Well, it’s been a while, hasn’t it? Apologies for the lack of posting, I’ve had some personal issues come up in my life, and I’ve not really had the motivation or enthusiasm to do anything creative. However, the spark has once again returned, and (hopefully) I’ll be posting more regularly. Although the fact I’ve got a ton of stuff to do, including moving to my own place, may hinder that slightly… but I’ll do my damn’ best to post!
Last weekend (not the one just gone, the one before), I ventured to Germany with a few friends, to attend Amphi Festival in Cologne, Germany. My first (and only) Amphi prior to this one was in 2015, when the organisers decided to relocate it to the Lanxess Arena, so this was my first true Amphi experience. It relocated back to it’s original venue, Tanzbrunnen last year, but I unfortunately missed that one, and there’s no way in hell I was gonna miss it this time round! I loved it in 2015, and at the time, couldn’t see why people were complaining about it. However, after experiencing my first proper Amphi, at the proper venue, it was clear to see why. Tanzbrunnen is an absolutely breathtaking venue, and perfect for the festival. The layout, the atmosphere, the feel of the place, it’s simply stunning!
The only downside was, that the second stage (in the theatre) got too crowded for when Frozen Plasma performed, so I sadly had to miss them. Other than that, it was pretty much a flawless weekend! Over the course of the weekend, we saw the likes of Eisfabrik, Chrom, Diorama, Die Krupps, Stahlmann, Hocico, Apoptygma Berzerk and the migthy Eisbrecher (who were definitely the highlight of my weekend!) I think we can all agree that that’s a pretty impressive line-up! Don’t take it from me though, I managed to capture some highlights from the festival! Check out the video from the EoE YouTube channel below, and don’t forget to like and subcribe, if you like what you see. Enjoy folks!
