With Full Force

The With Full Force festival was my next one! It's a three-day festival in Roitzschjora near Leipzig with a musical range from punk, rock, hardcore right up to death metal and everything lying inbetween. Since this is my favorite festival in germany and me going there kinda every year - I have been really looking forward to it and I've been so happy when I received the photo-accreditation. The festival was from the 29th June to the 1st of July 2012 and I went there on thursday with a bunch of my friends and we camped there till sunday. The weather was freaky and I nearly collapsed because of the heat just to be nearly strucked by lightning on saturday night (the funny part is: Heavenshallburn played at the time when the storm began xD the not so funny part is: many people were hurt because of a lightning strike). I didn't take as much portraits as I would've liked to but at the end of the day it was ok and I had so much fun. All told it was an awesome and eventful weekend :D

And the obligatory visitor's portrait ;)

Even before the Reload Festival I have been at the Schumannfest. It's a festival for classical music in Düsseldorf and it's dedicated to Robert Schumann (hence the name ;)). Unlike most of the other festivals, the Schumannfest wasn't Open Air - it took place in various buildings in Düsseldorf like the Tonhalle. I went there on the 29th and 30th May and I have been really exited because I have been afraid that most of the visitors wouldn't participate in my project. But I was wrong. There were so many friendly and open-minded people who were willingly taking part and another surprise was, that there were so many young people. I'm very glad that I had the chance to photograph this festival because now I got a lot of various portraits of interesting people.
And of course - one of the portraits:

Reload Festival

The Reload Festival in Sulingen (somewhere "near" Bremen) was my next festival! The music there is a Mix of Rock, Alternative, Punk, Metal and Hardcore. Since I had a three-hour drive, I decided to camp there all three days from the 15th to 17th July. It must have looked hilarious - me on my moped with a huge bag on my carrier and an enormous backpack on my back. It's a miracle that I got there in one piece xD and I think I made quite a few people laugh xDD
I took a lot of photos for my project and it was great to meet so many nice people and to make new friends. This festival was one of the best I've ever been to. Yes, it's a small one but it had a very familiar atmosphere, everyone was having fun and everybody was friendly and even though I went there all on my own - I never felt that way and it took like 5 seconds to make new friends :D the line-up was phenomenal and what can I say - I saw my favourite band of all time H2O and Slash live - my personal guitar hero!
And one of my portraits:

Tomorrow I am visiting the Weinturm Open Air in Bad Windsheim (my home town) and I'm really looking forward to it :D

Stay tuned ;) Next post will be about the Schumann Fest!

Ruhrpott Rodeo

The Ruhrpott Rodeo is a punk festival near Hünxe in NRW and the second festival I visited. I have to say - that one was awesome! I drove there both days (saturday and sunday) but didn't camp because I only had a one hour drive. The weather was perfect for festivals (bad for photographers) and much too hot for me xD but I met a lot of really nice and interesting people and besides a whole bunch of portraits and other photos - I got a big sunburn!
