So I went to the Pinkpop festival yesterday and it was just too awesome. I've seen Rage Against The Machine, Serj Tankian, Cavalera Conspiracy, Fiction Plane and some other bands live. Pictures are on www.pinkpop.nl for those interested

Has anyone from UG been at Pinkpop too?


Oh and before anyone asks, "pink" is derived from the dutch word pinksteren, which is a minor religious holiday (traditionally, the festival is held in that time)

Pinkpop in fact is a "big thing" This year the major acts were Metallica, Foo Fighters, Kaiser Chiefs and Rage Against The Machine. Unfortunately, I could only get hold of a day ticket instead of a weekend ticket Otherwise, I would have seen them all.

Yep I've been there. One day though.
I've seen Flogging Molly, Incubus, Porcupine Tree and last but not least Metallica. Porcupine Tree is my band, so I enjoyed that one very much. And wow Metallica even though the commercial remarks here and there what a great show, with fireworks and all . All the people gathers and watched Metallica rock, there was so much energy there incredible. I had fun, ow yeah!

I've just got back to Scotland from the festival. Was a good time, but I must say I prefer the crowds at British festivals.

Got really badly sunburnt yesterday! And it was about a 2 mile walk to C camp... so I just had to bear it. I now have a complexion similar to Dr. Zoidberg...

Rage were the best band of the weekend for me, followed by Porcupine Tree then Metallica. Woo!

I would have loved to have seen Porcupine Tree there. Saw them last November, and they're a cracking live band.

And RATM??! I envy you so much right now

Muhaha I went there for all three days... Seen flogging molly, metallica, bad religion, Cavalera Conspiracy, Foo Fighters, the Hives, QUOTSA and of course the Rage.

It was so awesome... massive pits at RATM and flogging molly...
And during Bad religion someone made a big brown turd in the pit
Kaas!

I went all three days. Was fricken amazing! Especially Porcupine Tree and Rage of Course. I was worried when they came on in the Guantanemo suits that they would just stand there for their whole set (Like they did with the naked gaffa tape) but it was soooo good. I hated the long walk back to Campsite C though. Was about 45 mins!

That walk was a killer. Ugh.

And yeah, I didn't think much of most of the crowd.

Great bands, though! Rage made the whole thing worthwhile.
#22
I went 3 days, and the best gig was seriously Eagles of Death Metal, it was so much fun! The singer was awesome just like the whole band. I think that was the best of the weekend.

I was really sad when I found out they had a performance yesterday in Amsterdam and I really wanted to go but I was exhausted from Pinkpop .
I just need about $3.50
