Interview with Mark van der Stelt (1/3)
At Keltfest 2015 we had
a very open and heartfelt talk with none other than Mark van der Stelt
one of the driving forces behind Castlefest and everything Vana-related!
On this rainy but beautiful festival day we talked for almost 45 minutes about the festival scene, how Castlefest and other festivals came to light. We talked about the importance of music and creativity, and of course about the future!
Because Mark was so kind to take a lot of time for us we had to cut the interview into three parts, of which the first part is released today! Mind you, it’s audio only, though you can find the written text on our site. 🙂
And of course, stay tuned for parts 2 and 3 🙂
Kees’ special bio!
CeltCast is very pleased to announce that we have another addition to the team!
If you haven’t seen the man himself, we’re sure you have at least seen his work.
Ladies and gentlemen, our very own photographer,
also known as photographer of the stars:
We have been using a lot of Kees’ pictures for reports and cover photo’s, and he is a very familiar face at festivals throughout the Netherlands and Germany. He is close to Omnia, and had recently released some amazing shoots of FAUN and Wardruna, among many many more.
