22 and 23 June De Kift at Oerol Festival
The island can only be reached by boat.
The festival has had an annual presence on the island for twenty-five years hosting 50,000 people throughout its ten days.
It’s focus is music and theater. The Peer Group put on an amazing site specific portable theater work in a field which could only be reached by foot or bicycle. The time of day was specific to the performance with the sun beginning to set and the sheep heading in. The performance ended with the audience relocating the wooden structures referencing the historical moving of barns by whole towns to follow their sheep.
Our first night we spent settling in, bicycling round the island, and getting to know our generous host Jan de Jong of the Vijfpoort, a local pub with a long history of excellent live music and receptive to a BIER giveaway.
During the day we spent our time promoting BIER and De Kift “Ontmoete & Groete”
We would also go see the band.
Friday and Saturday night the BIER table was set-up and free bottles given away to all who purchased tickets and posed with the band. Designs by Luis Banuelos, Juan Angel Chavez, Ursula Kammer-Fox, Radah, and two anonymous designs submitted by davidmichaellee’s students were used.
and the drinkers…
