Walking around the campground you didn't need to have an excuse to talk to anyone which, for an Icelander, is quite odd but really comfortable compared to the socially inept herd mentality we're used to here. It really felt more like a large group of friends (about 900 people) gathered to have a great time together than a festival.
Getting to meet all these artists whose music I've enjoyed over the years and have actual conversations with them felt natural and real instead of the "hey, sign this, I love your shit" communication that you're more likely to get at bigger festivals or shows.
Having listened to Sikth for years as I talked about in my live review it was an honor to get the opportunity to hang out with Justin, Mikee and Pin after their show.
So I realize that this is just me saying how amazing the whole festival was for me but you know...it's my blog and all that.
Also, if something should sell this festival it's the feel of it. I would go whatever bands were playing because if nothing good is going on in the arena the campground is likely to have something to offer.
So if making multinational friends (Scottish, Norwegian, English, Israeli/Egyptian, South-African, Welsh, French, German, American and Italian for me so far), hearing fantastic music and attending some workshops doesn't sound good to you then don't come to Tech Fest.
If it does, it will welcome you with open arms and you won't want it to let go.
