The craziest memory I had during a festival was: at the last festival I visited before the first lockdown: Appelsap 2019. At the reunion performance of The Opposites (and after lots of Appelsap drinks), we had the time of our life because all the songs reminded us of our teenage memories. With hits like ‘Broodje warm vlees, broodje bapao’ and ‘Licht uit’, this performance was the perfect end to a hot summer festival day.

The typical festival moments I can tick off are:
Drank my first beer before 11am
Been in the centre of a mosh pit
Walked into the wrong tent
Got sunburned on day one
Had my phone die while filming the endshow
Lost my voice
Pulled a weekender with less than 5 hours of sleep
Lost my friends
Stepped out of my comfort zone
Photobombed someone else’s group photo
