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

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.
2 Paper Arms
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:
4Elvis Jackson
Against the Gravity

I saw this guys like a million times already and they never cease to amaze, nuff said:
5Suicidal Tendencies

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:
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:
This song is probably my favourite:
10The Aggrolites
The Aggrolites

Reggae. Didn't get to see the whole show, but from what I heard they were great.
11The Casualties

They are ridicolous, but the perfect band to get the crowd going.
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.
