    Fri 16 Jul – Zwarte Cross

    So, I bought a one day ticket to the Zwarte Cross festival at Lichtenvoorde, Netherlands, expecting that I actually could visit ONE DAY. It didn't say anywhere on my ticket when I was expected to show up so we decided to get there early to catch local heroes Normaal. Luckily we had problems finding the place so we arrived around 5 pm instead of 4. cause when we showed up we noticed that one day ticket holders couldn't enter the venue until after Normaal. Pretty much bullshit if you ask me? To this day I haven't found a reason for the organisation to do this. I think they're only missing revenue but whatever. 6pm became 6:20 before we could finally walk onto the festival area and have our first drinks (non alcoholic drinks were free for me, which was a good initiative as I had to drive :D). We saw 3 metal bands on the Aardschok stage which all gave very decent performances, especially The Devil's Blood were so good that we actually watched their full set in favour of the start of Volbeat. …
