Live Coverage || Jera On Air 2018

Let's start with the obvious, how amazing the festival is. Contrary to most summer fests, it isn't gigantic, which means that you can easily find your friends when you get lost for a while. Everyone is friendly, kind and more than happy seeing their favorite bands.



Speaking of favorite bands, I had the chance to catch some of my very favorites; Bury Tomorrow, Underoath, Being As An Ocean and Stick to Your Guns.

Bury Tomorrow KILLED it as usual, even if their were not performing without bassist Davyd Winter-Bates that day. Crowdsurfers all the bloody time (myself included), no time to breathe and many people singing along with Jason Cameron.
On to Underoath, and I don't have enough words to even describe their show.
It was my fist time ever seeing/shooting the biggest icon of post-hardcore. The band started the set with the first single from the new album "On My Teeth", followed by a mix of old and new songs in a insane and very energetic performance. Apparently, Underoath is everyone's favorite teenage band, provided that even the bands that was watching it from the stage was singing along... 
Being As An Ocean was as emotional and intense as always. Song by song you could feel all the love and bond between the band and the crowd, especially when Joel decides to join them in the middle of the pit.
Stick to Your Guns is definitely one of the most powerful bands of the current hardcore scene. Jumps, circle pits, you know the drill. Hands down the best show of all weekend. It's no secret that vocalist Jesse Barnett is passionate when he speaks on stage, so it comes as no surprise when he channels this passion into his songs. 
Alazka played on the smaller stage with no barricade, which meant the crowd was at a close distance to the band and got to sing with them during all songs. Malevolence followed, and it was interesting to see the same crowd and a different reaction. While Alazka was playing, everyone was trying to feel the love and sing. What happened during Malevolence was what you'd expect in a beatdown show; nothing less than an aggressive and violent mosh pit, with a lot of girl power to prove that it's not just boys fun.
Neck Deep with their amazing pop punk show had everyone there sing all the songs while Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes can just be described in one word: in-fucking-sane.

We could talk all day long about all the bands that played over the weekend but pictures are worth thousands of words. Jera on Air knows how to balance an amazing and very diverse line up in a way that satisfies all music tastes in the scene.
Thank you, Jera, see you next year!
