My First Festival Season !

May 30th, 2010 at 02:51 pm

So after buying my tent, sleeping pad and sleeping bag I'm now going to put them to good use !

I'm already got a ticket to a 3 day Music, Body and Soul Festival in September - but that seems like quite a bit away yet...

So today I saw an ad for a Summer Solstice Festival happening over the weekend of 19/20 June in a neighbouring County. It sounds fantastic:

"The Body & Soul Gathering is not a gig, it's an experience. It's about reminding ourselves of the great musicians, story tellers, performers and artists that walk among us. It's about reconnecting with our culture and each other. It's about meeting with like minded people, progressive thinkers, healers, even a few kooky creatives. It's about feeling alive, inspired, excited by life. It's also about reminding ourselves what there's no time like the present to have a bit of good old fashioned fun!

In keeping with the ancient tradition, the weekend will draw to an end with a fire ceremony in tribute to the festival theme: Phoenix Rising. Marking endings and new beginnings, death and new life and the continuous cycle of change. Festival goers can create their own lanterns in an "illuminati workshop tent" and participate in the closing ceremony. "

I'm already 80% sold on going - I might buy the ticket tonight.

I'm looking forward to camping out in the countryside and meeting people with different takes on life - that's what really interests me !

    aaah festivals. DF and I used to go to about four every year, for five years (DF has been going for 10 years). When we bought our house we decided not to go to as many any more, and in over a year have not been to one! We are thinking about going to a Blues one next year. You will have so much fun!

    Sounds like a good time! Tents and music go together really well, and the whole experience can lead to memorable times, especially with the right people. (With the wrong people it can be memorable too, but not in a good way, so you want to have some insurance that you know the people you are camping/festivaling with! Enjoy...
