In 2014 I saw many concerts again. Some by band I knew and it introduced many new artists and bands to me and I loved so many of them. It’s absolutely impossible to arrange a set in a Top 10 as there were so many incredible concerts and one is simply so much different to another. But I would like, as is the custom at the end of the year, to highlight a few moments of the year.
As every year I buy way more albums than is good for me (trust me, it’s too much). However I must admit that this year I haven’t bought that many albums that were actually released this year.

I’ve seen Inge van Calkar a few times now, including when she operated under the name Zaza, but with there already being a Zaz, a Zazi and a Zazie, it’s good that Inge performs as Inge van Calkar now :) The last time I saw her was on the fantastic FestivalderAa festival and now with a full band she rocked the Vanslag church in Borger last Friday.
In the beautiful nature reserve Drentsche Aa, right at the outer edge of Schipborg in Drenthe, only a stones-throw away from where I live (really, I cycle past it all the time) the festival FestiValderAa is held. I found out about that last year, but missed it due to other activities so I made sure I’d be there this year.
