We showed up at Harpa, excited to experience the night ahead, expecially since the line- up was so versatile and grand. We interviewed a lot of people and the place was packed with EVE´s fanfest guests and people that bought tickets to the music fest only. RöXör and Permaband were the first band we saw, and they rocked our socks off, while playing classical rock songs in great costumes accompanied with guest performers and multiple singers.
Next on stage was the ever so great Icelandic rock band HAM, wich had a great comeback with their album they released in 2011, their first one in 16 years Svik, harmur og dauði. The heads were slamming, some people raised their phones or cameras to record a glimpse of the concert for rememberance.
Following HAM was the dubstep musician HaZaR, who is the man behind the track entitled Gimmix wich accompanies the Crucible Trailer for EVE online, and he performed a live set for the ever so great audience.
Lastly and not leastly we watched GusGus step on the stage, the electronical music group that blew us away with their amazingly great voices and atmosphere based build up in their set. Their last album Arabian Hourse is a record that is worth checking out.
We interviewed all those bands backstage, asking questions about EVE, computer games, musical relations to the virtual world and more.
