Soulfieldswave Festival, Kortrijk, Blegium, 25/11/2017 – review

Soulfieldswave Festival, Kortrijk, Blegium, 25/11/2017 – review

  Kortrijk is a pretty and cosy town in the Flemish province of West Flanders in Belgium, well connected to Brussels and Gent with the fast train. Much of the city’s medieval architecture remained intact and is remarkably well preserved and restored. The city centre is one of the largest car-free areas in Belgium, which makes this pretty town a great place to enjoy relaxing strolls in the calm and quiet environment. The béguinage, as…

OMD’s 2017 tour: Guildford performance at G Live, 11. November 2017

OMD’s 2017 tour: Guildford performance at G Live, 11. November 2017

  Saturday, 11 November 2017, was a great day to visit Guildford’s G Live concert venue. OMD paid a visit to the heart of Surrey to perform one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. The night started at 8 PM with the supporting act Tiny Magnetic Pets. The trio warmed up the audience with synth pop/electropop vibrant and dancy numbers. Although I wasn’t familiar with the band’s opus, I quite enjoyed the show. The…

The Birthday Massacre, Lesbian Bed Death and Pythia @ Sub 89, Reading 1st November 2017 – review

  Enigmatic Canadian’s The Birthday Massacre recently toured the UK with their 8 date Under Your Spell tour. They covered most of the UK including shows in London, Whitby Goth Weekend and, more unusually, Sub89 in the town of Reading. The supporting acts of the evening were Lesbian Bed Death and Pythia. Symphonic metallers Pythia kicked off the show. As expected for a band who have been in existence for a decade, they have a…

Gary Numan at Brighton Dome Concert Hall, 16.10.2017 – review

Gary Numan at Brighton Dome Concert Hall, 16.10.2017  – review

  It was Monday morning, after our walk along the promenade at Brighton beach. There were many seagulls flying on the bright blue sky when suddenly a sandy-coloured fog materialised as a filter in front of the sun. The temperature changed as the sun became a clear red dot that we observed without any eye-protection. I guess that by then Gary Numan’s tour busses had to have arrived at the Brighton Dome, the venue for…

Front Line Assembly @ O2 Academy Islington, London show review

Front Line Assembly @ O2 Academy Islington, London show review

  London was one of the cities on the Front Line Assembly European tour. This 24 August I had the opportunity to see FLA for the fourth time and, based on my previous experience, I expected a brilliant show. I came a bit early, listened a bit to the sound check and I was lucky to stumble upon Bill and his long time friend Gary Levermore who both found a few moments to talk to…

The Kills live show at Tvornica Kulture, Zagreb, Croatia, 19 August 2017 – review

  This summer I was in Zagreb just at the right time. On the last day of my holidays The Kills played at the venue Tvornica kulture in the Croatian capital. I had the opportunity to see Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince on stage, and it was my first live encounter with the band. I arrived just a few minutes after Lovely Quinces opened the evening. Although I didn’t enter the main hall to see…

Amphi festival, Koln, Germany, 22/23 July 2017 – review

Amphi festival, Koln, Germany, 22/23 July 2017 – review

  The 13th edition of one of the finest festivals in Europe, Amphi Festival, took place on the 22nd and 23rd July this year. The organizer provided one more unforgettable Amphi experience, this time with several upgrades and improvements. The ship (Orbit stage) was unfortunately located on the other side of the river Rhine due to the low water level. Despite the fact you could have used the shuttle bus, it was not easy to…

Review concert Gary Numan: Pioneer Of British Electronic Music at Exhibition Centre Liverpool 27-07-2017

Review concert Gary Numan: Pioneer Of British Electronic Music at Exhibition Centre Liverpool 27-07-2017

    If you ask me, I would guess that tonight, when Gary Numan was presenting his new songs for the very first time, he was just as eager to perform them as the fans were wanting to hear them. The first time is always special, isn’t it? The pledge campaign which has accompanied the making of the new album had already raised the veil a little bit, just like the post-apocalyptic video for the…

Interview with Johan van Mulken, the man behind the Downhill festival

Interview with Johan van Mulken, the man behind the Downhill festival

  According to Johan van Mulken, the qualities which are crucial to organise a festival like the Downhill festival are being stubborn and passionate, having many many years of experience and a large network, being ready to take a risk, having some self-confidence, and being capable of relying on the professional team of more or less 10 persons that he usually gathers. Johan started the Downhill festival out of frustration in 2004, when there were…

26th Wave-Gotik-Treffen; Leipzig, Germany, 2-5 June 2017 – festival review

  Wave Gotik Treffen is undoubtedly the largest, as well as one of the oldest, Goth festivals in the world. We visited Leipzig, Germany, to participate in its 26th incarnation from 2nd to 5th June 2017. One of the key features of WGT, the one that makes it so different from the other festivals, is that it is a citywide event where concerts, exhibitions and various other events happen in all parts of the city,…
