Belgium Gothic Festival in July (Covenant, 242, Ebb, etc)

Probably a little early to be posting about this, but not for me, as I am currently booking details to attend being I will be coming from the States. Best to take care of these things early, to account for that inevitable unknown variable that is certain to pop up, heh...

So, having said that:

*Am wondering who all is attending this for certain besides myself. Had such a fun time meeting up with forum members in Poland so of course I would like to do that again. :)
I will be arriving in Belgium on the 26th and I think I will be flying home from there on the 31st.

*Have the ticket/voucher, and now am looking at accommodations, train lines, airports, etc. There are hotels listed on the website for the festival and I would like to know where people have been thinking about staying. Don't know Belgium well at all being I was there only once a long time ago, so tips are welcome. ;) Also specifically was wondering what the best airport in Belgium would be to fly home from, considering the location of Waregem.

Don't mean to spam the forum with incessant questions, so please feel free to PM me or post here, whichever...

Thank you very much in advance- looking forward to meeting new people, and meeting up with other friends again. Hm, I wonder what the unofficial sponsor of *this* festival will be...? :D



***ahhhh I can't wait!!***

Ahhhhhh the lineup is really good! However, I will be in Europe from 18 July until 31 July, so alas I cannot attend. Can't get any more time off. :(
It would be super fun to hang out with you at a festival again though! I'm sure this will happen again at some point... :D

:cry:

I can't get any time off in July at all because the others in my team have already booked it (I do however get dibs on August - hence Summer Darkness!).
It would have been great to meet up again - Lodz was a laugh and a half.

Big hugs

Go International!

Following that advice, I leave for Germany (Amphi!) verrrrry early tomorrow morning. I have to be at the airport in 12 hours from posting this, in fact.

Then later on to Belgium for the Waregem festival... which I am beyond excited about.

Looking very forward to meeting with known friends, and meeting new ones for the first time. LadyKomachi, Elezium, you will be with me in spirit and I will especially think of you when One World One Sky and/or Bullet are played. :D

Vorbedacht, you'll definitely be with me in spirit as I'm cd shopping for you!



Now, back to running around the house tying up last minute details... :-]

Is anyone camping there? The girls have hotel rooms but I want to do it oldschool-style and stay in my tent all weekend! :D

I would be glad to camp with other fellow fans!

Please send me a PM to arrange something. :)

why not try to contact jan, mastermind of diskonnekted, with that question? perhaps they're recording the show themself, and he's quite an accessible guy, quite active on the dependent-forum

yeah, I know, thanks. It was half a joke and half a sigh on how I would love to see this gig
- and the third half was that I want a recording, hehe :D :D

FYI

Please note: time schedule changed at Gothicfestival!!!

Because the private jet of Kiew will arrive later than expected, it looks like Diskonnekted has to switch their position on the time schedule.

So in this 'worst case scenario' we will start our gig at 2.40 PM at the club stage. Damn early indeed.

We hope to see you there!

And hopefully Kiew won't have a jetlag.

private jet?? 8o hm, next time maybe they could be so kind to pick up some fans on their way if they're late anyway. Or are they late because they want to stop over at McFly to pick up some burgers and beer :D

Everyone who's going to the festival: have a fun time.
Having seen a great F242 gig at daylight at Amphi, I would expect the show in Belgium to blast you away :perfekt:

Covenant were absolutely fantastic! Best show of the band I´ve seen for a long time! And let me just say that Daniel adds a lot to the music... his percussions for i.e. Figurhead were amazing!

Here`s the setlist:
01. Monochrome
02. Bullet
03. 20 Hz
04. Go Film
05. Figurehead
06. Invisible and Silent
07. The Men
08. We stand alone
09. Ritual Noise
10. Stalker
11. Call the ships to Port
---
12. Happy Man

***yes!***


The show really was fantastic and Daniel's percussion does add a new dimension to the music that is ~wonderful~.

See, I'm not even very articulate because I'm so impressed. ;)

But yes- his drumming, particularly on The Men, added so much depth to an already excellent performance. Mesmerizing stuff. Will stop because am gushing now. Have post-festival happy glow. :cool: :tongue: :D
