It’s day three in the damp corner of north wales where HARD ROCK HELL delivers it’s final instalment of rock n roll to a sold out audience. The last two days had been well received on both stages and that weather that we keep mentioning really has failed to dampen the spirits.
The big draw of the final night is THE DEAD DAISIES who have flown in from New York to play on the main stage. Their engineers are on site early to set up whilst THE BAD FLOWERS open on Stage 2 to a packed house. The bill on this stage is second to none really with our old (new) favourites RYDERS CREED, THE RISING SOULS and WALKWAY sharing the stage with some new talent in STAND AMONGST GIANTS.
A little later, the main stage kicks in to life with the highly regarded KALEB MCKANE who is about to embark on tour supporting the guitar great ULI JON ROTH. The talking point of the festival today must surely be MASSIVE who have been as entertaining off stage as on with their penchant for mooning during other band’s interviews (yes - really).
THE DEAD DAISIES continue to be a class act and their heavy touring schedule has failed to remove their shine. Corabi et al play a blinding set that has the main arena closed due to being at capacity. Their new material from 2018’s 'Burn It Down' album mixes well with their staple tracks such as the cover of ‘Midnight Moses’ and their energy onstage continues to be faultless.
As the day draws to a close, there are reflective conversations on the weekend as the festival will move site in the future. Those who have been following the rock n roll train to Wales since its first year are unsure of the new location but one thing is true - the positivity between all those who attend HRH is second to none and we can’t wait to see what’s next.
