Bunty Goes To The Luna Festival

DSC01064 Hello, I have been on another adventure, this time to a music festival called The Luna Festival. I was so excited, my people daddy said it was a hippy-dippy festival, my people brother told me it was a folk festival  and my people mommy said I should wear flowers around my head and she made me a new dress and a band with a flower for my head.

 

The festival was in a place called  Tanworth in Arden and was held in a big field. There were lots of stalls selling food, drink, clothes and lots of other pretty things, I had a quick hop around to have a look. Some of the people there had very pretty clothes and lots of flowers in their hair and glitter on their faces. I thought they looked beautiful.

 

It was nearly time for the first band so I hopped down to by the stage and found a place to sit. The first band was called The Mothers Earth Experiment, I liked them, then it was Flamingods they were good too, then Khruangbin I didn’t like them much. Next were  Morris dancers with black faces, the leader said it was so their families wouldn’t get embarrassed about them and everybody laughed. They were very good and the leader was very funny. The next band were called The Mariachis, I really liked them, they are a mexican band and they made everyone laugh and get up and dance and sing, everyone was smiling and clapping.  The next group was called Paradise Bangkok molam International, but I didn’t stay to watch them I was very hot and needed to have a little hop, so I went for a hop around the stalls and get a drink with fruit in it, it tasted very nice but it made my head feel funny. I didn’t know it had alcohol in it, alcohol is not for little bunnies.

I hopped back to the stage in time to see Matt Berry and the Maypoles, I thought they were going to dance because people dance around a Maypole, but they didn’t. They sang, I liked them too.

I was very very hot by this time so I hop to the back of the crowd and sat at the back of the field, I could still see the stage and hear the music, and it was fun because there was a big machine blowing bubbles and they were flying all over the people. The next band were called The Zombies, I got a bit scared because I thought Zombies were nasty monsters and I couldn’t workout why they would be at this nice happy festival. I was quite relived to see they were very nice people who just sang, not monsters at all.

Then it was time for The Procession, I got very excited about this, I had already looked at the bonfire in the shape of a big bird. First the Crowman, along with a very pretty lady led the way to the bonfire. There were a lot of dancing animals and a very tall lady and a band following him. He then said something I couldn’t hear because I was around the wrong side of the bonfire,  then the bonfire was lit by a man who could breath fire, I hope his month was OK, because I wouldn’t have wanted him to be hurt when he was being so helpful. The bonfire and all the dancing animals were to welcome the new Rose Moon, I liked that I had welcomed the new moon too.

I watched the bonfire for a while, the grass by the stage had started to fill up with lots and lots of people so I went back to where I had been before and I could see. I sat on a bench and watched a group call Super Furry Animals, but they weren’t animals at all, I think that would have been funny.  I turn around to watch some pretty lights on the wall and a very clever lady dancing with some hoops that lit up, it looked like magic.

I was a very tired bunny by the time everything had finished, I had been there 12 hours. That’s a long time for a little bunny but I was a very happy bunny, I have seen lot’s of nice things and lots of happy people, I can’t wait until next year.

Keep Hopping Love
Bunty
