Hey there readers – Katie P here – now one third of my way through my 30 festival adventure around the globe. Every week I've visited a different destination and had my fill of a fun new festival experience.
Week nine saw me head to Croatia for the stunning Soundwave Festival – a non-stop party hosted right on the water's edge among the pine trees and stars of the Dalmatian coastal region of the country. The stages saw everything from freestyle poetry, to gentle acoustics and experiment flute-playing to hard and heavy beats and night time basslines. I was joined by two Trident competition winners – two French UK residents – and we spent four days lapping up the sunshine, dancing the night away in warm and smiley surroundings and snorkelling in the sea. Ahh, it's a tough life.
For week ten, I braved UK soil for the tenth anniversary of the infamous Global Gathering festival near Stratford. Thousands of merry revellers gathered in the neon-filled fields for a weekend of dance and electronic fun from over 150 different DJs and artists. Special mention goes out to Chew Lips, Chase & Status, Jaguar Skills, Tinie Tempah, The Bloody Beetroots and Dizzee Rascal for making it an eclectic and fun-filled weekend in the English countryside.
Over the course of the next few weeks, I’ll head off to Paris and Bulgaria for more international fun, as well as kicking back and hanging at Beautiful Days in Devon.
