We are here and our lounge is working. Basically, we could say it as simple as that. After an intense and hectic opening of KærligHeden (the camp site we are at, red.), we luckily managed to complete our small SoundOfAarhus (SOA) lounge next to the LiveCamp stage.
The festival itself started out really great – big up’s for the SmukFest organization and all the smilling volunteers. Due to the massive amount of people crammed together at the entrance of the KærligHeden campsite, the festival ended up cutting the line (or wire) between the people and the empty campsite already at 13.00 – an hour before the scheduled time. That said, it was a brilliant sight to see all the people run as if their lives depended on that specific spot on the campsite.
After installation-of-camp time was over a minor shower from above decided to enter the campsite, but the best thing about a festival-camp like this is the look on people’s faces when the sun hit the sky again. It seemed as if the rain made people remember how great sunshine really is. Furthermore it made people forget about beer-bowling and camp-soundtracks for a while and set out to experience some of the upcoming acts at the LiveCamp area located near the lake.
Sunday, we’ve had the pleasure of hosting interviews with several interesting acts; Hooha, Monkey Okay, Nonsens, Xolo Island and Chinah. It has been such a good time talking with these bands, and we can’t wait to continue the talks with more acts today!
Videos will follow in short time, and here you’ll experience nice talks and Underberg drinking – it turns out, some musicians loves Underberg, some doesn’t. It might be a genre thing, though? Anyway, you’ll also be able to see pics of our lounge on Instagram and Facebook. We love the way it turned out, and we couldn’t have made it without the help from REUSE Aarhus.
Our lounge is placed right next to the Live Camp stage, and from hear we are able to witness all the acts. To be honest, some of the acts are quite new to us, some we’ve been listening to for a while, but the over all level has been good, and we gotta say, it’s not so bad to have a lounge arrangement so close to the stage.
