Kavarna Rock Fest 2013!

We are back from Kavarna Rock Festival 2013. We went to see 4 concerts: Deep Purple, Thunder, Accept and Doro.

kavarna

As far as my boyfriend says it was first time that this festival took place in June instead of  of July… and it was for sure not the best idea. Was very very cold.

We were planning to stay one more day at Vama Veche and sleep in the tent, but with this weather it doesn’t make sense.

I have to say that I liked the best Accept concert… later Doro, Deep Purple and at the end Thunder. I didn’t really take so many photographs this time and those which I took are very bad quality… but my boyfriend gave me permission to post  his photos. I like the most the one he took at Accept concert. It was taken by phone, but it’s very very nice (click to see bigger image).

Megadeth Killing road

Last night in Bucharest at Arene Romanele began another Megadeth world tour – Killing road!! Great projections but unfortunately quite bad sound. I couldn’t hear Mustaine so well. From the new album they played only one song – Super Collider… but good news that they played this song first time in public yesterday! :) I was hoping for more new songs…

Metalheads by Jörg Brüggemann

I would like to introduce you to …

Metalheads by Jörg Brüggemann

Heavy metal is a phenomenon. Although this musical genre is still ridiculed by many, it is currently more popular and successful around the world than at its supposed peak in the 1980s. Today, so-called metalheads can be found worldwide. No matter who they are or where they come from, they are united by heavy metal across borders, generations, genders, religions, and social classes. The photographes have been taken in Argentina, Austria, Brazil, Egypt, Germany, Indonesia, Malaysia, Switzerland and the USA. The accompanying book was published by Gestalten Verlag. You can buy it here.

and here is Spodek where Metalmania was taking place for a long time… I grow up in the same city, I had my home around 2km away from this place… and I had no idea about that… hmm… how ignorant I was?

Atmosphere unfortunately was not so good as during concerts and festivals in Romania or Bulgaria… a few drunk people were looking for a scandal… but anyway was nice.. it was first and last concert of JP which I saw…

The best in the festivals in Bulgaria is the atmosphere… there are all families coming to enjoy the music, there are always a lot of kids… another thing is that people keep distance… even when there is crowd people leave some space which is very nice…

MOTLEY CRUE

It was not allowed to take photos at Motley Crue concert… here is one of photos I took with my phone… I don’t even want to imagine how good photos I could take with normal camera…
Motley Crue concert was the best show I have seen live until now… very very professional… and we were just next to the stage.

The video I did at the concert. It’s very bad quality of the sound, so I advice to put speakers down…

hmm… yes, it was fun until I got home and I put things (my brand new shoes and my beloved t-shirt) in water with soup… and realized it will not go away so easy… or .. it will never go away… I have to say that I got pissed off big time… and my boyfriend said “I did some kind of circus”…

MOTORHEAD

It was my first Motorhead concert… next one was in London.. and let’s hope I will see more.. This one in Bucharest was in my opinion much better (even Lemmy moved a bit more in London… in Bucharest was standing all the time in one place), I liked setlist much more (started with Bomber) than the one they had in London…. and we were in front… in London we had “sitting places” on the balcony…

GUNS’N’ROSES

Stylish Axl Rose (was changing hats, t-shirts and jackets every two songs)… still dancing well… same as in 90′(in video Welcome to the Jungle)… just taste for girls got worst a little bit I think… no more beautiful and looking smart girls (like from old videos with Stephanie Seymour)… now… just some random girls in videos screened on the stage…

I found on youtube one video from this concert…

Last Year’s Concerts… Kavarna Rock Festival

Kavarna is very special place on Bulgarian map. It’s a small town, quite close to Romanian border. Every year – since 2006- there is rock/metal festival at Kavarna Statium.

The city is also known from it’s murals on the buildings.

I got photo accreditation for this festival but.. yes.. BUT… it’s not always so easy and nice as it should be. Shooting was limited to first 3 songs… later photographers were asked to LEAVE equipment in some special room, so they can not shoot any photographs inside to crowd…
Only “crowd” photos were allowed during concerts of Bulgarian bands… where… was no crowd at all…
In this case, I decided to leave my camera in the hotel room and just pay for my freedom… I just got ticket and shoot with mobile phone and small Nikon camera…

Last Year’s Concerts… New Model Army

Skipping Rezident Ex concert at Arenele Romane in Bucharest, Romania on 21st September … I am not so familiar with this band and I do not understand lyrics, I don’t speak Romanian.. also I think it was too cold to make concert outside (I got a bit ill)…

so.. next concert was…

NEW MODEL ARMY at Peninsula Festival at Targu Mures in Romania on 23rd of August 2012.

I need to search for a ticket for Peninsula. I do not know where did I lose it… but there are few more, finally better quality images from this festival.

We went there only for New Model Army…

New Model Army are an English post-punk/alternative rock band who formed in Bradford, West Yorkshire in 1980.

I am listening to this band since around 10 years and it was always my dream to see them live! I think they are not so popular.. it was not so crowded at their concert… but concert was amazing…
