In my recent trip to Gdansk in Poland I discovered there was a big music festival playing in the nearby Gdynia, with big names like Florence and the Machine, Red Hot Chilli, PJ Harvey, and many others. So, I decided to go for the first day featuring Florence. And it was pretty amazing. It’s probably the largest festival I’ve been to, in terms of land size, and they had all sorts of funky things going on. Florence was absolutely brilliant, and the Polish crowds surprised me with their energy and positive vibes, that performance was a blast.
