If there’s such a thing as candy floss rock then this is it. A band name like Pylon calls to mind images of pollution and modernity, but here instead I find sunny warm harmonies that grab me by both ankles and pull me under. Although this isn’t the most original thing I’ve ever heard, the first half nevertheless holds my attention, hanging gently in the air; the musical equivalent of a crack in the curtains on Sunday morning. Something like 14 songs were recorded, how many make it onto the lp is anyone's guess. Thanks to Lee and Steve and all the bands who played at Joseph's Well the other week, was a really good night!

The most appreciated music festivals in the world
Everyone loves music, am I right? But not many get a chance to feel the music in every possible way. It is not only your ears that can get affected by music and enjoy it, but also your legs, your arms and your whole body actually. Music makes us dance, think and feel. It is not only vibrating air, it is something that makes us vibrate, our hearts beet faster and our brains go crazy.
If you never felt that, then you must have never been on a music festival. Wait, we don't mean the little ones you have near you, that make a few local groups sing and play music, where people stand or even sit just like on a concert. We mean the real ones, big, famous music festivals that make hundreds of thousands of people come and dance, enjoy the moment and feel the music.
The greatest festivals of our time
I always wanted to go to the Sunburn Festival. Last year I got the chance. My friend got 5 tickets, so everyone from our close group of friends could come. For those who don't know, it takes place at Vagator, Goa in India. It lasted for 4 days and it was one of the most exciting and amazing thing that happened to me. It always starts in late November or early December. Sunburn is an EDM, electronic dance music, festival with lots of other stuff besides great music. The crowd is, for example, amazing, in 2014 there were about 80.000 attendants, and I expected in 2015 to see about 100.000 people, not more than 150 thousand, but there were more than 350 thousand people in 2015. I could not believe my eyes. People are all around you. I also saw shows happening right there, it was really funny. And music 'til you can't take it more. It was really amazing, you should go there and see it by yourself. Don't forget to also go around the place, because there are a lot shopping stands and stuff like that, and travel around India, while you are there, it is a beautiful country with amazing people.
Glastonbury Festival is one that takes place really close to me. I go there almost every year and enjoy everything it has to offer. People from all around the world come and enjoy the great atmosphere and music. The biggest names of British music industry attend, this year Adele will sing and Coldplay also. They sell only 135.000 tickets, and they are sold out pretty fast, in less than 3 hours. They are also quite pricy, in 1970. they were only 1 pound, in 1971 they were free but this year they were 228 pounds. Although they sold out in 2,5 hours, I managed to get mine this year, did you get yours?
I have also to mention Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and Tomorrowland Festival. Coachella takes place in California. The music and the crowd are great, but if you don't like heat then don't go there, because the temperature can go up to 40 °C. Tomorrowland takes place in Belgium, but also Brazil and the USA. It is not that big as others but the stage designs are always great and a smaller crowd can be better.
