Re: zurich openair?

I'd like to see Kraftwerk, but I can't be bothered to wait for hours in a muddy field with people smoking dope around me for a 45 minute playback set.

Is there a special package available for middle-aged rock fans who just go for the music? I'll sign up for that.

Re: zurich openair?

No, thanks, too much electronic music there this year.
I will head over to reading and watch foo fighters, the gaslight anthem, black keys , Bullet for my Valentine.......(Sunday 1 Day only I am going)

I can recommend this years gampel where the foo fighters , beatsteaks or eagles of death metal will play (on thursday 16.08.12).

or head over to Konstanz where Green Day, Beatsteaks, Flogging Molly and Social Distortion will play (Sep. 01st 2012).

I got 1 ticket left over for Winterthur 16.08 where Flogging Molly and the Hives are playing (PM if you are interested).

Re: zurich openair?

Just did St Gallen a few weeks ago and we're heading down to Gampel festival soon. Looks like an awesome venue...

Zurich Open Air had such a good line up 2 years ago but this year is all electronic . I don't understand....

Can't wait to see the Foo Fighters, last time I saw them was 1996 on the Gold Coast, QLD. My first festival...... AHHhhhh the memories

Here's hoping next year's line up will be all obscure Country & Western music acts then, eh!?

JK, I just dig electronic music that's all !

I like repetitive music, I like repetitive music, I like repetitive music....

Nah I like electronic music too, Paul Kalkbrenner being my favourite. It's just the last line up for Züri open Air was so different, more rock bands...

Btw. I´m 22 years old girl from Cech Republic.

Hey,It told me I couldn´t post more than 4 private massage per day :/ So please PM me your email address please

Re: zurich openair?

mud situation should be good, they covered the ground with boards.
(how slippery that will be, no idea...)
Going to see Fanta4 on Sunday, won't be much electronic there, they're playing unplugged! yay!

Re: zurich openair?

I went on Thursday, mainly for The Killers and The Wombats. Both were awesome!

Did anyone see Bloc Party the other night? I was going to get tickets for that but they were the only band I would have really wanted to see that day. As said above, a lot of it is elector or dubstep, not my scene really!

One thing that was a bit annoying was the fact you had to buy tokens to get food and drink. Has that always been the case? I remember having to do it for Montreux Jazz a few years ago but they stopped it. If it is to help boost revenue it seems a bit counter-productive for me as I would have probably spent more if they took francs!

This was terrible, I'm sure it's just a con, how many people walk out not cashing back their chips because they made it such a hassle? Not only did I lose some of the tokens, we tried to take some cups back before Orbital came on so we didn't have to hang on to them, just wanted to exchange them back for tokens, can you do it at the beer tent? NO, got to go to a seperate little tent hidden round the back.

Re: zurich openair?

We went along on Saturday without any expectations and had an amazing time throughout. It was a lovely atmosphere, with very friendly people.

"Kraftwerk" were superb although the 3D glasses for this gig were less than useless. Surprisingly, my sunglasses proved more effective although I soon took them off for fear of losing them in all that mud whilst dancing!

It was our first time of hearing and seeing "Mogwai" and who totally rocked!

The "Bloody Beetroots" DJ-set were awesome, as were the other DJ sets we listened to earlier in the day but had no idea what they were called.

All in all, a fun and fabulous weekend all round!

Re: zurich openair?

Quite surprised that no one counter fitted the tokens. It would be quite easy to do and would save a ridiculous amount of hassle.

I was all for going along until I saw the price of CHF 88 for one day entry!! Could hear the boom boom from my house though, so all was not lost....

Re: zurich openair?

The Mud Problem at the Zurich Open Air is still unsolved , there are new problems (Tokens , Toilets, Sound; Camping)...........

Because the music was not my cup of coffee i traveled to the Reading Festival
(Last Foo Fighters Gig for a long time), no Rain on Sunday, no Mud, had an awesome Time at the barrier, loooking forward the the gig of Green Day in Konstanz
