Rock am Ring 2013 – Highlights Part 2

Posted on Monday, June 24th, 2013 at 12:32 AM

As I wrote in the first part, I discovered some new bands and artists at this years Rock am Ring festival:

Jake Bugg

I already knew him before since he toured with Snow Patrol and Noel Gallagher last year but I’d yet to hear more than a few songs, so fortunately his full set was shown in the livestream. So much talent for a 19 year old! Didn’t know he could play those guitar solos.

Imagine Dragons

So I’ll admit I’ve been living under a rock these last few months… I’ve never heard of these guys until I saw them as the first band in this years livestream. But I loved them instantly – catchy songs, lyrics I can relate to, lots of energy and a singer who seemed completely blown away at the response his band got from the crowd :D cute. I also love all the percussion elements, nice to see (and hear) them all drumming together.


…I know, it’s getting embarrassing now.. I’ve read their name before ’cause they opened for Muse on some of their shows, but never heard any songs until their set at Rock am Ring. I was surprised how many people there welcomed them with signs and t-shirts! Told you I’ve been missing a lot of stuff, but better late than never, right?
My first thought was “Man, he totally looks like Ted Mosby” :D But it didn’t take long until they had me captivated. I love Dans voice, the groove of their songs, the electronic feel to them.. and again, lots of percussion by all band members, awesome.
