Festivalitis

You know what I love about the summer, a part from the sunny weather? .... All the summer events that take place. There is soooo much happening. There is too much happening as a matter of fact.

From this weekend on in Belgium there are multiple music festivals going on every weekend until september. E.g. this weekend you could choose for Graspop , a metal festival (80000 people); the city parade , a techno parade (300000 people); TW Classic (25000 people), etc etc. And of course you can go to multiple "braderies" with traffic free commercial streets and animation that always go on at the end of June across Belgium. Or if you crossed the border you'd go to the Hague where the free Parkpop music festival celebrated its 25th anniversary and drew a crowd of 350000 people.
And next weekend, you'll have a similar choice again. Don't you worry, several websites offer you festival search facilities and calenders :-). so you can find large scale events or very cute small scale events.

What I often wonder.... how come that so many people are on those festivals, and that it's still so crowded in the cities and at the beaches etc as well???

The great offer makes it difficult to actually to agree upon a festival or activity with friends!! And it gives me a hard time as I want to travel as well and relax in the sun as well on. Life is tough in the summer!!
