I'm not a big fan of the festivals, too many people for my taste, but I love to see the band in front of so many people and on a big stage ... it's fantastic. The lights and the canvas cover WAR OF KINGS are really good, show us a great rock band! Thank you for the videos and photos dear users

I wasn't there either. And yes it felt strange to sit at home while Europe was playing in my homeland. Two of my friends did go and told me that Europe played fine. Not a mega fantastic gig but plain solid. A lot of people thought they were one of the highlights and surprises of the day. Mainly because those people thought that Europe is still that 80's band relying on their hits. And that is the big advantage of Europe playing festivals. To spread the word and let people know they're still relevant and kicking ass nowadays!

Was there. It is a nice festival that Bospop thing. Danko Jones was great, Dream Theater sound was terrible and Realized they are actually not a festival band, Anathema also fantastic and then Europe...great show. Joey's confidence and swagger was striking, although the sexist act with the mike is a bit ... Was all the way at the front where the spirits were high, don't know at the the back, believe i heared Joey say at one moment " you guys look bored?!". They did a great show and indeed i felt they were one of the highlights. Firebox came out massive, re-discovered that song!
Addition to the setlist: they played Sign of the Times too. Love that song. Too bad they had to delete the Wings gems from this shortened festival gig, would have loved to hear Wasted Time live. Also missed the meet and greet by 10 minutes, did not know they were doing that and was enjoying mad Danko at the time. Damn.
Will miss them in Enschede, will move to Ivory Coast (which they will definetely never play i guess...), can't believe these guys are playing my hometown and I wont be there..
