Hi again, greetings from the "Bardentreffen", a free 3-day music festival that takes place every summer in the beautiful city of Nürnberg!
Over 50 artists/bands from many different countries played on 7 stages around the "Altstadt" - that was the "official" line-up - but there were also a lot of "unofficial" participants who just set up there instruments in other good spots around town, attracting smaller crowds but still entertaining a lot of people.
The weather was beautiful, the music great, the ice cream delicious and the people watching a riot! We listened to - among others - two Bavarian folk singers, who mixed stories about a Bavarian rebel and robber from a hundred years ago with satire on current American politics and a Brazilian band/singer that has been around for 40 years but didn't sound old at all! That's them in the picture behind me - have to work on my samba moves, I'm afraid ...
