AFRIKA TAGE OPEN-DOOR-DAY

Hello guys and girls,
tomorrow on monday the 4th of August (yes, time goes by) there will be the ONLY(!) day with free entry at the africa-fest on the Donauinsel.
Although the weatherforecast could be better and me going to leave early, I wish to host this meetup. On the link it says there will be workshops for drumming, bellydancing und Live-music acts. http://wien.afrika-tage.de/afrika-tage-2014-tag-der-offenen-tur-04-08-2014/

See you there!

PS: MEETING POINT IS @ NEUE DONAU U6 from where we walk across the bridge to the festival

TIME 15:00

(again me having to leave early ~before 6pm.)

PPS: In case of rain the event will be cancelled.

    Jesus Christ on a totem pole! Why do these cultural festivals in Vienna have to be so lame? Sure, I didn't expect class act performances, much less from a Viennese group. I sincerely congratulate them on their gig. High five, guys! My ears, though, they wanted to have none of it. Totally agree! You know what would've been ideal? A sense of excitement floating in the air. Something you get drawn into and can't hope to escape from. The African spirit pervading your soul and everything. Passionate dancers losing themselves in the rhythms of the music, animating your heart and captivating your mind. Oh, I need to go to Africa for that? Lemme don a costume first. Alright baby, here I coooome!

      Anyway, when we were leaving I saw Mr. Radioguy forbidding a guy from playing the drums. "It's too loud?" Great, I guess I should go to an open-air festival where it's allowed to make some noise. In no way could I complain about the food and the variations of flavouring hot water! My nostrils were in bliss. My ears were in agony. So, they got their sh..stuff together when it comes to merchandise and delicious dishes. I swear to the gods, though, you would get more Africa out of a flash mob performing on a public square or even in a damn shopping mall, than from events like these.

    Hi, it's between U6 Handelskai and Neue Donau, but you will have to walk a long way from U1. I will be there because a friend is exhibitor. She makes soap with African ingredients. The nearest address which can be entered in google maps and other systems is Donauinselplatz - you can also take the 31 tram, but U6 is better.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
