These last 5 days at the
Mittelalterlich Phantasie Spectaculum
in Dortmund have been a crazy but fun experience. It is hard to believe that it is already over.
The MPS Dortmund had everything we could have asked for and then some more. We experienced, wind, rain, cold, sunshine, warmth, shops, food, drinks, friends, hugs and of course amazing music!
On Saturday we kicked off the festival with a massive line up. Bands like
Rapalje Celtic Folk Music
Mr. Hurley & Die Pulveraffen
were all on stage that day. You’ll understand that our team of two photographers were racing from stage to stage having an absolute blast! We didn’t even mind the cold and rain.
Sunday was a lot more quiet and relaxing. Traditional a family day, the bands on stage were also reflecting that feel. We even saw the Heavysaurus!
The Monday was a day off for us festival goers, which was very welcome. It offered a day of relaxing, recovering and reflecting on what had already been a good weekend. And we would be getting 2 more of those days. And we needed the rest for Tuesday!
Tuesday was awesome! Again packed full with great music by
Ye Banished Privateers
and of course
It was sunny, it was warm and it was special. The atmosphere created by the die-hard festival goes and the bands was something you don’t encounter often.
The closing day was the first of May, a bank holiday in Germany and it was noticeable. It was very busy with a lot of happy families enjoying the market, the shows, drinks, good food, and the music.
Harmony Glen, Ye banished Privateers, Saor Patrol, the Cobblestones and
Weltenkrieger – Barden des Lichts
ensured that the adults were able to dance and sing along, while the kids had once again to see the Heavysaurus… (and we can confirm that it is also enjoyed by many adults. 😉 )
In the end, it was a really good festival that will be staying in our memories forever. It is sad that this was the last MPS in Dortmund but luckily, there are many more MPS festivals this year and the next to go to!
