We arrive at the festival one week before it starts and search in the chaos of busy people and building sites for our friend Robby and his italian crew. Having found our crew camp area we drive Little Mate to our new home for the next two weeks. Which is in the middle of the festival site and directly next to the Art Gallery – perfect circumstances for a profound reportage 🙂
We have a interesting and fun week, making new friends, photographing and seeing a big festival in the making and coming together through hundreds of motivated people!
In the dark we bump into three super nice dutch guys. We get along perfectly immediately. Serhan, Martijn and Niels turn out to be the official film makers for the festival and we have a lot to share. We all go on a big hike the next day to ‘play’ with our toys and get some pictures and footage of the surrounding area for the movie.
You can see Serhan’s and Matijn’s last festival movie here. We are very excited to see the 2017 movie!! 🙂
The festival is great and it’s a really nice vibe at the festival. The art gallery is for us the most beautiful place. The best psychedelic Artists show their (3D) art in an incredible athmosphere which our crew created in the gallery space. There is also a lot of live acts painting, graffiting and doing body art outside of the gallery during the whole festival.
The best moment is when Robby starts playing some super trippy Psy in the art gallery during the official one hour music break. Within minutes people go crazy dancing and ‘translating’ the art on the walls 🙂
Here you can see some more of our pictures from the festival 🙂
And also, if you are interested in the art and maybe wanna buy some prints for your home, check at Art Collider.
Oh yes, i nearly forgot!! We bought our first legal medicinal marihuana in an official shop at the festival!!
We love you Switzerland! 😀
