Summerfolk 38 has passed. By any standard, this year’s festival was a huge success. There were more people, more sunshine and more musical highlights per hour than ever before.
At the office we are busy putting things away, toting figures and generally catching our breathe.
A big shout-out to all the volunteers, to the staff and to the fantastic musicians who fearlessly stepped up to the stage and gave it their all.
You’ll find a ton of photo’s and comments over at out official Facebook page.
See you next year!
They were out on the site working on Saturday morning. They have in years past worked in rainier conditions, but the work is hard dry or wet. They are banging together stages and pounding in poles. Raising canvas and stringing wire. The sound equipment and the food vendors and the 48 artisans roll in over the next few days. The musicians, pretty much the same.
By Friday night, that tent above will be hopping to the sounds of Alex Cuba and Cécile Doo Kingué. People are going to meet Té and Jorge Miguel.
All that happens because 700 volunteers work like crazy to host a 38 year old tradition called Summerfolk.
