musica festivities.

If you are in Guangzhou or Shenzhen you should most definitely go to the ‘South Music Fest’ :

There are actually a wide variety of music festivals happening across China this summer, and this one is right in my old neighbourhood and the lovely Panda Band are playing. I’m sure it will be a magical day with a colourful assortment of bands performing.

Last weekend I decided to spontaneously go to T in the Park, which I haven’t been to since my mid teens. It was indeed an adventure and although it wasn’t as hippy as I’d have hoped, it was nonetheless hilarious, and filled with funky music. From droplets of rain to heavy showers, to ceilidh dancing to Woodenbox and a run-in with an old friend, to Manic Street Preachers and yet another coincidental meeting, followed by Friendly Fires in a downpour, a frantic run to the first-aid tent, followed by a ride in an ambulance to a hospital war-zone hanger filled with overdosing ecstasy people and then an escape to catch the twinkling beats of Crystal Castles. A comeback if I may say so. Dance dance dance to Beyonce and then a mad skip, jump and dash to disco with The Strokes. Finishing the night off with a spot of Coldplay with sparkly fireworks and large multi-coloured balls falling from the crimson-studded sky. Total contentedness and a sprinkling of serendipitous lyrics to complete yet another amazing adventure with Miss Tarrah of Tiree. I love summertime, lying on a grassy marshland listening to my favourite bands. Where will the next adventure take us….?
