Nummirock 2004 24.-26.6.2004

By Poltsi

Nummirock has regained some of it's former glory and builds it's reputation year by year, not least this year when the promotors had succesfully contracted Morbid Angel to perfom on the festival. Unfortunatelly the weather gods had their other plans for the midsummer, but this didn't much affect the most devout metalheads.

The trip didn't begin that well, rained almost all the way and the visibility was almost zero on some places.

The other car had arrived a day earlier and they had done a good putting the pavilion together. It proved to be quite valuable since it rained most of the whole festival.

We paid a visit to Fabio at their usual camp-place, where quite a lot of people showed up.

Flash! I wonder what the pic Thomas took looked like.

People mingling. There was a rumour going that some bands would perform later in the evening and indeed there was. The camera took pics of things I have no recollection of so I leave them to speak for themselves.

Not all enjoyed Lordi, staying instead in the camp. The smoke was one prevalent item througout the whole festival, something that could be discerned several days (and baths) later.

Booze 20 euros, black marker 2 euros, getting a cool horisontal pussy with a matching set of beard and moustache painted on your face for drinking yourself unconcious, priceless.

Sunday morning came with the depressing knowledge that it will be another 363 or so days before next Nummirock.
