I tell you! If all events were like this one, I'd have to fire most of my staff! After more than 5,000 people spent hours in the sand dunes - not one piece of garbage left behind! Almost no disruption of the surroundings!
Thank you for creating such an amazing, wondrously beautiful, true and gratifying art! May you have enough creativity for many more years
The Oss year's concert is of special significance to me personally as after the Ogre concert, under the dome of stars - I asked my then-girlfriend to be my wife!
Once I was stopped in a shopping mall by a couple. They complained that under the influence of our event, their son was asking for a microscope - not latest toy - for Christmas.
Thanks to all musicians and people who can create something with such synchronicity of the soul, science, meditation and other emotions!
