Melt 2012 sunday

Lazy sunday. My favorite day at Melt. Everybody is a bit hungover and fluffy. Movements are slower, in a common pace, people got used to each other, made friends and are a bit emotional because a great time is going to end.

Melt 2012 – saturday

Saturday is the most crowded day at Melt and the line-up is packed. I tried to see a lot and in the end felt a bit dissatisfied. I should have concentrated a bit more, I guess.

Melt 2012 – Thursday night and friday preview

Melt started yesterday with a soft preparty in the Intro tent. Considering the rainy weather, the tent will probably be the most popular venue this year. Toy were one of the openers and did a good job with impressive trumpets and trombones.
