Green Carnation @ Quart Festival, Norway
I' m going to be there! Anyone else?
Any experiences with this festival? From what I' ve heard it 's going to be huge! Can 't wait!

Yup. I will be there the whole week ... there are many great bands I want to see besides GC: Tool, Opeth, Muse, Woven Hand, Extol, Depeche Mode ++ .

Kristiansand is a great town, especially in the summer, and Quart is Norway's biggest summer festival. But I can't say I'm a big fan of the festival, beyond that. Camping is expensive and filled with tons of annoying stuck-up teenagers playing crappy hiphop music and living off their wealthy parents (I won't be camping there this year, fortunately). And most hotels/motels are fully booked months before. Generally stiff beer prices.

But hey ... don't mean to scare you off or anything... there many great things also, like the locations of the scenes, which are on a nice woodland peninsula just outside the town centre.
Well, hope you enjoy your stay.

I' ve already seen the location when I was in Kristiansand 3 weeks ago. Lovely place! Hope it will be sunny!
And I'm very lucky, I don 't have to sleep on the campingsite either :)
Everyone tells me Kristiansand will be a whole different place from the Kristiansand I saw last month hehe, I' m very curious and really looking forward to the festival ->Depeche Mode!!!! It 'll be the third time I see them this tour. I' m also looking forward to see GC play cause it will be the second time that I see them live, but the first time (last October)I didn 't know their music yet...

from the website:
"The highlight will off course be the concert at the QuartFestival on Thursday, but it seems to be quite a bit of interest in our Acoustic Lunch - session on Wednesday, singer Kjetil Nordhus says.
Green Carnation's concert at the Quart Festival is at the venue "Plenen" on Thursday at 1700. There's free entrence to their showcase on Akustisk Lunch on Kick Wednesday at 1500."
Lunch at 3? I thought I was the only one who had lunch at such times hehe.
I hope my plane doesnt have a delay on Wednesday so I can see that too(I am supposed to land at 11.50). See you guys at Quart!

Sounds like it was great.... I so need to just spend a summer going to festivals across Europe.

I am just charged for Under the Dam.
