Day 21: Madrid, pt 2


Yesterday we played at Tomavistas festival!

I woke up just in time to catch the free hotel breakfast which closed at 11.30am (god I love Spain).

There was a very substantial buffet of which I didn’t even get close to sampling everything. On and around my two plates I managed to fit cured meats, cheeses, breads, Tortilla de Patatas, ball of salad, pastries, fresh fruit, and fresh fruit juice.

In the afternoon we headed over to Enrique Tierno Galván Park where the festival was being held. Tomavistas is a roughly 10,000 sized festival held over two days, that has a focus on being sustainable and family friendly.

Our set went extremely well thanks to great stage sound and an excellent technical team. The audience were very excited that Liz spoke all of the stage banter in Español. We were told that she has very good grammar and sounds like a Spaniard.

We played in quite an early timeslot so we were done by 7.30pm and had the rest of the night to watch the festival and eat/drink the rest of our rider.

Our highlight of the night was the Madrid four-piece Hinds, who delivered a set of raw and energetic party anthems with stage moves to match.

Beth of the day goes to Tristan for waking me up in time for breakfast, and for carrying my bass to the taxi after the festival.

Good effort Tristan. I wonder if one day you’ll treat Liz and Jon as well as you treat me 😉
