The woods of Luhmuhlen are calling. They’re demanding me, my laptop and camera to record the antics of the first A Summer’s Tale Festival, ever.

Damien Rice, Patti Smith and Tori Amos will be my work colleagues for the long weekend, along with Young Rebel Set, Belle and Sebastian and Alex Clare. Oh the laughs we’ll have.

A Summers Tale

I found the festival when I was planning my Interrail route, and decided that as it was the first year it was the perfect time to get involved. After speaking with the crew there we decided I’d represent the English speakers and keep everyone up to date on the official A Summer’s Tale Tumblr.

A unique, cultural experience in the woods

A Summer’s Tale is a cultural festival as well as music – I’m thinking it will be Latitude Festival, mixed with 70s Glasto and then your local village fete thrown in too. The grounds are in the Luhmuhlen woods, about 40 minutes from Hamburg – sounds pretty magical.

Alongside partying with the headliners I’ll be making the most of the specially selected cuisine, the screen printing, the sommelier workshop and the circus school. Next time you see me I’ll be in a homemade tshirt, drinking my homemade craft beer while juggling atop a penny farthing. Perhaps.

The official English A Summer’s Tale blogger

You can expect lots of stories and photos on both the A Summers Tale Tumblr and social media accounts and on mine. I’ll also be making a video to show you how you can make the most of A Summer’s Tale in the future, or even this weekend – there are still tickets left!

Follow the A Summer’s Tale Tumblr to keep up, and me @VickyFlipFlop on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram too.

Do you have any festivals planned?
