Friday: Run The Jewels

Ear: no stars

“The lord Killer Mike and El-P are giving away a show that even the biggest haters are wrong: Run The Jewels is Friday namely the perfect antidote. The three tracks of this year’s record Run The Jewels 3 that the gentlemen kick off, and immediately set the tone. Bombastic hip-hop, with fast-paced raps and a critical layer, but also always with a wink. That goes on the crowded field in as cake.”

The Morning: no stars

“Hip-hop headliners called in the line, Jay-Z or Kanye, but that sound like wimps in comparison with Run The Jewels. The music was rough and ruthless. Close Your Eyes and Count to Fuck we had to ask ourselves restrain to not like crazy at our backdoor neighbour to twerken. Their overwhelmed glances spoke volumes.”

3voor12: no stars

“Run The Jewels raps sharply – as they always do. They miss no word, no phone, no bar, and complement each other continuously. They know where they are as a sprint can pull then from puffing. No, the tension they hold really not one and a half hours solid, some bare beats to miss the impact in the open air, and just too many lesser known tracks fall death for that oh-so-large field. But the rappers are so much better than anyone had dared dream.”

From the driving rhythm with which the sound barrier of Wake Up was built, to the for the band rare encore, and played the dozen or so musicians with full devotion and it was exactly that interaction with the audience that you were hoping for.

Sunday: Radiohead

AD: no stars

“The Best Kept Secret took a financial risk with the contracting of a band that is actually too large for the intimate festival. But Radiohead proved to be worth the investment, it was simply a good performance. The band of frontman Thom Yorke (48) is actually the field to the posterior blade of grass to conquer, than was a more accessible setopbouw would have been required. Now had the unsuspecting festivalfan a very long run-up to endure for the concert and really gripping.”
