Punk Rock Holiday

So I went to this punk rock festival in Tolmin, Slovenia, cause it's very near me and the line-up was pretty good. Didn't get to see as many bands as I wanted to because of bad weather and my lazy friends getting stoned all the time, but it was cool. Here's some of the stuff I saw:
1Kevlar Bikini
Explodisiac


Rockabillycore? Manly music, kind of reminds me of early Volbeat, but with hardcore instead of metal influences: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XxBdS_3IteU They were energetic live, but the crowd was literally non-existent, so it was hard to enjoy.
2 Paper Arms
The Smoke Will Clear


Solid, but a bit underwhelming, as is their music imo. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQ2UXFW-RqY
3Mute
Thunderblast


Catchy, technical and really fucking fast all at the same time; melodic hardcore at it's best. Flawless performance. This song has been stuck in my head for months, you should check out their whole last album though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rV5uq_tAas
4Elvis Jackson
Against the Gravity


I saw this guys like a million times already and they never cease to amaze, nuff said: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTK3X_PDw74 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mjpkgAD1KlE
5Suicidal Tendencies
13


Probably the most m/ band in the line-up. The rythm section was on fire and everyone went crazy as fuck.
6The Mahones
Black Irish


You can't really go wrong live with celtic punk, but I saw Flogging Molly last year, so they obviously paled in comparison.
7Tea Break
Second Hand Hero


The crowd was horrible and the band looked really dissapointed. Their music is pretty standard too, for fans of newer Rise Against. This song is pretty good though I guess: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYTv8UsPZrc
8The Menzingers
On the Impossible Past


Curiously enough the band I staged-dived the most too, probably cause I was really drunk that day.
9Red Five Point Star
Worst Case Scenario


Didn't get to see these them cause I was just too wasted. My friend keep blasting them throughout the day and I should by all means hate them, but I've grown to really like them, idk how I never heard of them before. Some of the best ska I ever heard, check this out, such a great album: http://kaparecords.bandcamp.com/album/worst-case-scenario This song is probably my favourite: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roveNAlxbwQ
10The Aggrolites
The Aggrolites


Reggae. Didn't get to see the whole show, but from what I heard they were great. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m2nlzwXUttY
11The Casualties
Resistance


They are ridicolous, but the perfect band to get the crowd going.
12Propagandhi
Failed States


Arguably the most progressive band on the bill and their performance was flawless as well. But they are one of those rare punk bands that I enjoy more on their records. Also, the stage divers were realy suicidal during this show, took a real beating on me as they seemed to target me on purpose.
