On Saturday night Deftones headlined Oppikoppi 2013 Bewilderbeast. A huge crowd of +/- 18000 people made their way to the Wesley’s Dome stage to catch a glimpse of this amazing American rock band in action. I was one of the privileged few to photograph them from the photographer’s pit.
Deftones were louder than I expected. They played every single song that I wanted to hear. I started getting goosebumps when they started playing their songs “My Own Summer (Shove It)” (the tune that put them on the map thanks to The Matrix OST) and “Be Quiet And Drive”. Their live performance skills impressed me, but I have to admit that it got a bit monotonous nearing the end of their set. I’m sure that some of you reading this will agree with me. Here are some of the photos that I took during their set:
