Or: How I survived the dust desert of Berlin Treptower Park.
My sweeties, just like in 2015, this year’s Lollapalooza festival in Berlin was a must visit for me. And so I was fairly lucky, that Firestone invited me and my sweetie Fiona of The Dashing Rider, to spend those days at the festival as part of their #firestonemusictour. Raaad!
The thing nobody knew before? That it would be NO WAY like last year’s Lollapalooza in Berlin. When you could easily find your people again last year on the old hangar area of Berlin Tempelhof airport, this year, the area was just too huuuuge. It was a pain to find anyone again and I was asked by several strangers if I had seen this or that tall blonde guy. Sorry, with 140.000 people in total, this was just a tad too huge for my taste. And when you could walk back home after a day of concerts fairly clean last year, this year, you had turned into a big piece of black dust yourself. But no need to complain, really, I still had the BEST time there!
I saw wonderful bands like Tocotronic, New Order (WOW!), Bilderbuch, Milky Chance and of course Radiohead live and loved all of them so much! Also, the weather was DA BOMB, so I could wear the loveliest festival dresses all day long. I’m showing you my outfit from day 1 here, because I didn’t take a camera along on day two – the dust, you know?!
Anway, Lollapalooza is just one of my all time favourite festivals and I’m sure to be back next year! Can’t wait for you, #lollaberlin 2017!
