A long time ago…

Okay! Long time, no see!

I was busy for a while and then I forgot about the blog.. But I’m back. But I will not blog evvery day. Maybe once every week for a start.

I know I’ve written alot about the Siesta!-festival, and I will write some more today, because the festival was last week!

There were some great artists:

Plain White T’s, The Kooks, Slagsmålsklubben, Wolfmother, bob hund, Håkan Hällström, Henrik Berggren, The Sounds, Hercules & Love Affair and many more…

The best live performence at the festival, and probably top ten I’ve ever seen was Hercules & Love Affair.They danced from the start and got the visitors to dance at that same moment. No breaks at all, it was one long non-stop dancing inferno! I loved it!!! Check them out!!

Slagsmålsklubben was as usual the funniest act. They had a big water bottle-war with the audience, and their live show will as usual be remembered.

The Kooks made the crowd wild. There was alot of people pushing and trying to dance. Alot of people fell (including me an my girlfriend), bur they were great. One of the bands I came for!

Plain White T’s made the crowd sing along. During Het There Delailah, I could barely hear Tom Higgenson.

There were also many nice activities there! In a library-tent, you could make your own pins, t-shirts(or other clothes) and borrow books(you could even take one home!
In another tent you could relax and play pingis and table football.

I don’t like the camping though.. It’s far away from the festival area and it’s to much nasty people that almost crushes the tents… At least I didn’t hear any stories of people who cut the tents open and steal everything this year!

My girlfriend got sick 2 of the 4 nights.. That wasn’t fun at all… We stayed up those nights, walking around the camping and the rest of Hässleholm.. I got really tired, and we stopped at some places to rest, but as soon as she relaxed, she started to shake as feel nauseuos… We went to a doctor to find out if it was anything to worry about. At one of he concerts everyone fell over her and she was completely covered of people for a long time, so we were a little worried that it could come from damages from that accident. He said that it probably wasn’t anything wrong, everything seemed to be normal! :D

Overall, I’m pleased wih the festival. But it wasn’t as good as I hoped it would be.. No camping next year, is the plan!


It’s cold, but I can feel the spring running closer

If you’ve followed this blog, you already know that I’ve written alot about the SiESTA! festival, or more correctly, the bands and who have been performing there, or will be performing there. Every year I look around to see what festivals I want to go to, and every year it changes. But SiESTA is one of the festivals that always stay on the list.

They have great music, a nice camping(although there’s allways room for improvement), great food and merch and of course a very competitive price.

The artists I want to see this year are so far:

BROTHER [UK]
Håkan Hellström [SE]
Crookers [IT]
The Sounds [SE]
Daniel Adams-Ray [SE]
Slagsmålsklubben [SE]
Adam Tensta [SE]
Oskar Linnros [SE]
Den Svenska Björnstammen [SE]
Billie the Vision & the Dancers [SE]

You can read my posts about some of these if you want.


Festival: Siesta!

Yesterday, Siesta! released five new acts for the festival early this summer. Håkan Hellström, Crookers, Graveyard, Oddysey and Brother are welcomed into the already good troop of artists. It’s atleast worth the price, and I’m certain that there will be many more great bands and artists released soon.

I will surely make the most out of this festival. I won’t walk home with clean clothes. I will crawl home in my own dirt.


The Plan.

This is a post that I have planned (get it?) to make since I started the blog. But that wont help to make it better, I haven’t really come up with anything interesting to write. I’ve listened to this wonderful band in five, soon six, years. Int the fall of 2005 I heard one of their songs, and I was mesmerized.

All the caos, the off pitched notes, the squeeky voise, it was amazing! I couldn’t stop listening!

In 2007 they came to Sweden. And better yet, to a town just 20 minutes away. To a festival i already had a one-day-ticket for. And it just happened to be that I had a ticket for the day The Plan was playing! I was really hyped, me aand a friend took the train early so we would be sure that we didn’t miss it!(I was the only one of us that liked The Plan)

I thought it was to good to be true. A favourite band, live.

We walked the 15 minutes to the festival-area. My friend had forgot his ticket at home. We walked back to the station, and found an internet café, so we could print out his ticket from there, good.

We walked back to the festival. We walked the way behind the stage were The Plan played. They were playing their last song. I was very disapointed that I missed the show, but at least I heard one of their songs! And it was one of my favourites, Embrace my baeuty.

So, here you go: The Plan – Embrace me beauty

The Plan – Mon Amour

The Plan – Foggy Days


The Sounds

First of all. I’m sorry that I haven’t uppdated the blog. I have been very busy with my studies lately.

Now to the topic of today: The Sounds

The singer, Maja, and her band are one of the most successful Swedish bands. They released their debute album in 2002, and the word about them spread fast, not only in Sweden but also in The US and other countries. For one band to grow so fast in popularity abroad are not very usual in Sweden.

They are definatly one of my favourite bands! And I will give an review of the band after their show on the Siesta! festival this spring.

Watch these videos if you haven’t heard about them or just want to here more of them!

One of their most popular songs, and their first hit!

This one has been among my top 3 of their song since I heard it for the first time!
