At the very last day of this years HOVE festival, thousands of attendees woke up in their over heated tents gasping for air (and water for sure). You didn't need an artfully retro instagram filter to make HOVE look like heaven this sunny Friday morning, it came pre-instagrammed.
Half mexican and half american Miguel is old school, new school and everything smooth in between. Every song is performed as if it was a headliner set closer, but each time he comes back to deliver more. Later on the same stage there was ASAP Rocky. He appears twenty minutes late as the big star he is. ‘I didn’t come here to perform, I came to party’, he screams. As the beats of his most known hit, «fucking problem», starts, the enthusiastic crowd on the front rows goes crazy.
Other highlights this last day of the festival was energic Bullet for My Valentine, ASAP Rocky’s friends Flatbush Zombies, Nause, and of course Calvin Harris. The Oslo boys Chris Stallion and Patski Love in JUICY finished the festival and litterally lifted the non-existing roof in Kasino. People danced their asses off and it was clear that Juicy’s beats was the perfect way to close the HOVE festival 2013. See more photos from HOVE here: Pt1, Pt2. Stay tuned for video from the festival.
