I want to take you to my Pinkpop Sunday today. Not because the photos are so great, not because you love that music so much, not because this post is so interesting to read. No, I actually write this for myself, because I want to have this memory on my blog.
We went to Pinkpop last Sunday. What is Pinkpop, most foreign readers will think. Pinkpop is the longest running festival in the world! in the south of the Netherlands. And it is for three days in a row. This year was an anniversary year, for the 50th time Pinkpop was held. I would also loved to be there on the Monday, Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, Fleetwood Mac and The Pretenders, but you can’t have it all right! And for which band did I came? Yes, The Cure!
We went to Pinkpop in 2012 for the first time, also for The Cure. I was still working back then and really wanted to go there. I asked for a day off, and didn’t get it because it was a commercial day (Saturday) and then the executives always had to work. It really upset me, because I wanted to see The Cure so badly! (and I was a mess back then!)Before I had asked for the day off, I was told by my pulmonologist that I had to report sick, you can read all about it here. After I had asked for the day off, I had to go to the pulmonologist again and after that I reported sick and I could go to Pinkpop! Haha, big finger to my supervisor then.
My Pinkpop Sunday 2019
Now, seven years later, I visited Pinkpop in the wheelchair and have to use oxygen. But I enjoyed it no less. Firstly, things for the disabled are arranged so well at such a festival, and secondly, I really intended to enjoy it enormously. I can always worry terribly about what people will not think of me and that kind of idiotics. But we really enjoyed it. And it was very busy! Can you guess how the toilets looked like at 3.00 at night! I spare you the details!
Do you visit festivals? We have a festival weekend planned in July again! I love to go to concerts, besides, a great festival is so relaxed. Let me know where you are going.
I apologize for the poor photos. Made quickly and with little attention to quality. With these days it is your own memory that makes the photos live, but I understand that they are of little interest to you.
I would really appreciate it if you would share my outfit on Pinterest! Just hoover over the photo!
Such a pity you didn’t get to see The Cure (never heard of them) Heard of Lenny Kravitz though, haha! Great that you had a good time at Pinkpop!
I did get to see The Cure Yvonne! It was amazing!
What fun and how cool – the longest running music festival – wow! I love The Cure!
Me too! It was fabulous to see them again!
Oh wow, Nancy! You got to see The Cure! I know they are your favorite!!!! I am a bit jealous! I love music festivals but haven’t been able to attend many. I need to start making it a point to get to a few this summer. I am so glad you had such a great time! Thanks for sharing the experience with us.
You should be! They are fabulous! Haha
it’s great you got to go again and see the band you wanted! 🙂
Hope you’re having a great start to your week 🙂 It’s a more relaxed week this week after a busy week last week!
Ik ben er vlakbij geboren en nog nooit geweest! The Cure speelde verdomde goed zeg!
Echt! Oh Sonja, het is zo leuk daar! Maar ook wel heel heel erg druk!
What a wonderful time…music is so good for us. I used to be a huge the Cure fan!!
They played a fantastic list!
How absolutely thrilling that you got to see The Cure. Although I haven’t followed them recently, I used to be a big fan of their first few albums. Does Robert Smith still have the scarecrow hair?
Oh yes Ann, only a bit more grey and a bit less hair!
Wow Nancy this sounds like a great event. 🙂
It is, it’s fabulous!
I used to love the Cure back in the day! So glad you had a good experience this year. I’ve never been to a pop festival but I would love to go. Thanks for joining #WowOnWednesday!
You should! And you have the amazing Glastonbury!!
I’m so glad you finally got to go, Nancy! I love going to see bands play, but I cannot handle crowds at festivals – I have to be in a seat with my own personal space. I actually fainted last summer at a really crowded venue and had to be carried out!
I love the Cure – we just watched their induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and they were awesome. I’ve been a fan of them since 1985.
Oh really!!! Wow, I am a fan since 1980! That is my number one band!!
Lekker editie weer hè? 🙂
Ik heb drie dagen genoten.
Oh echt? Ahteraf had ik eigenlijk ook heel graag de maandag gewild! Hoe was Slash?
I am not a big fan of festival because of the craziness but I love the Cure! So glad that you continue to go every year. The Cure is such a great band!
It is! But it was extremely busy and we don’t like a crowd at all!
I haven’t heard about this festival before, but I’m a fan of summer festivals. It’s great to listen to music in the open especially when it’s music by a bend we love. It’s great you were able to attend this Pink Pop festival again even. It’s wonderful you were able to enjoy it, even if it took oxygen and wheelchair to get you there. People can be judgmental towards people with disability but that is all the more reason for them to be around and about. It probably helps to break the stigma. Sick people need to have fun too! So lovely you got to see The Cure!
Ha, you are absolutely right! And The Cure was fantastic! As always!
You had so much fun!!
Have a great day! xx

Haha, they are so fabulous!
