Just bought my ticket :)

I'll be at Oya Festival (Oslo) for the 7th August, then an easy 3hr train ride to Way Out West (Gothenburg) for the 9th August.

Anyone else going!?

Arrived in Göteborg via train just now, in the most expensive hotel I've ever stayed in 😬

Looks like a nice city though.
I've gotta say I loved the atmosphere in Norway so if Sweden is similar I'm looking forward to it :)

That means: no I**A furniture, right? 😄👌🏻

de musique; de là, les mystagogies hallucinantes.

The buildings look nice, @word_on_a_wing - a little more classical than Federation Square! ;)

Are you trying that half-rotten Scandinavian herring specialty?

Have fun at the concert!  :)

A quick reflection on tonight's show:

It was great, and I certainly don't want any of my following views to throw that fact into question. The sound was great, and they played to perfection.

For the festival itself, as an audience member I didn't 'gel' with the atmosphere as much here.  Oslo felt like a creative, laid back crowd. Here in Göteborg it seemed like most people seemed to be 20-something, and looked like they were ready to hit the clubs (they certainly liked the pop hits best in the setlist). Perhaps the schedule of musicians had something to do with the type of crowd, as there was predominantly popular dance sort of music throughout the day.
The Cure were great, which I don't need to discuss further given the livestream happened right? So you can see for yourselves.  (Hopefully someone will upload onto YT I'd love to watch it back). Again the highlights for me were FTEOTDGS through to Disintegration. (I would have paid and queued up just to see that portion alone.) I was a bit disappointed the setlist was shorter, and particularly that Primary and 39 weren't played.

That's my final show for now as my European holiday is coming to an end. I hope they return to Australia so I see them again :)

Well I hope you enjoyed your trip and it was worth the effort after all! :)
Can't you see I try? Swimming the same deep water as you is hard...

Sure was Ulrich :)
These shows were pretty close to where I was (Paris) so it was pretty easy to add these shows in  (travelling between countries here in Europe is similar in distance/time to travelling between cities in Australia!)
Plus I got to see Norway and Sweden for the first time :)

I hope you got to try Kavli (AKA Finn Crisp), which is a wonderful Scandinavian sourdough rye crispbread, so much better than Ryvita!  It's much more expensive over here.  Have a safe trip back! :)
