Hultsfred the zombie festival

I’m back from the festival in Hultsfred, an annual event that died last year but got resurrected by the Scorpio necromancers to once more lay waste to the shores of lake Hulingen. Since Arvika festival was canceled a few weeks ago, this was one of the few places left in Sweden for festival concerts.

Apart from the old-timers Erasure, Morrissey and Prodigy, I enjoyed relatively new bands such as Shit Robot, Hurts, Cut Copy, White Lies, Egyptrixx and Tallest Man On Earth. Bob Log III was a fresh surprise, best described as speed country from Texas where the single band member wears a motorcycle helmet!

Erasure audience Happy audience watching Erasure.

Unfortunately there was quite a lot of rain, which severely thinned the audience. Liam Gallagher was more rude than ever, perhaps he didn’t approve of the weather. But I’m glad that the festival got resurrected and I hope it will live for several more years to come.
