Going to big gigs and concerts is always really refreshing and also quite inspirational for those in bands. You get to hear some top quality bands with great sounds and you also see how it is done “professionally”. Not only that but you get to experience first hand why and how people get connected to certain types of music and bands. Plus you also learn how real bands communicate with fans while they are on stage and how they make their show an experience to remember.
And in a festival situation it is more likely that the band are playing to more people who are not their fans than their actual fans. It is a golden opportunity for those bands to capitalise on this attention and this is how presumably how these bands increase their following.
So as singer Atul went to Hellfest 2011 with another musician friend, we were truly in awe and inspired by those who do it for a living. We’ve learnt the importance of having a great sound on stage and making it a truly remarkable live event. We also learnt that you can’t impress *everyone* at the show but you make the most of the people you do in fact leave a mark on. And that it is pretty cool to travel outside your own country and interact with a different culture altogether.
And most of all…..you just have to have fun, isn’t that why we got into all of this in the first place, right? So here’s a video clip filmed by us of Mr. Big’s cover of The Who Song “Baba O’ Reily” at Hellfest 2011. Enjoy 🙂
