Why did you choose this video? Can you explain a bit more about it? The feelings you had during this moment? What’s happening here?   

After being in lockdown for months I had the pleasure to work at the Back To Live Fieldlab test event with ID&T. I had been working behind the scenes for the better part of the day and during Reinier Zonneveld’s set, which was closing the day, we scheduled some time off for ourselves to enjoy the show as well. It was the first time in exactly a year I went to a proper party and even though it felt a bit awkward to be with so many people again, it was amazing. All day I had seen artists being super happy about being able to perform again and to stand among so many people going crazy was amazing.

The feeling of awkwardness faded soon, the energy of the crowd was just amazing and it was great  

The typical festival moments I can tick off are:  

Lost my passport

Drank my first beer before 11am

Been in the centre of a moshpit

Walked into the wrong tent

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
