Rock am Ring 2013 – Highlights Part 1

Posted on Sunday, June 16th, 2013 at 11:29 PM

Whoop whoop I’m back! With music!

For the 7th (wtf!) year now I followed the Rock am Ring festival via livestreams and TV. Saw some amazing sets by my favourite bands and discovered some new ones, so here’s part one of my highlights.

Stereophonics
They definitely didn’t get the slot they deserved, playing the Alternastage at 6 pm – it should’ve either been the Centerstage around that time or way later in the dark on the Alternastage. But they obviously sounded great as always, apart from the hits I really liked “Catacomb” from the new album (can’t find it on youtube :( )

Biffy Clyro


The crowd loved Biffy and I think Biffy loved the crowd :D Seems like they had a real connection – how funny was Simon’s “Ziehst du mich durch den Kakao?” ? :D (awesome German skills!) They’re the perfect festival band.

Phoenix


They only showed a few songs on TV when Phoenix played the festival in 2009, so it was great to see their full set this year :) Perfect atmosphere during the sunset! (Also, how cute is it when he counts in the songs in French? :D)

The Killers


They headlined the festival in 2009, this year they “only” headlined the Alternastage, but I think I liked this set even more. Brandon and the whole band have always come across quite reserved and serious to me, and here he was smiling so much the entire time, I really loved that. That they’re a brilliant live band is no secret and this concert reminded me that I really need to see them someday.
