|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:
Rockabillycore? Manly music, kind of reminds me of early Volbeat, but with hardcore instead of metal influences:
They were energetic live, but the crowd was literally non-existent, so it was hard to enjoy.

The Smoke Will Clear
Solid, but a bit underwhelming, as is their music imo.
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:
Against the Gravity
I saw this guys like a million times already and they never cease to amaze, nuff said:
Probably the most m/ band in the line-up. The rythm section was on fire and everyone went crazy as fuck.
You can't really go wrong live with celtic punk, but I saw Flogging Molly last year, so they obviously paled in comparison.
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:
On the Impossible Past
Curiously enough the band I staged-dived the most too, probably cause I was really drunk that day.

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:
This song is probably my favourite:
Reggae. Didn't get to see the whole show, but from what I heard they were great.
They are ridicolous, but the perfect band to get the crowd going.
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.
