The Fantasy Fest Rijswijk

Today we kicked off the festival season with the Fantasy Fest Rijswijk , where The Flask , Rapalje Celtic Folk Music and Imbue played.

Sadly we were not able to stream music live on facebook but we did manage to get photographers there and post some short clips on our instagram page

In the coming week we wil share some more pictures. The short vids you can find here: https://www.instagram.com/celtcast/

The new Monthly Marker is…

As you may have noticed we’ve been quite busy bringing you updates and videos from the Fantasy Awards 18/19 this Friday, which is why we’re a bit late announcing the new Monthly Marker. A very perceptive listener may have noticed that we did actually program it into the the stream from the first of the month!

However, speaking of those Awards, it was awesome to see that our chosen band for this month’s marker, The Dolmen , was very successful this Friday, winning not only in the category ‘Best Live Act International’ but also ‘Best Album’ with ‘Wytches & Cunningfolk’ and it is from this album that we chose the song ‘Black is the Colour’ to highlight throughout March.

Taloch sings this Scottish traditional in his typical deep and raw voice, giving it a genuine and very emotional quality. The song, sounding very subdued, but in a good way, guides the listener through the feelings of the author (or singer) and transports you to the banks of the Clyde. The addition of the rest of the vocals nearing the end of the song lets you know that this is a feeling shared through time and space with anyone who has ever felt a love like this.

We will play this song throughout the month of March five to six times a day in our stream and if you only love it half as much as we do, we’re certain you’ll enjoy it immensely!

The fantasy festival scene emerged last night

After a long cold winter-break, the fantasy festival scene emerged last night to attend the Fantasy Awards 18/19 at Qbus Club Leiden .

This party, organised by Bastaard , was the first time in almost three months we got together again, this time to celebrate a scene that is build on love, friendship, hugs, mead, campfires, laughter and really good music.

Last night, this music was provided by twibv , Datura medieval music , Aelixihr , Four of a Kind , Plunder and The Royal Spuds and ensured that we all got that beautiful “coming home” feeling in our hearts.

Most important focus of this evening was of course the Award ceremony. And the winners for 2018 are:

Best Festival: Castlefest
Best Live Act NL/BE: Rapalje Celtic Folk Music
Best Live Act Internationaal: The Dolmen
Best Album: Wytches & Cunningfolk by The Dolmen
Best Entertainment: House of Wax Entertainment
Best Stand: Magic Within
Best Foto: Anouk Pross Photography
Best Kostuum: Keyleth (critical role)

Congratulations from the whole CeltCast team! It is really well earned!

Of course we were present not only to enjoy the evening but also to take some pictures and do livestreams!

The livestreams can be found here:
