Limp Bizkit free gig - Finsbury Park 2003
On 6th September 2003, Limp Bizkit held a free gig in Finsbury Park for 20000 fans. Tickets were available online and sold out in hours! I took Mike, Ryk and Mark with me. The line-up was pretty good - thisGIRL, Biffy Clyro, InMe, Cooper Temple Clause, A and finally Limp Bizkit.

We were among the first 3000 to arrive, which meant we were given wristbands to access the mosh pit. The rest of the audience were behind a barrier in the rest of the park. This worked well in terms of having room to breathe at the front, and safety, but the resentment caused the people behind us to start missiling us. Having been searched for bottles etc on entry (along with a sniffer dog) the stalls inside were selling bottles so missiles were freely available, which was a mistake! However the music was good and it was a fun day over all.

thisGIRL weren't very good. Still we had been sitting around for ages, so it was nice to hear some music.

People were starting to squish up against the barrier behind us.

Mike, and the drinks. Sadly being a Carling sponsored event, there was no real beer, only lager.

Ryk hides from the sun.

Biffy Clyro were reasonably popular, but I'd never heard of them.

Mark enjoys a healthy lunch.

Lager or cider... it's the lesser of two evils...

InMe were my favourite of the support acts, so I went further forward to watch.

Cooper Temple Clause were also ok.

Fans build up behind the barrier. We were starting to get missiled by the idiots behind. The idiots in with us didn't ease things much either. Security couldn't stop it.

Ryk in a small patch of sunlight (like a cat?).

The rest of the park - stalls including Metal Morphosis. Next to them was a stall selling poppers which I and Ryk tried.

There was also a funfair. Not my idea of fun!

View fullsize
A were interesting although not my kind of thing.

View fullsize
Mark was missiled by a ketchup bottle.

In the middle of the picture, the singer from A is running along the length of the barrier. People get excited.

Safely back on stage.

Now it is really starting to pack in as we wait for the headline act.

Some girls' arses that we liked.

Limp Bizkit put out a monitor fire while carrying on singing (the small glow on the bottom right of the stage).

Mark and Ryk.

Again blurry but atmospheric.

The best shot of Limp Bizkit who were surprisingly good.

Flames! Part of the show this time.

The set ended with a manic version of Faith in which all the lasses were encouraged to get into the air, hence those on shoulders.
