44. 15-08-2008 Zomeravonden festival, Maastricht, The Netherlands


Beequeen played at a summer festival organized in the ENCI concrete factory near the city center of Maastricht. The factory is partly abandoned and its large halls were temporarily given over to the festival organization for cultural events. Lots of people visited the festival and enjoyed the bands, theatre and dance events. The food was wonderful. Beequeen played in the silo-hall. Due to program delays, we started 45 minutes late. At the start of the concert the electronic iron blinds, which separated the audience from the band, were closed. During the introduction music (from the Mulholland Drive movie), the blinds were opened to reveal the band. A very dramatic and successful start of the show. We played a good show and premiered The Honeythief to the audience, which even caused some hesitating clapping along of the audience. Will we ever turn into a monolithic stadium band like U2? Let's hope not. One U2 is quite enough. After the show, we stayed the night in a hostel. In all, a lovely day. (FK)
