…..day 1.

 

 

I didn’t know directions from the back parking lot of Taqueria Los Comales (convenient free parking) to where I was going, but I wandered in the general direction from which I could hear the low, rumbling sound of metal pulsing ominously through the warm summer air and eventually ended up at my destination: Toyota Park where the 2nd annual Chicago Open Air Festival was taking place.

Around the festival, you could find a lot of unique experiences such as craft vendors, the Heavy Tiki Bar, the Headbangers Bier Hall, meet and greets with artists, and a wide range of unique and delicious food like grilled cheeses, pulled pork barbeque, burrito bowls, farm to table vegetarian options, donuts, pizza… this festival had by far the best food options I have ever seen at an event like this.

Nummirock is a midsummer metal festival in Kauhajoki in Western Finland. It’s about 170km northwest from Tampere and 60km southwest from Seinäjoki. Basically it’s in middle of nowhere. It’s a festival that has become a real tradition for many hardcore camping metalheads, and I think I understand why. Campsites are huge and loaded with tents, cars, huts and of course metalheads, some of them (well actually most of them) being drunk. There’s a great atmosphere among the campers and nothing can ruin the party. And when I say “nothing”, I really mean it. Not even a temperature below 0˚ or rain of hailstones. This is what I’d call a great spirit of heavy metal. Continue reading FESTIVAL REVIEW: Nummirock, Kauhajoki Finland 19. – 21.6.2014
