The real Monthly Marker

OK, so yesterday’s Monthly Marker announcement was a bit of a joke, obviously. It was the first of April, after all. But we do have a new Monthly Marker for you, replacing The Dolmen ‘s ‘Black Is The Colour’. And ‘new’ is the key word this month!

You see, this is the month of Elfia and we wanted you all to have a little something to get in the right mood. And what could be better for that than a nice balfolk dance, a cercle in this case. All through April you can hear Wouter en de Draak ‘s ‘New Horizons, New Adventures’ five to six times a day, so you will have no excuse not to dance when they play this song at Kasteel de Haar during the wonderful weekend that is Elfia!

And…one and two and three and turn, and one and two and three and four….

Wouter en de Draak

The CeltCast team has been waking up with a smile on our face!

What an amazing day we had yesterday in the kingdom of Elfia ! It was sunny, it was warm, it was loud, it was busy, it ws friendship, it was love, it was a party! What more could we have wished for as an amazing opener of the outdoor festival season? Nothing really.

They kicked off the morning with a nice little bit of Symphonic Metal by Cathubodua to wake us all up properly. Followed by the party tunes of Mumfords Calling , Sunfire and Greenrose Faire to match the relaxing atmosphere of the festival. To make the party complete, Ye Banished Privateers and The Spleen Orchestra – Tim Burton Show killed it on the main stage, while Plunder (with some stage crashing from half the Pyrolysis crew) threw a party on the Medieval stage!

There were balfolk sessions to teach people how to dance, there was a stage specifically designed for balfolk tunes and in another area of the fields, Sassenachs introduced the many visitors to bagpipes and drums.

The market was huge, the models and cosplays amazing! Most importantly it was fun to be in the Kingdom of Elfia… And the best thing? We are going to do it all over again today!

So see you at Kasteel de Haar !
