So. My small hometown, Hultsfred used to have the biggest music festival in Sweden. For a few years everyone went to Hultsfred, and then it kind of started to go downwards. But they've been managing at least, and they had an awesome line of artists this time around, finally they didn't go for the huge artist that no one wants to see and who costs loads to get there.
It was supposed to take place next week. But yesterday they announced that they won't be having the 25th anniversary festival. The festival announced bankruptcy since they would not be able to hold the festival with only 5000 bought tickets. Last year there was 22 000 and now 5000. I'm in shock. The first festival was 1986, the year I was born and I been going since I was 10, except for when I was in Japan during the festival. And now it's all over. I can't belive it. This festival has played a huge part in Sweden music history, and now it's over. I didn't think it would get to me in the way it has, but it did. When I was a teenager living in Hultsfred, music was the one thing that meant the most to me and the festival was the one thing that got me around in that awful smalltown and it's great how such a tiny place like that could make such a huge festival. Today I mourn it. If we had only known last year that it was the last year. Or maybe it was good that we didn't, I don't know. But.. It hurts. I just hope that Rockparty, the organizers won't get any troubles with their school and all of that they have built in Hultsfred. Because if that die, there will be no new, young people moving to Hultsfred and it will slowly die out. I don't live there anymore, and I really don't want to, but it's my hometown and I want it to live. A sad day.

And this is the day of the eito release! SO not ok to feel like this today! XD My singles have been sent and I'm looking forward to get them here! :D I haven't watched Prologue of Patch yet, that the lovely [ profile] airairo posted today. I will as soon as this is written down. Then hopefully my mood will get better!

Well, the organisation which is doing the festival has gone into bankruptcy, but there seems to be some people who have nothing to do with the festival now who seems to be wanting to start something up. So I'm hoping for that. :D

Thank you! I'm so excited to move in! I'll move in the beginning of August. :D

Sad to hear about the festival. I'm pretty sure I read a post in which you talked about it last year (I'm not sure it was the same festival, but I guess it was). T__T

Awww new home YAY!! :D You're moving just when fall begins? Which means, late september? And the whole group is living together, right?? That sounds exciting!! :D

Yeah, it was the same festival, and it's really really sad to see it gone. >_<

We're starting school on the 16th of August so sometime before that. :D I'm so excited! And yeah, we're all going to live together. :D
