took my little dude to his first festival: Couleur café in Brussels center. Charlie was mainly wondering, often smiling, and … beautifully sleeping (see this photo). Damn, I love my dude and my little Femke.
Next festival was Belgium’s most crowded one (4 days, 80.000 every day) – the Rock Werchter festival. First time ever the festival felt so ‘international’. Talked with Dutch, German, English and Italian visitors – really refreshing after being confronted with the local Belgian politics for the moment… Looks like the Belgian political generation has lost all of its assets: listening, adapting, working together, enjoying life and some common sense…
Anyway, my top TOP5 of the 2008 Werchter edition (at Jeroen’s request):
2. Gnarles Barkley (surprise of the festival for me!)
3. Neil Young (with this amazing version of Heart of gold)
5. Zita Swoon
Few ‘musical’ discoveries, but loads of fun, great to see back a lot of friends, and spending time with J&J, my festivalbuddies for the last … 10 years I guess.
Now taking a few days off, then leaving for some time to SanFrancisco, but doing all to come back to the wedding of one of my friends.
Looking really forward to discovering and creating over there – and meeting quite some friends in the coming weeks. First time ever I am not going to Sillicon valley for a couple of days, but for a longer period and working, creating and discovering with people over there. And taking my little family with me all the time!
Keep you posted of what we’re up to .
