Kuopiorock 2016 thumbOk, this year I was shooting photos at Kuopio Rock mainly on black & white format. I really like how these photos turn out to be. I expecially like to see some dirt and grain on b6w band photos. Click on the picture to go straight to picture gallery. Kuopio Rock Festival was great as always. I had a blast, and think other people had great time too :)

John Smith – Rock Festival 2016

john_smith-thumbJohn Smith Rock Festival was held for the first time ever in summer 2016 at Laukaa, middle Finland. Festival area was built to the beautiful lakeside park next to the Peurunka Spa Hotel area with its restaurants and indoor arena. It was two day festival Friday to Saturday. “Backround: young man had a dream – A dream to bring a Rocking good event for Rocking good music in the small town of Laukaa! Not a single compromise with the bands just to fill up the days. He visualized an event with the top line Rock performers that he had followed and listened. The ones that he would be ready ”To die for” on an open air gig in the middle of Finnish summertime. There are a lot of events to choose from nowadays, but he wanted to arrange one – Almost at any cost – to which he would really like to buy a ticket myself.” I Agree everything he said :D Here are highlight pictures from Friday

Within Temptation – Kotkan Meripäivät 2015

Within-Temptation-Sharon-den-Adel
* Within Temptation is a Dutch symphonic metal band founded in 1996 by vocalist Sharon den Adel and guitarist Robert Westerholt.[1] They have always been classified by critics as gothic metal or rock, although the “gothic” influence varies with each album. This band is one of my favourites, so I was very happy to see them playing live for the first time. *Wikipedia
