Calexico Coming to Vida Festival

Calexico Vida FestivalGosh, I had just finished writing the piece on St. Vincent coming to the Vida Festival when, bam! another e-mail waiting in my inbox announcing the news that Calexico are also joining the Vida Festival next year. Mini-piece on it, here. Tbh, no idea who they are, so I’ll have to do quite a lot of research on them if I intend to appreciate their concert a bit.

Franz Ferdinand Confirmed for the Vida Festival

franz ferdinand vida festivalYet again, it seems that I will be updating Hipsterian’s website with the Vida Festival 2018 announcements. This time, Franz Ferdinand as part of the festival’s fifth edition line-up. Only this weekend I got the accommodation as an advanced Christmas present so, yes, I’ll certainly be attending the fest without having to suffer any of those transport ordeals I went through last year. More on this to come soon!

Vida Festival 2018: First Act Confirmed

nick mulvey vida festivalScarcely had my last review on the Vida Festival 2017 appeared published when I was already being asked to write about the confirmation of the first act (some Nick Mulvey that I’ll have to do some research into) and a little summary on this year’s festival attendance as well as the release of the first tickets for next year at a reduced price here. Does this mean I’ll be covering the Vida Festival as a press member? No idea, but I do know that I already have my ticket for next year, and that I’ll be renting a hotel room for those days, seeing the deplorable experience I had this year with the Monbus coaches.

Vida Festival Review Items

Marem Ladson Latest Addition to Vida Festival

vida horariosWhile it’s true that I was aware that Vida Festival was involved in some sort of program for young talents, I got to truly know about it when I was asked to write this piece on the latest addition to the Vida Festival line-up: Marem Ladson. She’s been added for Thursday, the day that I was planning to spend the whole time at the Estrella Damm stage. Let’s see if/how this addition is going to affect my initial plans.  Whatever I do, it’s an artist worth checking out.

Getting Ready for the Vida Festival

vida horariosHaving been officially confirmed that I will be covering the Vida Festival as a press member, I’ve been juggling with the schedules, transport, and what my survival kit will consist of, as it’s not a festival that you could say takes place round the corner. Vilanova i la Geltrú is rather well communicated but if you have to depend on public transport and you can’t reach your house using it in less than 2h 30′ at least, as is my case, living in Badalona, there are a few important issues that must be taken care of before leaving for the fest. This and other aspects are what I talk about in this article published yesterday by Hipsterian Circus.
