FEM 2014 El Cotellio Fuerteventura
« on: August 13, 2014, 10:38:14 PM »
Fuerteventura en Musica 2014 reached its Zenith for both its audience and around 21,000 people on the beach..!

This  music festival takes place only once per year, it raises money for conservation..

This year it was 'No Al Petroleo' which translates into English..No to oil prospecting..

It raised an incredible 1.5 Million Euro's for the Island... :thumbup1:

It was already approaching midnight when we made the short trip to the beach..

Something that I have personally never done, this event was going to go on all night..!

But there was no way that I could stay all night.. :w00t:

We arrived at a very busy beach and had a few beers before we made our way to the stage... :tongue_smilie:



I was stopped by lots of people for photographs, I didn't know quite a few.. :w00t:

 

The stage was quite big as I wondered how I was going to photograph the stars from Spain and the hit band..Grupo Bomba  :tongue_smilie:







At last I was ushered into a little space in front of the stage as they thought I was from the BBC or something.. :tongue_smilie:



And I was in prime location for the hit boy band..Grupo Bomba... :thumbup1:

I actually really liked these lads, they were very lively on stage and worked very hard..

I didn't have a clue what they were singing about, but they could sing and perform...
Music does NOT need to have a language that we understand.. :thumbup1:












Charlotte and her friends were loving it... :thumbup1:







































Not sure why Charlotte is pulling this face... :scared:







It really was an amazing night, there was no trouble and people just danced and enjoyed themselves..

It really was awesome.. :thumbup1:

 :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:











A good night was had by all..

The reps from various hotels and bar staff looked quite worse for wear the next day, but as I was told it was for charity, so it was sort of ok... :w00t: :w00t: :w00t: :w00t:


Tempted to do it again next year... :tongue_smilie:
