Looks like The Sisters are 3rd on the bill (below DM and Placebo) on the main stage.
1 hour set (19:00-20:00)
It will still be daylight! :eek:

BELOW PLACEBO??!!

That's a fookin' travesty and no mistake.

I'd still bloody love to go - Interlaken is beeee-yoooo-tiful :notworthy: , but I've only got one bank account, and Wave Gotik Treffen won out 8) . See you in Berlin, Scardy :wink: .

Makes sense though.

Placebo release albums, give regular interviews, sell out tours and put on reliably good shows. Sadly the Sisters fall into none of the above catagories anymore. :urff:

Killer line-up though :notworthy: :notworthy:

Well in babyshambles' case in particular can I suggest squeezing them into one of those things that squashes cars into a nice little cube?

Good gig IMHO, even if it was too short. There’s something about The Sisters on a big stage that makes the power of the music really come through.
The band seemed pleased to be there and were having fun. Ben in particular seemed to be enjoying himself, grinning several times at people he knew in the audience. Von spoke some German a few times.
Sound was good but guitars could have been louder. The smoke kept on blowing away but so what? Better photo opportunities!
There was a spot of bother when one of the cameramen refused to stop filming at first. All performances were shown on the giant screens left and right, all except The Sisters' that it is. A little persuasion from a Sisters roadie (I forget his name) was needed.
It was a blazing hot summer’s day until near the end of The Sisters' set when it clouded over and turned to drizzle followed by rain during most of Placebo’s set, although the rain had stopped by the time Depeche Mode hit the stage.
DM put on a good show I thought (as did Placebo). Miles better than when I last saw them (Crystal Palace 1993). They played almost all the songs I wanted to hear as well.
Excellent festival and in an exquisite location to boot.

Such a cute photo and a dumb ass called _emma_ doesn't know how to save it. In fact, she doesn't even know how to insert that banging-forehead-against-keyboard emoticon here. :?
HELP :!:

I forgot to tell you about one funny thing,
during the gig Andrew throwed a plastic bottle with something red inside
Eva got it, then she gave it to me.
There was terrible sweet drink :) :) :)
I just wonder if it was Von's stimulator :?:
