\\\ KosmiK FestiF TouR - Summer 2014///
June 19-22 – The Groove, Midway, BC
Starting on the Solstice weekend, I didn't know what the expect, but I had been wanting to go for while. I liked their Star War theme maybe ;)
I was supposed to help out with a renegade stage there but it didn't happen, so I ended up playing the Main Stage on Sunday.
June 26-30 – Bushwacked Festival, Beaverdell, BC
What a lovely gathering! It's just the right size festival to make you feel at home almost everywhere...because there is a lot of really nice people there. I was there to help with decor and play a set on Friday night at 7pm, which was so much fun! What started as a very small dance floor because it had started raining a bit...ended up with a nice crowd and a clear sky! Pretty much felt as if the good intentions of the ppl was clearing the sky :)
Here is where you can find a LIVE recording of my set. It's definitely not perfect. A lot of first time plays and cdjs...but I'm releasing it any way...I kept hearing about my set during the whole festival...what a great feeling. Thank you everybody!
