Ususally when I go to a festival I get up quite early, so I won’t miss anything. Today was a little different, I had to get up even earlier, because today was the day I flew to Spain for Festival Fantasía Epica Avalon Summer Faerie Fest 2017 ! A drive to the airport, a heart throbbing shuttle transfer from parking to departures, and then into the plane! As fast as the shuttle driver was, I think the pilot wanted to beat him, because we arrived 20 minutes early in Madrid! Here I was greeted by the lovely Cristree , Alex and Yhandros , and together we set out for Belmonte, the town with the beautiful castle where the festival will be held.
When we arrived we found out exactly what the airconditioning in the car was doing. Opening the doors to the car unleashed some serious heat! But all that faded quickly when we entered the rooms the organisation had reserved for us! Beautiful, luxurious rooms, with everything we could wish for and more! So we quickly settled in, had a nice lunch and then, well, they say “when in Rome, do as the Romans do” so when in Spain…you close the curtains and have yourself a nice siesta!
After this more members of Cuélebre and their support arrived, and we went to the festival grounds for some reconnaicance and a soundcheck! The first thing you notice when approaching Castillo de Belmonte is “Wow! What an amazing castle!” To be honest, this is also the second thing you notice when you take a walk through it. Just awesome! As I am writing this the soundcheck is in full swing and it’s looking to be a brilliant evening! So the last thing I really want to say is: stay tuned! We will keep you updated, and maybe, if things work out, there might actually already be some streaming tonight!

Festive greetings,

Castle Spain
