You asked for a photo with my dreads in. I'm sorry to show a head not filled with dreads. I have to make more of them. The blurry photo below is shot with my phone in the bathroom but I hope you can see the back of the hair. The real hair is shoulder lenght.
This is my outfit for the thursday with the dreads. My fav Eva I Walla skirt a simple top, stripey tights and army boots (Invader). The short necklace is a raven claw grasping a marble. I look goofy on the other photos Johan took because he was making faces to make me laugh.
Most were dressed down at the festival, wich made my simple outfit look dressed up, wich is dissapointing, would love to see more cool outfits.
Arkona was a nice surprise. The singer was very energetic and dramatic with her gestures and a whole wolf skin wrapped around her. She demanded people to make a moshpit in front of the stage and then played russian folk songs in Ska pace.
Friday was a migraine day, horrible, so I wasn't able to arrive until 8 pm to see Amorphis that were great. I love their melancholy tunes.
For saturday I styled my hair in 50's style with Ali's brooch as a hairpin. Johan bought a top hat at one of the stalls and they took photos for their Facebook page on us wearing hats.Sabaton were great. They played a double set with all songs from Carolus Rex in Swedish with eight Carolus soldiers on stage. It was supposed to be a part from a play, but since the play based on the songs of that particular record were so popular they had to prolong it and therefore could only join with 8 soldiers from it and no acting. The second part was played with lots of fire and fireworks in the same style as every year.
One thing annoys me with this festival. There are so many different bands playing but I saw very few people from Falun (hometown). Those who were there all days was people from far away. Just one hour Sabaton played the normals entered with their baby carriages and kids and left directly after even if it was yet one more band to play. The good thing with this festival is that there haven't been a single fight or argue, everyone is happy and friendly.
