Already the first two (and sold out) editions of MADRID IS THE
DARK enticed with such charming line-up that I was already up
to try everything attending this festival. It did not work out,
so the third edition manifested itself as a must-be-there event,
at all costs...
already appeared on the last year’s billing, ISOLE
on the debut one’s. But MADRID IS THE DARK III had
so much more to offer. ENSLAVED and KATATONIA alone
would have been worth taking the ride towards Madrid ;)

Madrid, the eternal, the new, and the queen of thieves. Latter part
we had to feel the effect of, right when we arrived. Killed our
Yap, I got robbed on the way from the airport to the hotel and was
close to black despair. But also this year’s edition of MADRID
IS THE DARK seemed to be ill-fated too. Two times the venue
had to be changed. One week prior the festival it happened again.
At the end it was the • Sala
Penelope • in the heart of Madrid that gave us home,
roof and stage to celebrate dark music.
A nice club, but unfortunately two columns left and right the stage
blocked sight, the lounge was kept close and there was no photo
pit either. People with such kind of ambitions had to get into some
trench warfares first ;) Beer was served in huge cups (0.5, 0.6l?)
for 6 Euro. Pressure fueling for the Madrileñans *lol* Worked
out fine btw.
