Where I stayed
Intending to leave for Prague on the thursday, I met my friends on the way to the Rock im Park festival (www.rock-im-park.com), and having seen the line-up, decided it would be silly not to join them
The absolute highlites for me were Depeche mode - they put on an amazing show, all shifting screens and weird visuals - and seeing Goldfrapp, one of my favourite bands, on a tiny stage, with only a couple of hundred in the audiance, but all really enjoying it. Also, jumping around (in a mildly intoxicated state) near the front of the crowd as Korn were playing was fun. Couldn't make out much of their show, just tried to stay on my feet most of the time. Not as easy as it sounds. Just to rub it in for those of you that weren't there, I saw: The Kaiser Chiefs, Sportfreund Stiller, Franz Ferdinand, Placebo, Depeche Mode, Goldfrapp, Phoenix, Stone Sour, Alice in Chains, the Deftones, Korn, Tool, Raemonn, Metallica and Angels and Airwaves. Most were damn good, others not so great, but it wasn't a bad way to spend the weekend, all things considered. I even have a hardcore rock injury! Well, sort of. Some drunk guy fell onto me (through the tent) when I was asleep, so I now have a cut just above my left eye. So not really that hardcore. A bit pathetic, really.
I love having no commitments and nowhere that I have to be :)
