SpringSix Coldcut

Vienna, Prague, Graz.

It’s currently about 4 in the afternoon in our hotel (Das Weitzer) near the center of Graz – Austria. We’ve managed to recover from the first day of partying, and are about start off Day 2 of the springsix musical festival.

Last night we got the chance to see, Burt Latino & Mavis, Coldcut (see first photo), Bill Brewster, Felix Da Housecat, Eddy meets Yanna & Zak, Le Petit Orb, Ada and Jo Saurbier. Sadly there was lots of other artists playing that evening, however with so much choice and soo many venues, we simply couldn’t see everyone. However, the venues (of which there are almost a dozen of them)! Wow.

In Graz there is this little mountain called the Schlossberg in the middle of the city, Last night Coldcut played in this huge outdoor amphitheater, meanwhile Felix was down inside the mountain in one of the various caves found within the Schlossberg. Glass elevator ride down and everything. Sick.

Anyways, not to babble too much as we need to get ready to walk to this Park near the other side of town to catch Carl Craig talking at the Red Bull Music Academy Lecture. So that’s all for now.. We’ll be checking in again soon.
