PICTURE at Sweden Rock Festival 2017

PICTURE at Sweden Rock Festival 2017

One of the most anticipated gigs at this year’s Sweden Rock Festival took place on the 4 Sound Stage quite early on during Friday. Some bands come out at the right time but still do not seem to be in the right place at the right time or just don’t have the luck that is required to hit big commercially. It is safe to say this is the case for the Dutch veterans in Picture. The…

The 2017 SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL – Day 3 Recap (Feature/Festival Review)

The 2017 SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL – Day 3 Recap (Feature/Festival Review)

Friday, June 9, 2017 – Sweden Rock Festival 2017 – Day #3 Bring on the coffee! Rising and gathering at breakfast in the hotel lobby, coffee began its waking effects. With four dudes sharing a hotel room, grabbing a morning shower is a procedure of waiting no matter what you do. But being last and stepping into an inch of cold water covering the floor is uncool guys! Not their fault particularly, we still can’t…

The 2017 SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL – Recap Day 2 (Festival Review/Feature)

Thursday, June 8, 2017 – Sweden Rock Festival 2017 – Day #2 Hotel breakfast and buckets of coffee started Thursday, June 8th. Then it was some confusing shower experiences. No, not like that you perverts! We couldn’t figure out the taps as they possessed no markings whatsoever. And the tub was basically open in the bathroom with only a little shower curtain that didn’t even go half way around. Almost impossible to prevent a bathroom…

T’was The Night Before Sweden Rock…

T’was The Night Before Sweden Rock…

T’was the night before Sweden Rock and all through the town no one was quiet…certainly not The Meister. Hard to believe that it’s year five! My fifth excursion from Toronto to Solvesborg for Sweden Rock Festival. Perhaps the single greatest music event held on land (nothing beats the floating party that is Monsters of Rock Cruise). Four days, Five stages, over 80 bands, many that will never hit North American soil. Music lovers from around…

Rock n’ Skull 2016 Final Day…Finally.

Rock n’ Skull 2016 Final Day…Finally.

Finally, we come to the final day at Rock n’ Skull Festival 2016. It’s taken quite awhile to get to this point in the story, but here we go! After our now standard routine of hotel breakfast and returning to the odorous room to kill time before the venue, we prepared for the final day. This day was to be the shortest at Rock n’ Skull 2016, having less bands than on previous days. The leader…

Sweden Rock Festival 2016: The Complete Coverage

Sweden Rock Festival 2016: The Complete Coverage

Another great time at probably the greatest of it’s kind in the world, Sweden Rock Festival 2016 has drawn to a close.

Consequently, Sweden Rock Festival 2016, Meister‘s fourth time, saw many friends from around the World (Sweden, Switzerland, U.K., Brasil, Canada) attending the event. In addition were fellow Decibel Geeks Mikael “The…

Sweden Rock Festival Overview 2016

Sweden Rock Festival Overview 2016

…and so it has come to an end once again. Tragic, it really is. My fourth consecutive adventure to Scandinavian Sweden for what I hold high as the greatest Rock festival in the world is over for another year. And I’ve been to a lot for comparison’s sake. Upon reflection as I sit here in the Copenhagen airport (closest to the festival grounds) awaiting my “tin can in the sky” chariot to carry me back…
