There he is in “the green room” getting prepared for an epic two-hour-set. III Points is a festival taking place in the Arts District of Miami, for their 4th edition ... Read more

DGTL Festival 2015 Report: Sunday

About a week ago DGTL kicked off the festival season and it was a blast. Enough time to retrospect on the two day event. Here’s day two of the festival report. The easter sunday started with quite a long train ride for me.

After a strange train ride, a fight between a ticket controller and passenger included, I finally arrived in Amsterdam. First good sign: the sun is shining, which ... Read more
