Yesterday I was in paradise. Musical paradise. With angels all around me, and heavenly vibes bombarding my soul from all angles. No other words suffice to describe the beauty of the Solar Weekend Festival.
Initially I had thought it would be a day spent with techno and electro-house artistes, and the music on offer would be a whole world different from the soul food at Kwaku Festival.
I was wrong. Very wrong.
I received a life-changing musical education yesterday. Although I have always had much respect and admiration for Dutch DJs, I never thought I would ever spend so many hours at the best party of my life dancing my heart out at a Dutch festival.
Another worrying factor was the fact that the only other music festival I had heard about was Woodstock, and the brouhaha from my friends who are regular festival-goers never won me over.
Wrong again! Now I know everyone ought to attend at least one musical festival before they die. I’ve been lucky enough to attend 2 in a week. Do you now understand why I regret not moving to the Netherlands years ago?
The scenes at Solar! were simply out-of-this-world; this year’s theme was “Fantasy World” and I kept wishing I had more eyes…
See for yourself!
