On our way to Rijssen, where the Kick Ass Festival would take place, we came across a crowd of people dressed up to celebrate Carnival ( "Carnaval") in the Dutch county of Overijssel. Several metalheads, however, decided to go and enjoy metal instead and to spupport their local bands. We can conclude that at this fine venue, Lucky, everyone celebrated their own Carnival with lots of laughter, good music and plenty of beer.
