This may sound kinda stupid but I was watching a live festival, i think it was metallica playing in pinkpop and they didn't have any amps on stage

I know this sounds really idiotic and some guy is gonna be sat there thinking WTF?!

but where are the amps? i mean are they mic'd backstage or somet?

Backstage?

This is a mind-boggling question.

And that was sarcasm.



you, my friend, are pure genius.

I like guitars, running, and math.

(Also, they were there you probably just didn't see them. Amps HAD to be there)

They were obviously hidden some how.

When you go see a Maiden gig you never see amps either because that would get in the way of Bruces fun park the stage set.

Under the stage? Maybe everyone was just really quiet and they played their electric guitars acoustically. I would go with the second. It seems more logical.

I see a lot of bands using rack gear which is usually offstage near the sound guy. idk, I saw Metallica on Saturday and they had amps.
