Freak Valley Festival Vol. 5
AWO Gelaende, Netphen-Deuz, Germany
May - 28 - 2016
Day # 3 - Act # 10 (app. 21:50 -> 23:00)
A BLUESHACKS, MIRO, RACKHIR, LORD DIE (# 119) and SPACEBANDIT taping cooperation
Zoom H2 internal mics (@ WAV 16/44) -> MemoryCard -> HD -> Audacity (edit/remaster) -> WAV 16/44 -> TLH8 -> FLAC -> DIME -> YOUR EARS AND MIND...so far away in stoner space...
Recorded by dear LORD DIE close to the stage edge almost dead center. Very fine recording (for internal mics), a few chatters here and there, but nothing too disturbing. As we
are used from the LORD, some really good pics are included as well...
FREAK VALLEY FESTIVAL 2016:
Admission fee: 69 Euros in advance
Attendence: 2500 people from all over the world. Sold out since November 2015
Catering: A variety of food booths, breakfast tent on the campground (which was 3 kms UP away), prices slightly above last year. A slice of Pizza at 2.50, other food more expensive.
Some beer booths, a cocktail bar and - to my personal surprise - a small winery slot with "Met" (which I only discovered the last evening, so no chance to get full advantage of it).
Security: Very low, very mellow. Almost no controls at the gate, if you didn't try to roll a barrel of alcolhol into it...
Loos: Acceptable quality both on the festival and on the campground. This is something that makes a difference, if you're staying for three nights...
Weather conditions: Exceptional fine on thursday, some rain during the night, fine again on friday as well as the saturday until 19:45 (probably) when a massive rainfall (no, it was
buckets of rain washing over you) for 90+ minutes went down. Nice for the plants to be removed from those wild bushes pissers, but defintely not fine for tapers...
Crowd behavior: That's kind of serious thing to me. The later the day, the more rule and ruthless and agressive against others a few drunken assholes (please stay at the campground,
if you're already filled up) were. A real strange thing also happened to me and the Lord...never experienced that on during TOUNDRA...
To the crew at Freak Valley Festival...again another fine job done. Thank you.
To the reliable taping crew, friends Reinhard and Dietmar at the campground for the nice pavillion (who had gone for good, but survived 4 Burg Herzberg Festivals) and company.
Always been a pleasure and will be...forever...
The show after the rain fell and the last act that was recorded by our crew during Freak Valley Festival 2016. Elder won the internet voting on a competition of FVF's website a few
months ago, so here's their second performance within' a few years and they were a real crowdpleaser as you can hear from the enthusiastic response from the audience. I wanted to
tape them by myself (as I've missed their April clubshow in M�nster due to a foot injury) but I had to give up soaking wet from the knees down, as I thought a feeling like standing
in a filled icecold bathtub for the show and the following wait for the shuttlebus was a bit too much to take. So we're lucky that our strongman LORD DIE was way up front of stage for
this recording of a - in contrast to the weather - hot show. And a bunch of real psychedelic pictures...SB.
