Nummirock

Nummirock - Day Three, June 21st 2014, Nummijärvi, Kauhajoki, Finland

Nummirock is held over the crucial Finnish Juhannas holiday. Metalheads from all over head to the serene lakeside venue to set up camp and cry havoc for the long weekend. The last day of the festival swept in cold and damp, but that didn't deter the thousands from drinking and live music! It had our photographer hiding in the warmer drinking areas, but we've got live shots from Stone, Turisas, Turmion Kätilöt, W.A.S.P., Whispered, Suicide Silence and Tuoni!

It's moshpits, metal and most importantly, it's Midsummer.

Nummirock - Day One, June 19th 2014, Nummijärvi, Kauhajoki, Finland

Nummirock is held over the crucial Finnish Juhannas holiday. Metalheads from all over head to the serene lakeside venue to set up camp and cry havoc for the long weekend. It's bugs, beer and bonfires. It's sauna with new friends, sauna with old friends and naked drunks wandering the campsites. It's moshpits, metal and most importantly, it's Midsummer. The opening evening was filled with Deals Death (SWE), Profane Omen (FIN), Speedtrap (FIN) and Kaunis Kuolematon (FIN).
