MIDNATTSOL (NOR/GER) 13.00 - 13.30 MS
No midnight sun, a bright day it was when this norwegian/german team entered the stage to start off. Though it was quite early that day neither band nor fans seemed to be in a bad mood. The female lead vocalist, dressed up all in white, was happy and grateful to be part of her “favourite open air festival”. The drummer turned out to be the moving power behind the band banging through the entire set. The band found an exciting way to build up power by putting in quiet passages just to let it go again with driving mid tempo parts. One of the guitarists proved to have a good taste by using a Dimebag Darrell guitar. A well done entrée to the festival with an appealing band finishing their set with a song based on an Edward Grieg track.
