Festivals are there to come across bands that you have not heard of before and after having heard of them, you can not imagine how you could ever do without them. Moddi is such a band that we got to discover this festival season. The Norwegian band around Pål Moddi Knutsen played a mind-blowing show in the local church at Haldern Pop Festival and on the morning after they set up their stuff at the next cow paddock. The spotted cows are intrigued and gather at the fence, when fair curly haired Moddi and his bandmates start into a haunting rendition of „Krokstav-Emne“. A fresh breeze is blowing around the young singer’s head, who wears a T-shirt propagating wind power. Till the end of the atmospheric performance the cows seem to have pushed forward even more and – apart from the noise of cars driving-by – this feels like the perfect festival idyll!
