill anybody that tried to get on the stage (beside girls… all Swedish girls were welcome, haha). They actually knocked down (or whatever you want to call it… It looked like a knockout straight out of American football!) a guy in the pit, crazy! They played in the tent as well so the light was awful, but I didn’t really think about it since there was SO MUCH happening on the stage, in the pit and behind me in the crowd. People were crazy (and crazy drunk), there was a pineapple, champagne, chicks on the stage (pulled up from the crowd) and Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi were jumping, running, air humping, and what not, haha.
