Tons of Rock 2016 – Saturday with Behemoth, Megadeth, Amon Amarth, Europe and more

Hedvig Mollestad 25062016-14The last day of Tons of Rock 2016 was the best weather wise, sunny and warm. The crowd was still eager to see more bands, even if some of them were getting noticeably tired after the first two days. Most of the people were camping, since Halden doesn’t have a specially good hotel capacity. The day started with The Annex, while Bodies closed the festival twelve hours later. Between them we got Amon Amarth, Megadeth, Behemoth and many others. (Photo above: the audience to Hedvig Mollestad Trio)

Megadeth 25062016-24

This year’s Tons of Rock was the third, and definitely the one with the best attendance. Tons of Rock is getting to become an important festival in Norway. With their mix of new and more experienced acts, plus metal, heavy rock, punk and straight rock, the festival caters to a wider audience than the pure metal or rock festivals. The festival is also very professionally organized, and the crowds have been steadily bigger each of these three years. I am already looking forward to next year’s festival

Here are the artists I saw the last day of Tons of Rock 2016.
