It‘s my 4th time at the festival and logistics and music are awesome as always. Kinda like the most well organized festival I‘ve ever been to. Only downside is the food. It‘s overpriced, but hey, we‘re at a festival. So I don‘t complain about that....More

Good organisation, top bands, enough space for this many people, clean toilet facilities, everything is just fine. The backside is that it's really cold during the night, the sound could be better (singers are hard to hear sometimes), the staff can't answer some important questions...More

超華麗的螢幕、上了年紀卻仍然十分熱血的Rose大叔活蹦亂跳效果十足。從開場Welcome to the Jungle, 名曲Sweet Child O’mine, Knockin’ on Heaven’s door接連登場。到最終的安可曲,滿佈天際散落的紅紙片為三天的重金轟炸畫下最完美的句點。

The last couple of years there are two main stages (outdoor), one medium stage (indoor) and 2 small stages (1 outdoor and 1 indoor). Usually there are two or three bands playing at the same time, so you should be able to find something which...More
