PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now before I say anything on this, I should explain that I’ve never been to ANY of the European Festivals and when I see posters and lineups like this one, it almost makes me cry. I’ve not managed to get across the pond as they say as its just not logistically possible for me to wrangle the necessary finances for it but I digress. What I love about Festivals like this one is how on point they always seem to be. With bands like KISS announcing their “End Of The Road” World Tour (discussed earlier today on THIS LINK), I’m planning on seeing them whenever I can and they are only the tip of the iceberg of bands that I am interested in who are performing at this festival. That’s all I have for now but you readers can tell me what you think about the matter down in the comments section below. Please lets all discuss.
