First off, some great news: We have awesome plans with the infamous U-komitea for this year's Olohuone 306,4 km² festival in Turku. These were actually confirmed this week and will be announced shortly. Olohuone takes place the first week of June and is spreading all over Turku with multiple events. The main idea of the festival is to host unordinary events in ordinary public places. The public space belongs to us, the citizens - I guess that's what the Olohuone is after, and that's what we at DWTF can relate 100% to.
Waiting for the summer, it's a good time to reminisce last year's Olohuone festival. For us, it was a dizzy affair:
Yes, that's me and Kimito Diskotek of Sussudio fame up there. I guess Pete is somewhere on the background, since he wasn't too fond of the heights. You wouldn't know it from the photo, but you can see half the town from the highest platform of Samppalinna's diving tower. And the view is quite spectacular from the lowest platform as well.
Vinylous (is that a word?) chaps that we are, we also had to carry two turntables up there and back. Yes, it could have been done easier. Much easier. A slipmat found it's way on to the swimming pool, the wind of changes was a constant threat for our poor needles... But would've it been that much fun otherwise? Hell no! It was an amazing experience, one that I'll never forget, to watch the sun go down and put on something like this:
Fleetwood Mac:Everywhere (Psychemagik Edit) by misterthee
Timeless quality. The Psychemagik edit was played an awful lot last summer, and definitely will be this summer as well. It's impossible to get bored with it. Just like warm summer evenings and Fleetwood Mac in general, then. See you at Olohuone in a month and a half!
