Festivals are my kind of ideal escape from my repetitive and sometimes boring daily life. This year, I chose to go to Summer Well Festival for the second time in a row as I absolutely loved the 2014 edition. It was the best decision ever.
As always, it was held in Buftea (not far from Bucharest) at Domeniul Stirbey, a place that suits the festival vibe perfectly. Everything is surrounded by nature, making this location a great opportunity to relax and detach from the busy town routine.
Oh, the features it came with! An outdoor cinema screening biographies of Kurt Cobain and David Bowie, an abstractly lit maze that seemed out of this world, tons of merch boutiques, food courts selling delicious burgers and a variety of other dishes, neverending drink stocks… Basically everything you need in two unforgettable days!
Obviously, the festival wouldn’t be complete without good music. The bands this year were beyond amazing! I just fell in love with them more after hearing them live, it makes such a difference!
Day 1 ~ proving my patience, I stayed very close to the stage during the first four performances. Moreover, I had the chance to be in the very front row for the fifth and last band (my favourite one), Foals!
Day 2 ~ in comparison with the first day, I backed off a little bit and explored the sights. Nevertheless, I still have some pictures of the artists (even though the quality is not the best)!
There’s something about Summer Well, it makes me miss it for a whole year until its next edition. The atmosphere is so unique, reuniting so many types of people, from children and teenagers to adults, from normal citizens to celebrities, all of them being one big family. Definitely looking forward to 2016’s line-up! See you soon, Summer Well!
