Sunday was the yearly parkpop festival in Den Haag. I had planned to go with Roondar, but he called in sick the day before, but I decided to check it out anyway. Sadly it had been raining for most of the morning, and the afternoon didn’t bring any better weather to the park. When I arrived at the park I bumped into a collegue, but during the rest of the afternoon I didn’t spot any familiar people. I didn’t get to see many bands playing as the lineup couldn’t keep me interested, so after some walking back and forth between the 3 stages and the market-area I got fed-up with the continuing rain and headed back home to check out some movies.
All in all I got the impression that Parkpop is slipping a bit, I had the feeling there were less people, the setup of the stages and market was different, the bikers weren’t there and the lineup didn’t have any interesting big names.
Bart did call me to tell me he had a spare ticket to Pearl Jam, so i’ll be back at the Goffertpark thursday to get my ears blown out again.
