Possibly the best festival of 2012 in many ways. Very well done to Rob da Bank and the brilliant team at http://www.bestival.net/
A real treat to be able to support management at this incredible event. It’s an inspiring feeling to help build a temporary magical live-in playground for many thousands of people. Most grateful to work with these people and minds – some of the brightest people I have ever met come from the Event Industry. They are calm yet social and tremendously positive, personable, very conscious, seem to somehow remember everything that is going on everywhere, and every person doing it – as switched on a tribe as many I’ve met.
Arcadia on Saturday night, with a huge installation, stage with fire-breathing dragon – an astonishingly fire and light display, while at the same time a crazy Jean Monti the ‘aerial daredevil’ stands ropeless on a giant sway pole seemingly 100 metres in the air. Mental.
Lots of lovely people being creative, and expressing themselves in all sorts of wonderful ways. And a cool line-up peaking with massive amounts of glistening confetti and fireworks and 60,000 people going berserk to Stevie Wonder. Another highlight.
Adored meeting the Aussie Folk from Fairylove – what divine creatures you are.. http://www.fairylove.com/
Let’s see if I can dig out a couple of photos. Go to this festival once in your life – or contact us and make your own event fly.
