Firebirds Festival 2015

Like every year on the first weekend in July: Castle Trebsen near Grimma/Germany was showplace of the sounds of fantastic rock’n’roll music and fans of the 50s and 60s style. At the same time we had one of the hottest weekends of the year – 38 degrees Celsius in the shade and a hardly breeze. You could see the crowds just hopping from shadow to shadow or wagging their fronds. It was as always a fantastic festival for each eye to observe the dressed ladies and gentlemen in their vintage style – with their proper hairstyles and attitudes.

In addition to the numerous bands that gave the honor, such as: the lords of the castle itself – The Firebirds – The Starliters, Barrence Whitfield, Twistes Rod – to name just a few, the organizers made the event around with burlesque shows, an antique car show for all chrome enthusiastic fans, dance classes for beginners and advanced, a Fashion tent full of authentic labels for shopping and various workshops for make-up and hair styles for men and women. Everything the heart of a rock and roll fan is beating for was offered a long three days and the all-round package convinced as every year from new.

This year I worked again as a model on the catwalk and was proud to present the fashion labels “Frozen Hibiscus”, “The Pink Room” and “Vecona Vintage”. Despite the extreme conditions (40 degrees felt stagnant air in the fashion tent and 20 models corralled into the tightest spaces) it was a pleasure to be on stage again.

Many thanks to the fantastic Miss Mint. She has again conjured up a great creation that withstood the heat, remained stable despite the frequent change of clothing and looked fantastic the whole three days. So girls – if you should eventually have the time and opportunity to let you embellish by Miss Mint or to visit one of her workshops – use this great opportunity!

What I love most on Firebirds Festival is this pleasant atmosphere almost familiar – and the fantastic setting of the scenery gives a romantic touch. To stand in front of an illuminated castle under a starry sky and listen to the bands is one of the most beautiful moments that you can enjoy at this festival. To have people around you who love and live all the same, makes the event every year to an absolute must. I am really looking forward to the next time!
