Time for my first Skambankt concert of this year’s festival season! And where else but at home, a twenty-minute walk from my place, and – the best part about it – in perfect summer weather without a single cloud in the sky? Trondheim rocks! <3

It was the first time this festival took place, and also the first time any event was arranged in that area. But all in all, things went smoothly (let’s just forget about the horrible drink queues during the first few hours …). With Volbeat and Iron Maiden as headliners, the festival was of course HUGE – 19.000 people a day. Of course they weren’t all there yet when Skambankt went on, but my guess would still be a five-digit number in the afternoon already. =:-o

This of course made this concert totally different from any of the indoor shows earlier this year. Such an impressive crowd! And it seemed like people were actually listening to the concert, even in the back (and believe me, that is NOT a given in Trondheim …). I was a bit concerned before the show that Skambankt would seem kinda “lost” on the huge Maiden stage, but no, they seemed right in place. And it was obvious that they enjoyed themselves up there. =:-)

A bit of technical trouble (but nothing bad), some small talk (“one thing about the nice and warm weather is that it gets too warm” – hysj da, there’s no such thing as “too warm”!!), and of course the plan to set the standard for the remainder of the festival weekend – with circle pits and a wall of death.

What I found really interesting was how differently some of the songs worked in a festival environment than at a club show! The most obvious was maybe Levende Legende – I love that song on the record, but at club shows it often seemed to kill the atmosphere a bit, because … not sure, maybe because people knew it a bit but not enough to sing along? Now at Trondheim Rocks, it was totally awesome. The perfect hymn for a summer night! =:-D

The full setlist:

  1. Anonyme hatere
  2. Skambankt
  3. Mantra
  4. Dynasti
  5. Levende legende
  6. I dette huset
  7. Vår bør
  8. Balladen om deg
  9. O dessverre
  10. Me sa nei
  11. Stormkast #1
