Baroeg Open Air 2018
For the people from abroad, Baroeg Open Air is a small Dutch festival with a line-up with metal, experimental electronic music and goth music. The festival is popular among goths, but there are also many other kinds people there, like emoes, metalheads, Dutch casual ravers and even some mainstream people.
At Baroeg Open Air, I pretty much always show up a little bit to a lot later than the opening time because I most of the time mainly go to the festival for one band, last year it was Grendel, this year it was Covenant. Aside from that my planning for these festivals is pretty loose. Kind of the opposite from WGT really, where I tend to plan my days way too packed, resulting in sensory overloads, but are worth it in the end. If I feel like seeing a band, I go for it, if I feel like shopping I just go shopping and sometimes I just felt like sitting down and watching people.
I ended up seeing [KRTM], a small part of the Dead Cvlt (of which I can’t/couldn’t find any music of, so if anyone knows how I can check out more music of the band, please let me know), Audio and of course Covenant.
I really noticed the effects of the beloved beer and weed at the festival. People were very open at the festival and behaved a little bit weirder than usual. The weirdest person was the ‘my wife has green eyes’ guy and how he connected this sentence to the fact I wore a black and green cybergoth outfit that day. I don’t think I have to explain I was very clueless about what he was trying to say to me. But really nothing that weird.
All in all, Baroeg Open Air was a lot of fun.
Oh and @denisealblas is the person I hung out with at both this year’s and last year’s Baroeg Open Air.

Still buzzing from our official debut show with The Dead Cvlt at BOA last Saturday.
Don't get me wrong. I love to DJ but rocking out with a band of brothers like this has always been my first love. Feels great to be back at it!
It's my birthday today! Guess how old I am now 🎈
