Fuji Rock Festival in Japan

I visited Fuji Rock Festival in Japan in July, 2015

I finally reached the other end of the festival area, it must have taken me half an hour to walk at least, without any long stops. Walking in a crowd slowed me down a bit though, and it was mostly crowded here. Trying to see the whole area took some time, so large and so many different paths. And always so many people.

First day at Fuji Rock Festival

I went to Fuji Rock Festival in July, 2015

This post is dedicated to Lemmy. May you rest in unpeace. It was written before his death and I have decided not to change it.

Mötorhead was one of the bands I had really wanted to see at the festival. I saw them in Brisbane in 2007, the concert was awesome. I could not wait to see them again. They were the second to last band on the main stage that night, I got a good spot just outside the moshpit to see them.

As soon as we arrived we where greeted with smiles and hugs. People had loved us two years ago, it felt good to be back. We arrived in Royan, close to Bordeaux just in time for the festival, only time to drop our bags where we would sleep, make sure to bring the merchandice, head over to the festival.

Looking for a record store in Reykjavik

I looked for a record store in Reykjavik in April 2013

When I visited Reykjavik, Iceland in April 2010, during the volcanic eruption in fact, I found this really cool second-hand LP store. Serving both as a store and a hang-out, it also featured sofas and a television. This was during the worst of the financial crisis on Iceland, I had a very interesting discussion with the owner and his friends about the crisis and its impact on the Icelandic population. I really wanted to return to the record store in Reykjavik

Crescendo Prog Festival

We visited Crescendo Prog Festival for the first time in August 2013.

The Crescendo Festival is held every year in the small town of St. Palais-Sur-Mer, just outside Royan, in Rocheford on France’s western coast. Royan is a small, seaside resort town in an urban area of about 37.000 people. The Crescendo festival has been held here every third weekend in August since 1999. Lately there has also been a Crescendo festival in French Guyana but due to financial difficulties, this festival has not been held every year.
