Expect a huge and friggin long post about Slottsfjell festival I attended last month. I can’t believe it has been a month since the festival, damn, and school is around the corner. Anyways, the results of bringing three disposable cameras to the festival arrived just in right time because around this time last month, I was sitting on the grass and enjoying the sunbeam with music in the background. And please excuse for my poor photographer skills.
I really miss the atmosphere – it was so, so good. People were walking around and so open and damn, I met a lot of Arctic Monkeys fans! Haha, I knew wearing an arctic monkeys band t-shirt was a good idea. Norwegian people are usually quiet and shut but at festivals, BAM, they are free and the social door is open. That’s why I love festivals so much, the atmosphere is fucking marvelous.
Razika performed there and was first up for my “to watch” list. I had already seen them once before, but they respelled my love for them again. After few minutes with Razika I had to run to the next scene to catch a good standing before Two Door Cinema Club was starting, and I got almost the first row! I guess Two Door Cinema Club was probably the best of it all, they are so good at live. Rest of the night consisted of jumping around and dancing to Crystal Castles and watching Røyksopp from someone shoulders.
Hmm, what did I do during the Friday? Oh , it rained that day, A LOT. But thank god, I was prepared with brining my funny rubber boots and a rain poncho.
MHOO, Madcon, Katy B, Biffy Clyro, and Mr Orkester were on the set list. During the Madcon we and my friends were asked to get photographed and the next thing I knew, I was texted by Simen that I was on the local newspaper next day in my hometown, Larvik Hmm, I'm celebretity now
Saturday, the last day of the festival, was a perfect day to end the festival – the weather turned nice and Kaizers Orchestra was the headliner. I saw them in April, but this time it was different. So much better than last time, even though the concert lasted shorter but this one was so perfect in many ways. Except being squeezed in the crowd but that is just part of the fun. I managed to squeeze some time for Niki and the Dove before rushing to Datarock. I wished I had some more pictures from that day, but sadly I ran out of disposable camera or neither did I bring along my DSLR.
One to things I really love about festivals, except for the feeling you get, is the food. Oh food, you are like a good drug to me <3. I didn’t realize they had a Ben&Jerry stand there before the very last day at Slottsfjell, so on the hottest day in July, I had one scoop of the delightful chocolate fudge brownie and my newest favorite, Fairly nuts.
Throughout the whole Slottsfjell I had a blast time, probably the biggest happening of this year so far. I have gained so many memories and experienced in so little time, and learned what i shall bring along and not. So in other words, I'm definitely going to attend the next year’s one, and this time, they will have their 10th anniversary as a festival. Damn, that is going to be super duper good one and this time, I will bring more disposable cameras.
