8 and 9 July 2011: Sonisphere in Amnéville, France.

This weekend I had a great trip to Amnéville, France. Together with Jaap van ‘t Leven and my son we attended the Sonisphere 2011 festival. I saw fine performances by many heavy metal bands, including Dream Theater, Slipknot (not my band, but my son is crazy about Slipknot), Airbourne, Mass Hysteria , and of course the Big Four. These are the four biggest thrash metal bands from the 80’s: Anthrax, Megadeth, Slayer and Metallica. Here are some pictures. Unfortunately my camera is somewhat old so I could not make decent pictures in the evening. More pictures on Jaap’s website.
