Review by: Jeff Terranova of TheAntiEmoEmpire.com.
“Every Summer hundreds of kids travel from all over the world to the small town of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania to celebrate youth culture and the current state of the hardcore-punk scene. Get ready to mosh, stage-dive, and sing-a-long. This is Positive Numbers Fest 2004.” – taken from DVD back cover.
This DVD release consists of select bands from the three day Positive Numbers Fest that took place on July 16th, 17th and 18th of 2004! The menu is easy to navigate and you can select to watch all or pick by band. The live performances are shot from three different camera angles and the audio sounds like it was taken from the cameras. A great selection of bands from the overall that played the fest and great performances by all as well. Judging from the crowd reaction, which was insane for all of the bands throughout, it’s easy to see how this fest has gained major notoriety over the past years!
This DVD is a must have for anyone who attended the show as well as those who did not. I am sure that it will be fun for fans to try and pick themselves out of the crowd if they were in attendance. If you were not able to attend, the multiple camera angles put you on stage with the band and also in the crowd… it’s the next best thing to actually being at the show!
