Another Great Open Air Festival

Area4 in Germany's West has a great line-up this year and I am happy to report that I just got my tickets in the mail.

Since Southside did not excite me too much this year because of line-up that remained rather slim and timing of bands competing for best time slots I decided to branch out and look elsewhere. In fact Southside's aftermath newsletter offered a sneak peak into Area4 which I liked so I researched some more. 

Besides some neat website features Area4 offers (personal calendar, online ticketing, videos) I was happy to find the possibility to park my car in the RV section for sleepover's as long as I have some sleeping utensils visible there. So I will do as I haven't in many moons and pack a mattress and pillows and take off to that show with all these great acts:
