Belgium 18th of September 2009
I took the train at about 3pm towards Ozzy, He picked me up from the train station in Dordrecht after work. We went to his house (I’m staying there tonight), got ready and left again, we went to Maccy D for dinner.
At about 9.30 we arrived at the festival. Well, it was really funny, cos it was a festival in the middle of a village. The Streets dressing room was an school class (Mike said that on Twitter). Anyway we met up with Laurence and we went to the box office, to collect the tickets. They had to get new wrist bands, so we had to wait a little.
When we got through the gate, I text Ted saying thanks. We got ourselves a drink and we went to the tent where The Streets would play. We listened to Das Pop, very popular in Belgium, but I don’t know them, just the name sounded familiar… when they finished, we went to the front, and Laurence found her place right at the front, I decided to push a little and I got to the front as well. Ozzy pushed as well, and we were all 3 up front. very tight tho, no space to move, but that’s probably cos there was a girl who was sitting on the fence, when she got off the fence, I moved her away so we had more space…. I did not care, if she had enough space, ‘cos we had haha. Anything to be comfortable.
Mike came on…
Through the whole gig. There were a lot of people smoking weed, yes you can still smoke inside in Belgium, not everywhere anymore tho. but you could in that tent. Mike had to say that I’m from a country where they do that a lot. LOL! Great gig!! I had a really good time, enough space to jump about,
He screamed TED!! next to my ear. What for?…. and loads of little girls screaming in my ear…. oh well, I was like that as well when I was young.
At the end of the gig, we got a few drinks and we went to the side of the stage… there it was more quiet, and we saw Magic. We had a little chat about a lot of things.
I also asked him if I could hire him for my 30th birthday, I would love Magic to DJ for me. Anyways… he said he liked it! (It never happened tho…) Then after a while he left to get another beer and that he would get the boys to say hello. So after a few minutes he came back with Skinner & Mayhem. I could thank Ted personally for sorting me out for Birmingham & this festival. I said hello to Mike. Mike couldn’t get through the gate cos he had a glass in his hand, but it was nice of him to say hello. He gave me a cuddle.
When the boys left again, I thought we’d better leave as well, cos I don’t want to look like a stalker. And it was late already and I had a family day the next day.
So we said goodbye to Laurence and we left, we had about 2 hours drive to get back to Ozzy‘s house. We arrived there at 4am in the morning… God how to survive that family day tomorrow? I found out by a message of Cassell on FaceBook that he came out to say hello as well, but I was gone already.
Damn I should have listened to Ted…. “Don’t go to bed too early!”
I cant wait to see the boys in Solana Beach (near San Diego, USA) next month.
The next day Ozzy dropped me off in Reeuwijk for the family day.
