Do you enjoy playing at festivals?

Anette - I haven't actually done too many so I'm looking forward to headlining Bloodstock, and just to be in England again. We're so happy that things are going so well for us over there, it's a place thats really important to us.

I have to admit, I have a love/hate relationship with UK - you have weird buildings and I'm not sure about the food, but the people are really cool! I love how you dress and act!

There are a lot of Scandinavian bands on the bill, does that make you proud?

Yeah it does. There's a band from my little village in Sweden called Cloudscape and they're playing too, so it will be nice that we are playing at the same festival as my friends!

Are you likely to indulge in any backstage bad behaviour?

I don't think so, I'm too old to do that and I have to set a good example for my son! Usually when I'm sober, people think i'm drunk anyway, i think i'm kinda crazy in myself anyway so i don;t need to be drinking a lot! We'll definetly have some fun, but i don;t think we'll destroy anything!

What's the best thing about playing on a big festival stage?

The stage is really big and nice! I like to keep moving when i'm performing and small stages make me feel trapped. You can jump around so much more on a big stage...its nice for Emppu to run around as well!

What are you looking forward to this summer apart from Bloodstock?

We're going to be spending a lot of the summer off the road and it'll be nice to stay in Sweden for a while. My son will be off school and we can have some fun together, and I'll see my family and friends, and enjoy the forest and lake near where i live, maybe have some barbeques...I'll be going to London at some point to go shopping! When we were there I shopped like hell! I'll probably bring an empty suitcase with me and fill it up with make-up and clothes...that will make me very happy!!

Thank you Anette and have fun on the rest of the tour..

Thank you very much, and i can't wait!!
