I started the second day of Way Out West late in the afternoon by looking at Annika Norlins band Säkert! She has a wonderful presence and nerve on stage. I don't listen that much to her recordings, but I just love to see and hear her perform live. Her show was the highlight of the day.
Then we went back to the 90:s with Pulp. Jarvis was really funny and the band was tight. Euphoria of the day came when they played Disco 2000. It was also special when Tom Hobden from Noah and the Whale joined and played violin on Common people.
I also listened to Tiesto DJ:ing from one of the big stages. Even if there was lots of pyros, videos and fire on stage, I found it a bit boring. Why not use some live vocalists, dancers or something to bring it more alive?
Last but not least there were Kanye West. Much to many people gathered and it was almost impossible to get a glimpse of the stage from my position in the back. One of the few things that the Way Out West crew can improve on. It should not be that hard to view the stage from the back. The main stages just does'nt work when the whole population of WOW turns up at the same time. Well I watched the man enter and listened to the first couple of songs. Then I got tired of standing on my toes listening to rap, wich is'nt my cup of tea. The show seemed outragous and over the top, but when the artist and the music don't fit the suit - I stop to care. So I left early with a couple of good memories from the second day, but in no way near to match those of the first day.
