Mine was Belgrade Beer Fest, last night... Man, if you ever planned to come, don't.. Awful crowd, terrible beer. I hate to say this... (as a guy who likes beer biggrin.gif ).

Here's a picture, after it was moved to a bigger location:



Here is where it was before (Bogdan and I played on this one in 2006, he played in 2005 as well smile.gif )

I agree mate, and is awesome for you to play 4 years in a row, like a tradition smile.gif They always seem to make a fair out of any decent festival. Back in those days it was more "underground" and today lot more people come, with all kinds of sides, lot more commercial and uncontrolled..

I'm planning on going to Rock Im Park next year or Nova Rock, depending on the line-up of course, now the idea is that my 2009 experience at Rock Im Park was so awesome, that it's most definitely worth going a second time smile.gif

I didn't like the Belgrade Beer Fest much this year either. I saw Simple Minds and it was a great demonstration of how a good sound tech (they brought their own) can make a huge difference on the same PA/gear smile.gif

I live near Kalemegdan and old location for the festival was much much better and more intimate smile.gif
Now - it was just way too crowded and somehow it lost it's charm/spirit.

+ Idea of selling stuff at 4x price then in regular stores is just crazy smile.gif))

I'm really glad that I had a chance to play twice in the old location - those are some amazing memories.

Have you guys noticed how at some festivals, they make you buy stuff which is way more expensive than usual? In Romania it happens all the time sad.gif In Germany, for instance, in 2009 at Rock Im Park, you could buy a Becks beer for 3.3 euros and if you gathered 10 empty plastic beer recipients you received a free beer. Now that's smart - no one threw anything around!
