Summer Well – a festival like a holiday

 

Summer Well 2016 was our first music festival and we told you in this post how much we liked it. This year we attended the festival again and we will repeat this experience for many years to come because we love good music, the festival atmosphere and the beautiful people gathered here.

“A festival like a vacation” is the motto of the Summer Well and although is just near Bucharest, it makes you feel like you step “into another world.”  #goodvibesonly in the air, live music, smiles everywhere you turn your head, cool and colorful outfits, a relaxed atmosphere, perfect to run away from routine and feel great.

This year we received our first press accreditation at a festival and we were very happy that it happened at Summer Well 🙂

This year the festival started Friday with Bucharest Symphony Orchestra concert, who played one song from each band from Summer Well’ line up. We didn’t know what to expect, but as soon as we stepped on the grass surrounding the scene and heard the notes, we  felt the magic. And we don’t exaggerate when we say that, such moments we saw only in movies. We wouldn’t expected that a symphonic orchestra to make such a show, it was just brilliant what happened on stage.

In the next two days we had the opportunity to discover artists that we love but also new names. Whatever musical genre you prefer, it’s impossible not to like at least one band of those on the SW stage. Last year we were just obsessed with Hurts, and this year our absolute favorite was Birdy. We also discovered the band Oh Wonder, that from now has a special place in our playlists.

We were mesmerized during Birdy’s performance, thousands of people stood still and didn’t even felt the rain, we were all under the influence of a spell. At some point it seems that we all hold our breath to hear better the perfect voice of this young talented singer. At 21 years she has an amazing voice and her lyrics seems very mature, but she’s also very emotional and warm.

Besides music, all the festival activations were super cool. You can discover new gadgets, relax in nice places, you can even watch movies, you can take pictures in all kinds of special fancy corners, you can do sports- yoga, paddle board, bicycle, flying fox, you can even fly with a hot air balloon, you can win prizes and many other unique activities.

We look forward to 2018 Summer Well edition and you should not miss it, too because it will be amazing for sure.

Anul trecut am fost pentru prima oara la un festival de muzica si v-am povestit in aceasta postare despre cat de tare ne-a placut la Summer Well 2016, caci da, acesta a fost primul nostru festival. Anul acesta am repetat experienta si cred ca o sa o tot repetam multi ani de acum incolo pentru ca iubim muzica buna, atmosfera de festival si oamenii care se aduna aici.

“Un festival ca o vacanta” e motto-ul celor de la Summer Well si desi domeniul Stirbey e doar la o aruncatura de bat de Bucuresti, de cum treci pragul, simti ca pasesti in alta lume. In aer se simt #goodvibesonly, pe toata durata festivalului ai parte de muzica live buna, zambete oriunde intorci capul, tinute care mai de care mai cool, culoare si multa veselie, o atmosfera relaxata, perfecta pentru a evada timp de trei zile din rutina si a te simti minunat. Ne-am bucurat enorm ca anul acesta am primit acreditare pentru presa, aceasta a fost prima noastra acreditare ever la un festival si am fost foarte fericite ca a venit tocmai la Summer Well 🙂

Spre deosebire de anul trecut, anul acesta festivalul a inceput de vineri cu un concert sustinut de Orchestra Simfonica Bucuresti, care a interpretat cate o melodie de la fiecare formatie prezenta la Summer Well. Nu stiam la ce sa ne asteptam, insa de cum am pasit pe iarba ce inconjoara scena si am auzit cateva acorduri ale Orchestrei, ni s-a parut magic. Si nu exageram deloc cand spunem asta, doar in filme mai vazusem astfel de momente. Nu ne-am fi asteptat niciodata ca o orchestra care canta muzica simfonica sa realizeze un asemenea show. O sa vedeti mai multe in vlogul pe care urmeaza sa il postam, a fost o seara ce ne doream sa nu se mai termine, ni s-a parut mult prea scurt totul. Speram ca parteneriatul dintre Summer Well si Orchestra sa fie unul de lunga durata si sa-i vedem si la anul pentru ca a fost pur si simplu genial ce s-a intamplat pe scena.

In celelalte doua zile avut ocazia sa descoperim atat artisti pe care ii indragim, cat si nume noi pentru care am facut o adevarata pasiune. Muzica buna e la ea acasa la Summer Well. Indiferent ce gen preferi, e imposibil sa nu iti placa cel putin o trupa din cele care urca pe scena.  Daca anul trecut am facut pur si simplu o obsesie pentru Hurts, anul asta preferata noastra absoluta a fost Birdy. Dar am descoperit si trupa Oh Wonder, care de acum incolo are un loc asigurat in playlist-urile noastre. De asemenea, ne-a placut si show-ul facut de Nothing but Thieves si Editors.

Ni s-a parut pur si simplu ireal momentul lui Birdy, atatia mii de oameni stateau nemiscati si nici macar nu simteau stropii de ploaie, parca eram toti sub efectul unei vraji. La un moment dat nu se mai auzea niciun sunet, lucru foarte rar intalnit pe parcursul festivalului si parca toti ne tineam respiratia, in aer plutea doar vocea suava a acestei tinere cu talent nemasurat. Nu ne vine sa credem ca la 21 de ani are asa o voce si scrie asemenea versuri, pare foarte matura si serioasa, dar in acelasi timp foarte emotiva si calda. A fost minunat momentul ei, ne-a transpus parca intr-o alta lume.

Dupa vocea suava a lui Birdy au urmat Glass Animals, iar solistul acestei formarii parea argintul viu, cum ar fi zis bunica. Nu a stat locului nici macar o secunda, a sarit incontinuu, a dansat, a mers chiar si in public, a fost clar cel mai antrenant show de anul acesta.

In afara de muzica, pe tot domeniul sunt o multime de activari super cool. Descoperi gadget-uri noi, te relaxezi in locuri superbe- te poti uita chiar si la filme in aer liber intr-un corner amenajat de Orange, iti poti face fotografii in tot felul de spatii special amenajate, poti testa o multime de feluri noi de mancare (asta in caz ca nu esti vegan, acolo nu prea ai deloc optiuni, dar speram sa se schimbe lucrul asta la anul 😀 ), poti face sport- yoga, paddle board, pedalare pe bicicleta, tiroliana, poti zbura chiar si cu balonul cu aer cald, poti castiga premii si multe alte activitati inedite.

Anul asta am fost la festival alaturi de prieteni noi: Nico de la Stilistul 112 si vechi: Rux si sotul ei alaturi de care ne-am distrat si am petrecut clipe minunate.

Asteptam cu nerabdare Summer Well editia 2018 si va sfatuim sa nu o ratati pentru ca va fi cu siguranta uimitoare.

    Cred ca muzica de acolo nu ar fi pe stilul meu, dar sincera sa fiu…as merge o data…macar pentru atmosfera grozava care este!
