Music Festivals in the best country in Europe – how does that sound?
Thomas… I need to find an excuse to get out of Copenhagen and visit you. If I crash at Tings isn’t there a festival near you in 2018 with interesting music I can go to nearby? Any suggestions? Allan Christensen on FacebookI don’t remember the number of Music festivals I have been to in my life – in and outside Denmark. But its a LOT! So a few days ago – when I got this message from my friend Alan in Copenhagen – I got a lot of flash backs to all the bands and parties I have seen and joined since my first Roskilde Festival back in 1977. [caption id="attachment_38616" align="alignright" width="135"] Most international bands touring Europe visit Portugal Like Bob Dylan who plays in Lisbon in March[/caption] Its funny, I don’t miss them anymore. At least not the ones in Denmark where the weather is just too unpredictable. But I miss the music. That’s when I realized that besides the fantastic weather, the beautiful country, the good food and the cheap prizes we have one more advantage living here. All the bands and music events that tour Europe each summer also hits Portugal. The coming months will get visits from Roger Waters, Metallica, Bob Dylan, LCD Sound System, Ozzy Osbourne, Arcade Fire and a lot of other international superstar acts. Check them out on Viagogo. So Allan’s idea about combining a Lisbon visit to Tings with a couple of days of music instead of the usual muddy and rainy events in Denmark is excellent! I promised to get back to Alan after New Year with relevant festivals. So just spend the morning checking out the possibilities. So Allan – this ones for you Thomas
