In the category ‘First World Problems’: schedule clashes! Luckily the clash wasn’t too bad. We just had to leave Faderhead a bit earlier than we would have wanted to secure our front row spot with Coma Alliance at the Theatre Stage.

Earlier this year, the Coma Alliance concert in Oberhausen (my first concert of the year) was so incredibly awesome that it would be difficult to top. But anyway, I was really looking forward to seeing them live again.

When we arrived Schattenmann were still playing, so we moved forward as far as possible to be ready for their crowd leaving, making room for us to storm forward and claim our spots. Mission acclompished!

This time the stage was occupied by only three band members (Adrian, Torben and Zura) instead of four (no Max), but the energy wasn’t any the less for it. And the little ‘lost in rainbows’ routine during Butterfly:Dance! still makes me smile.

Of course the setlist of 10 songs was way too short, but that’s unfortunately always the case at festivals. This left me yearning for so much more. But at least I still have a physical copy of the setlist. And many pictures.
