19.06.2011 Long day at the Paganfest 2011 at the Turbinenhalle Oberhausen
On 12.03.2011 many metal fans entered the holy halls of the Turbinenhalle Oberhausen to hail bands like Obscurity, Varg, Korpiklaani or Eluveitie. Also I was attending this extended version of the Paganfest tour which was increased that day by Obscurity, Heidevolk and Eluveitie who supported the already very good lineup of bands (Kivimetsän Druidi, Arafel, Varg, Moonsorrow, Unleashed and Korpiklaani).
The doors were opened already at 14:30 and at 15:00 the first guitar sounds were heard out of the speakers but there was a lot to come until late that night. Pictures and reviews I unfortunately can offer only for the first three bands Obscurity, Kivimetsän Druidi and Heidevolk. Arafel I missed and during Heidevolk I had to hand over my camera after a short talk to the security (I did not have an official permission to take picutres wich was also not given to me after clarification with the security, but I have to say kudos because of the way they handled it. They could have simply taken away my camera without any comment.). But I hope that anyhow I am able to give you some impressions of the Paganfest.
