I hope I'll be there.. :)

The WGT homepage doesn't show any bands yet, but they're always late with announcements...  ;D

Me and I enjoyed it!  ;D
I think many people are still there because the festival ended just some hours ago, but I was there only on Friday and Sunday.

Here are some photos, but not high quality...

http://www.ipernity.com/doc/s.tobi/home?c=4&s=uploaded

Except for the fact that Svein Terje was missing, it was a great concert, perfect sound (never heard at a Tristania concert before...) and a crowd that seemed to like it, at least after two or three songs (and I was standing in the second row, middle)...

The setlist was, I hope it's the correct order...

Libre
Shadowman
Angellore
Mercyside
Down
The Wretched
Beyond The Veil
World Of Glass

I was especially impressed with Anders Growls (quite loud...) and, oh, Mary...

I had some doubts about her ability to perform particular songs, but I even liked World Of Glass and Down very much which sounded quite, hm, "interesting" on the vids of past concerts...
Last Friday it made perfect sense. The best parts were the beginning of Beyond The Veil and her parts in Libre, especially the last one.

Masters Of Rock is so far away, but I'm thinking about it  :D
I hope there will be a tour this year...

WOW, I'm happy that you enjoyed your time with Tristania :) It's a good sign for me  ;D
The setlist was quite good, but a little bit short, but it was a festival...
Thanks for sharing the photos!
I hope that we will see/hear more soon :)

I will post some links to photos I'm finding. There was a huge "crowd" between the stage and the crowd so there should be enough photos  :D

The ones ive seen of WGT already is a shame that they're far from the stage.

Hopefully we will see some good quality ones like the dates from Moscow / Kiev :)
