Heart in Hand opened up the day nicely on the Monster Energy Stage with their hardcore sound that made the tent come alive. With a 30 minute set they promoted their new album as well as some of their other well-known songs.
Whereas The Summer Set opened up the Jageemeifter Stage and had a solid set with their summery feeling songs (no pun intended) that just got the crowd moving and in high spirits for the rest of the day!
Transit (Macbeth Stage) had an energetic set, however, sadly left a lot to be desired today as it was a set that just got lost among the many acts there were on at the festival.
By mid-afternoon the acoustic tent (Keep A Breast Stage) was in full swing with Sophomore (AKA Singer of Decade) who had a brilliant set, with well written lyrics and great vocals, this was a must see. Even for Decade fans as there were a few acoustic decade songs slipped in for good measure.
Back on the Main Stage Mallory Knox was knocking their set out of the park, with a fan favourite filled set list with songs ‘Oceans’, ‘Beggars’, ‘Lighthouse’ and ‘Hello’. This set also saw the trend of people climbing the tree in the middle of the crowd in which to rock out from the highest point possible; this was a theme that continues into the night!
The little sweat box that is the Tiger Stage was host to a packed out set for Chunk, No Captain Chunk! The band completely tore the room apart with a little help from the fans of course. The French band had a fantastic set with their energetic stage presence and great pop – punk/hardcore sound! This was by far one of the best sets of the day! This is a band to see if you ever get the chance.
Blitz Kids followed with yet another great set and packed out room! Playing some songs of their ‘Never Die’ EP this was another sweaty show with a few sing-alongs because let’s face it who doesn’t like a good old sing - along.
Sleeping With Sirens were another band that had a solid set and pulled in a big crowd playing their well-known songs, however this was another set I feel got a little lost in the atmosphere of the festival itself.
Kids In Glasshouses followed on the Main Stage and had a good set playing a number of their well-known songs from their first two albums, as well as, playing their newly released song.
The Sinstar Stage held host to a very tense session with Tek – One that literally saw people hit the ceiling with their dubstep style. This set also saw some very intense and very interesting dancing!
All Time Low finished the night off on the Main Stage with their catchy songs and a few acoustic versions too, just adding to the festival feel of a good old sing – along! The boys set also saw their usually light hearted antics, which just adds to the specialness’s of an All Time Low set.
This was a great ending, to a great day!
