This is a selection of pictures of this year’s Renaissance Alternative Music Festival, which took place at the Electrowerkz in London, October 24th 2015 and was organised by Ays Kura from Die Kur. As the name of the festival already suggests it is all about alternative music, e.i. anything from Metal to Goth. A great place to listen to really rare and original music you would usually not find in the average live venue of London. It was also great to meet all these lovely people who are keeping London’s underground alive, everybody supports each other and it always feels like a huge family party! Hope to be there next year again and hope to see even more lovely people around!
Was just rummaging through my picture folders and found a few images I was actually not supposed to publish. well when I saw them I thought they really fit my current mood so here we go… I have now lived in London for 4 years and most of the time I think how amazing that is and how lucky I am, I have the best time of my life. But there are these days and I’m sure everybody has these days when nothing goes right, like in such a way that you feel fucking grounded and almost humiliated. You just start to questioning everything. London is one of the most popular places in the world, I have more than 8 million neighbors, it’s a place where people go on holiday! BUT what I hear a lot from other people and what I feel a lot as well is that London can be one of the loneliest places in the world too. The traffic, the noise, the pollution, the stress, the different cultures & languages, the distances, the lack of time, the general madness… It’s one of those days where I realize again that I have it fucking good, a place to live, a safe job, interesting hobbies and a shit load of entertainment. But I don’t seem to know a single one of this 8 million people around me. I mean I talk to some, I hang out with some, I work with some, but who do I actually know!? why does it sometimes feel so bleak and cold? And where are all the other people like me?
