As the sun set on the First day of the festival, the atmosphere shifted dramatically. The gentle, experimental melodies of the indie bands that had filled the air on the first night were replaced by the raw, powerful energy of the alternative and metal bands. The stage, once adorned with soft, pastel lights, was now bathed in a harsh, electric glow, reflecting the intensity of the music.
The crowd, too, had transformed. Gone were the flower crowns and flowing dresses of the indie fans, replaced by the black band tees and leather jackets of the metalheads. The air was charged with anticipation as the first chords of the opening act reverberated through the festival grounds.
