Here we go again ... ;D I am back from this monster of fest from Monday but for variety of reasons i dint really have time or energy to write down any kind of report. So I will attempt it now ...
Anyway .... there was one innovation for me : for the first time I took a "travel agency" to take me there on bus ... yeah, the notorious OZZY and POTKAN (=rat) from Pilsen .... they have been around for years organizing car / mini van / coach trips to gigs and festivals over Europe (esp. Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Belgium i think ...).
So anyway, since the WFF fest was somewhere behind Leipzig (small airport 40 km from Leipzig) and since it is basically in the middle of nowhere and the only way to stay at the gig was in the camp site, I thought it would be more convenient to go on an organized tour. I was actually right, though for a moment i felt a bit awkward mixing up with groups of people who already knew each other and toured with ozzy for years ... ;D
But anyway, couple of days before the departure i learned we would be leaving Prague on Thursday before midnight ... i panicked a bit as to what i still had to do at work before that day ... in result i did actually all the deadlined work on Monday / in one day ;D ... quite typical !
We arrived to the fest locality around 7 am .... surprise surprise ... the gates / camp opened around noon ;D ... so we were standing there, fest site in the distance,
people relaxing in the fields ... and we "chicks" tried not to think of "ladies" room and our dare need ... guys obviously just happily ran around the field pissing wherever they found it comfy enough to do so. After some hours of waiting i just went to the nearest security post and inquired about a "piss house" ... and was directed to one of those dixies / mobile toilets standing out of the camp .... geeez what a relief ;D ... you could notice change in the ladies faces after that discovery !
Having described this, this pre-discovery stage was perhaps the only really unpleasant moment of the whole trip !!!! .... well, safe for the fest security' twisted obsession with pixels on your camera ... but on that later !
As for the fest programme, it was mostly more extreme forms of metal, hard core, some punk ... for most part, all excellent stuff ! Hats off to the organizers.
To be cont.
