Another Serbian Underground Festival is behind us. # 5 has contributed to our new memories, new experiences, new tones.
Blankfile left behind a weekend in which they performed on perhaps the biggest underground festival in Serbia, Serbian Underground Festival. It was the fifth edition of this festival, and Blankfile was one of the few bands that had the opportunity to perform on two. What a chaos happened during their performance will not surprise the third call! We talked to Peter about a bit...
So, when are we going to watch to again at SUF?
Petar: As far as we are concerned, we would do it again this weekend! Hehe... now seriously, the Festival of the Serbian Underground is an increasingly serious manifestation of the underground, from year to year, not just music, but complete subculture. A unique festival, on a totally unprofitable basis, with a serious approach. I hope we'll play again sometime.
What is the main impression from the festival?
Petar: The main impression is the definite ambience and concept. Everything was happening in the fair hall, which is a perfect concert-shaped, pure cube with two bouts one against the other. You're getting ready for your set without a hurry and watching a band on stage across the road. Exceptional! You are in that hill and everything in your surroundings is "painted" in the underground, shaking and firing with strong riffs and energy, and in the middle of an environment that peacefully lives and does not even notice what is happening in the neighborhood. You come out of the hall and you're not sure if you really saw everything and you had it. This "Vakanda" trip thrilled me.
Have some of these appearances particularly attracted attention?
Petar: We always like to support young bands, so I'm biased to point out a team from Vicery. They fight their death metal experiment and are not interested in giving up. Their frontman Elio spontaneously embarked on our performance and sang the The End Of Us with us, which deserves a special riskiet from us. Otherwise, I can say that each band brought some of their story, made a show on the level and truly contributed to the taste of the whole alternative scene of Serbia "in small".
And your performance?
Petar: We enjoyed! I think that the crowd in the audience felt it and followed it with their energy. Together we jumped, sang, showed the stage and hall, breathed in the same clock at those moments. This is your closed circle, the third (Newton's) law of live performances. So we like to do this most.
Epilogue - A message for the end?
Petar: Well done to the organizers! Bravo for the audience! We continue the fight for underground, on all fronts!
