it's been a really long time ago since we wrote something on this blogspot. Meanwhile, a lot happened in our lives. The most important thing: we introduced ourselfs to the Lowlands Festival in Biddinghuizen.
Arrival at the campsite. It was lovely weather, so we had a good time with our tent-neighbours. Our dinner: we didn't have dinner I guess.
Start of the festival. We've seen:
The Pigeon Detectives: Not the BIG start we expected, but it was fun with a beer
Off The Record: 4 Belgian guys making music just with their voices: really incredible
The Wombats: Stupid britpoppy music from Liverpool. Really bad!
Holy Fuck: Amazing good psychedelic music from Canada! Canada for the win!
The Ting Tings: Not what we expected, really boring.
The Kooks: As expected, nice show, with good music. Luke Pritchard at his best!
Late Of The Pier: A very good English starter for Infadels. Great party!
Infadels: Lovely music, lovely music to start the night with.
Already tired. We've seen:
Ane Brun: Just very short, sounded ok, but not incredible.
Laura Marling: What a beautiful sound. Great way to start the day!
Gem: Not so special Dutch pop/rocky music.
Blood Red Shoes: Great duo by a brother and sister. Rocked!
Franz Ferdinand: Incredible way to see the Franz Ferdinand heroes: First time, front row!
Sex Pistols: Johnny Rotten and his men are too old. Stop playing music!!!
Boemklatsch: Great Dutch Dj-set. Big party!
Balkan-russen beats: Party the Balkan way!
Lucky Fonz III: Great Dutch surprise. Good starter!
Lykke Li: Quite good, not very interesting.
Black Mountain: Rocking psycho's!
Yeasayer: Psychedelic music from Brooklyn! Lovely!
MGMT: Didn't see much of it, because our friend was taken away from the festival by security for crowdsurfing!
Asakusa Jinta: Party the Japanese way!
dEUS: Just been there to wait for Editors
Editors: Perfection in it's best way.
We returned home, very tired, but with lots of great music experience!
