Nightwish's Floor Jansen Small Bands Matter As Much As Headliners


(TeamRock Radio) Nightwish's Floor Jansen says that small bands matter just as much as headlining acts at festivals. They say they'll never be upstaged by "huge names, big bands and massive productions."

Jansen tells TeamRock: "You can only be as good as you are, in the light of those huge names, big bands and massive productions - we can bring as much pyro as we want, but we will need to be exactly who we are and that should be enough. That's the biggest challenge to see if that will make you happy.

"If it was a solo show and it was just this band that was headlining, it would probably look different - but every band that plays here today matters. The first band is just as important as the last band - and there are great bands playing at three in the afternoon. Does it really matter? Does it say something about how good they are or their status? I don't think so. Maybe perceptions should change." Read more here.
