Running with the Big Dogs
We are back in Trondheim, Norway after an amazing experience at Wacken Open Air 2011, and it’s time to reflect on all the impressions we had. Ida has put it all very well into her own words, read below:
We’ve gotten back from the Wacken Open Air, still smiling when thinking about the gig, and I just wanted to share a few of my thoughts on this very special event:
In 2001 I went to my first Wacken Open Air. I watched a whole lot of amazing and unforgettable bands (several of whom I have been a big fan of ever since) and could not believe the enormous dimension of the festival, nor the level of quality that all the bands delivered!! I remember thinking; “Holy shit!! This must be the ultimate live-experience!! I wish it could be me up there…” And then, the 6th of august 2011, I could call out from the W.E.T.-stage “Hello Wacken! We are Triosphere!” It felt unbelievable…
We arrived to the festival on Thursday, and I could feel the first butterflies in my stomach the second I saw the first festival-signs on the way in to the artist check-point. We had a great time watching awesome bands and meeting friends from all around the world, and then suddenly it was Saturday morning and 10 minutes to showtime! When our intro started rolling, I heard a huge crowd clapping, and I just wanted to laugh out loud when I ran out on stage and saw the response and the size of the crowd! The rest of the gig was just unbelievable… We LOVED every minute of it, and I thank all of you who came and watched our show, whether it was intentionally or you just randomly came there, and made it every bit as big live-experience as I imagined it must be back in 2001!!
I’ll be smiling for a very long time…
