WITH FULL FORCE festival
July 4-6 2003
WFF is probably the festival that's the nearest to what the good Dynamo
fests were some 7 years ago :
Positive elements :
A great Mix of Metal, Punk and Hardcore with no Power Metal (in Germany,
it's unbelievable) and some extreme stuff
Your car aside your tent, which means you bring more stuff for a better
A good organisation in general, few cancellations and a good atmosphere
They care for ecology and try to have a cleaner place (not sure they
Negative elements :
Insane files to get in the campsite, after 10 hours on the road, we
spent over 3 hours on the right file, while the left one seems to go
3 times faster!!!
The next day, over 2 hours of file just to change your ticket into a
After those 2 long hours, you discover you have to buy a plastic bag
and if we didn't help a poor woman with her two daughters, she wouldn't
have received her bracelets… she couldn't pay for 3 bags! (even
if they refund you when bringing the bags full of dirt)
Almost no one speaks english and some security assholes had bad reactions
because we were from Belgium!
I wanted to point out that most german scream all the time, but due
to the stupid, racist assertion by that italian minister, I'll just
say they could all sing in a hardcore band! ?
THE REAL MCKENZIES : sober yet better than ever, huge!!!
SLAPSHOT' singer hitting his face with a large wood stick and bleeding
quite a lot ("mmh, another bullshit from me")
RYKER'S' singer kinda breaking his foot on stage
MESSIAH and their killer riffs
SLAYER playing 6 or 7 tracks from "Reign In Blood"
DIRTY WHITE SEAN doing a sick show even if I don't believe he really
ate his own shit!
CLAWFINGER, MADBALL, SICK OF IT ALL, RAGING SPEEDHORN, ENTOMBED, NAPALM
DEATH, TYPE O NEGATIVE, POISON IDEA, YOUTH OF TODAY, TURBO A.C.'s, ENTHRONED,
PRONG… all were amazing
I really hope the organisators will read this : by charging the entrance
fee of one extra €, just one, you would have enough money to pay
more guys to fix the files problems…
Now when all the file shit is over, you really feel good and enjoy some
serious organisation. And we got some great fireworx for the 10th anniversary!!!
