Somewhere in the idyllic Styrian mountainside, it’s a gorgeous summer’s day and you might expect locals in Lederhosen yodelling away merrily, alas instead Austria’s Youth in Revolt is treated to an outburst of electrically amplified anger….and copious amounts of skanking. Kapfenberg’s Overdrive Encore festival has maintained a steady presence on the Austrian festival circuit over the last decade. This time round the lineup included calibers like Leftover Crack, I Wrestled a Bear Once, Stick to your Guns, Texas in July and Reel Big Fish.
It’s fascinating to observe the movement of the crowd as the genres shift around it. Sharing music online and advanced distribution networks have allowed people to surf through the waves of the amazing amounts of music out there, it’s a lovely thing to see a bunch of metal heads happily skanking away mere moments after you thought their singing voices only exist in drop D screaming.
The mood and attitude of the people at the festival was both positive and lighthearted, I’d guess there were about a 1000 people there during the headliners, compared to some of the massive events like Nova Rock and Frequency this may seem modest, but it’s a sweet thing that international bands choose to come to a location like Kapfenberg to play for their fans. In terms of organization everyone was helpful and friendly, since everything there was very close together fans had the chance to be very close to the bands, both during the concerts and the interview sessions.
After making some videos for them last year at Arena in Vienna, this time round we got the chance to film an Interview with the Reel Big Fish. They really took the time to speak to us and it was as absurd as it was informative. Awesome times. Check out the first clip from our „chat“ with them here, Cheers to that!
