West Side Rockfest 2013 at Turbinenhalle Oberhausen with amazing performances by NOFX, Caliban, Millencolin, Skindred, Emil Bulls, Jello Biafra, Betontod, Dead by April and The Idiots.
Planned as an Open Air festival but moved indoors due to bureaucracy kerfuffle this years 'West Side Rockfest' was still going strong. With high class acts from around the world and with a headliner like NoFX nothing else was expected.
I was really happy to get a positive response from the organizer that I would be accredited and oh boi it did not disappoint - the atmosphere at events of such size is amazing, and even though it got hectic from time to time everybody was friendly but knew exactly what he or she had to do. For once working with pros, such a nice thing.
I am eagerly looking forward to more such events as this one showed me that this is what I want to do more often.
