Music festival weekend Bospop!

Music festival weekend Bospop!

We went to a music festival last weekend. It was a fantastic weekend with amazing musicians. We had already been to Pinkpop this season. But Celina asked a few months ago if we wanted to join her and Paul and two other people (Paul’s neighbor Jeen, and a friend of their salsa dance class, Annette) for Bospop. Celina and Paul had rented a house for the weekend and had tickets for the festival also for the entire weekend. After we had seen the line up, we didn’t have to think twice about whether we wanted to join them.

On our way to the music festival

On Friday evening we first enjoyed a meal at a lake in the bungalow park. On Saturday morning we had a nice breakfast together. The bungalow park was really one from the eighties as you can see in the pictures. But that didn’t spoil the fun. Celina and Paul went to the festival to see Toto. They performed because Snow Patrol cancelled. After breakfast we went on our way to the music festival, which was about half an hour away. This festival is not as big as Pinkpop, although there were around 30,000 visitors on Sunday. There is also a, let’s say, somewhat older audience. But that makes it all a lot more pleasant and social.

The artists

And here you can see the program for the weekend because we haven’t seen all the bands. All the bands that we did see were equally fantastic. I can write the same about every artist, but that gets pretty boring. They were all very good and we greatly enjoyed a wonderful weekend. Gerben and I had never seen the bands we saw last weekend before. So we were surprised by some bands, never knew they were that good! I will also link you to my Instagram  for short impressions of the bands.

Skunk Anansie was amazing. My goodness what a energy Skin has! Foreigner was fantastic! They rock! Wow, didn’t expect that. Level 42 was amazing. Although I was never a fan, but the band is so good live! The Specials were good but I missed Ghost Town. Living Colour was very very good. And Joe Jackson.……wow……that man takes you in the song! Daryl Hall & John Oates were really a trip back to memory lane. Fabulous. Celina Paul and Annette stayed on the Saturday to see John Fogerty. They were totally exited the next morning! Sting cancelled on the Sunday sadly. Celina took a lot of photos to that you can see on her Facebook.

It was also fabulous arranged for the disabled, because I have to use a wheelchair for a festival, by Inter. A special parking space, a special entrance and a wheelchair podium. And that was right in front of the Main stage and quite close so it was double enjoyment.

If you are ever doubting to go or not go to a music festival….GO! It is amazing!

Would really appreciate it if you would share my outfit on Pinterest! Just hoover over the photo!

    Oh wow, Nancy, what an amazing lineup of artists! So many were huge in the 80’s so it’s kind of cool that your bungalow was all 80’s, too. Haha. It looks like you al had the most wonderful time! I want to come there and go festivaling with you! But what about Toto? You only mentioned them briefly. Did you get to see them?! I want to read about that!!!

      Haha, didn’t even think about the bungalow matching the lineup. We didn’t see Toto. Snow Patrol was going to end on the Friday and we all didn’t want to see them, so we didn’t have tickets for the Friday. But Snow Patrol cancelled and Toto came instead. And only Celina and Paul managed to buy the Friday tickets. There is a link to Celina’s Facebook page were you can see her photos! She thought they were amazing!

    Wat gezellig Nancy! Het is lang geleden dat ik naar een festival ben gegaan.

    I’ve only been to a festival once, back in the early 1990s. The problem is that I am not very good with crowds. I get claustrophobia. Also at that festival, I had to go to the toilet and couldn’t find my friends back afterwards. That was scary! But I’m envious that you got to see Skunk Anansie and The Specials. And Joe Jackson, but I saw him play in London in 1980, which was amazing. xxx
