Interview with Mark van der Stelt (3/3)

Mark After yesterday’s revelation we now bring you the third and final chapter of our Keltfest​ interview with Mark van der Stelt.

In this last part we talk some more about the future of Castlefest and other festivals and about the feel of the atmosphere. We talk about fantasy and historical TV shows and all things medieval. We hear how the wicker burning, an idea originally brought to Castlefest by Steve Sic (Omnia), has grown and has become an integral part of the festival and about the story behind the stage diving fruit. Of course the very talented Fieke van den Hurk (Orchus studio) is mentioned because of all her work for Castlefest and we end with some advice for people who have never been to Castlefest. Guess what that advice could be 😉

As said before, because of the length of the interview we cut it into three parts of which this is the third part. It’s audio only, but you can find the written text below the video 🙂


Interview with Mark van der Stelt (2/3)

Mark And now for part 2 of our Keltfest​ interview with Mark van der Stelt, wherein he reveals BIG news about… well, have a listen! 😉

On this rainy but beautiful festival day 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 Events-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 second 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 part 3 🙂

Kees’ special bio!

CeltCast is very pleased to announce that we have another addition to the team!
