The Big Four, for the first time ever on the same stage. Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth. Metallica, I’d not seen before and was impressed as I was with the energy of the Polish crowd who had been moshing all day.
There was one massive problem with this festival and that was the beer tent which had so many failings. It was SHOCKING! The location of them were about half a mile from the stage, once at the beer tent there was a 40 minute wait to be served. Once served you were not allowed to leave the compound with beer! This meant you couldn’t watch the bands and there was no TV’s in the said compound. Therefore I heard the sets of both Anthrax and Slayer.
This isn’t where it ended, they had a offer where you could get 5 beers cheaper if purchased in one go, except you could only buy these from designated bar staff, none of which were obvious. This meant that the line you had been waiting in for the last 40 minutes may have been the wrong one.
Cue “20 beers please…”
