The weather has been particularly kind to me during my first week in the Netherlands, so what better way to spend a sunny long weekend than to attend the famous Pinkpop Festival in Landgraaf. The festival has been held annually since 1970, and a quick browse through the list of performers over the past 42 years tells me why it is so popular. Journey, Fleetwood Mac, Rage Against the Machine, Pearl Jam, Chemical Brothers, Jeff Beck, Foo Fighters, Joe Cocker… the big draw card for me this year was The Cure, possibly my favourite band of all time. I can’t begin to explain how amazing it was to see them live. I won’t lie… I shed a few (happy) tears. But more them when I get my B&W film developed :)
