Miss Infernosounds Memorial Concert 2021

On Saturday 20th February 2021 the annual memorial concert for Veronika/Infernosounds/Vronlyn was held on Weathertop, on Gwaihir, in LOTRO. Miss Infernosounds, as I will always think of her, was a much-loved member of the LOTRO community, who passed away in December 2018. As with the first event in 2019, the event began with a dog walk.

Weatherstock XII 2020

On Saturday 12th September 2020 Weatherstock XII took place, on the Landroval server, in LOTRO. Weatherstock is an annual music festival held on Weathertop. This year an amazing 31 bands took part.

The event started with an opening set from The Lonely Mountain Band Mega-Band, a supergroup formed of members of The Andune Ensemble, Old Winyards and The BBB. These three bands are the house bands of the Lonely Mountain Band kinship, the organisers of the event. Next the 31 band played; Starlight first, then The Hope, then The Tones, then…well you get the idea. After the bands had played, the LOTRO community manager Cordovan, addressed the crowd briefly, to thank everyone involved. The LMB Mega-Band then played the closing set of the main event. After this followed the mounted parade to the Bree Festival grounds where the aftershow party took place.

Below are my screen shots from the event.
