The view from the tent on Sunday morning

This festival only takes place once a year, and it was cancelled both in 2012 and 2013, so the incredible timing of me coming here just when the festival happened was just perfect. Me and my newfound friends rented a tent from the backpackers hostel in town and set out for the lake on Friday. The ride took us something like four hours in total, even though it is not very far, and for the bulk of that time I had two paper boxes of live baby chickens in my lap, chirping away. 'Just a minibus full of chicks heading for the festival', hilarious.

And the festival really was right on the beach, with a very (or so I imagine) caribbean feeling. And so was the campsite. Three small stages, a handful of bars serving 'green' for MK800 a bottle (~15kr) and some food and market stalls. Just lovely to dance to a great range of music, whilst having the feet embedded in the white beach sand. The audience was a mix of backpackers from abroad, volunteers and locals. Good times!
