finally some tour diary… we got invited to play on fusion festival 2012. pretty exciting and a really nice experience.

so we squeezed us and all our equipment into a few cars and drove all the way up to the north of germany with some tents in the back having a great time. with us were some friends traveling, including photographer juli sing (www.julising.net). some photos from her are coming soon on here.

but here is some pictures from the vivian void tour cam for you first:

it was a long, long way up… as lärz. where the fusion festival took place is about 600 km away for us, we had to have loads of stops to break the journey up a bit. nice enough to take some photographs after having a pee and watching some trucks being lazy.

juli took many photos during that weekend. and we kept taking some of her while doing that. fair enough.

arriving in lärz we had to stop right infront of the festival area because a bigger storm came. we had to be calm, had some beers, put some more clothes on, waiting for a while… all fine.

after putting all the tents up we put our flip flops on and wandered around. nina wasn’t allowed to get in touch with too much sun at that time so she had to carry this massive black umbrella around. you can’t exactly see how big it was, hm. it was though, honestly.

having some sort of lunch snack and sorting the map out was on of the first things to do. this year about 80000 people came to visit the festival. the area is private and indescribably huge. phone network didn’t work most of the time so we had a lot of fun finding each other. we ended up meeting by accident what turned out not being a problem at all. as the food there was amazing it was most likely to find one of the girls at one of these super-delicious snack bars anyway. easy.

sebastian traveled with us and did the sound for us. it is still nameless how much patience he had. thank you very much, sir.

here is a group photo. nothing more to say really next to the fact that everyone looks brilliant.

the shower situation was a bit funny. we all love camping (more or less) but when the showers just did have cold water left and no water at some point some of us got quite grumpy.

after we played our show we had a lovely night until the next storm came and nearly blew our tents away. scary scenery, but short enough to not get a heart attack. no one got struck by lightning or such a thing. phewee. well done.

there is many different kind of areas. most people said we shouldn’t miss the “bachstelzen” area. was not too exciting though. go there next year and explore it yourself and tell us what you think.

this was quite a regular scenery. nothing wrong with that, hehe.
