Room to breathe - that's what I got when I went to London on my own last September. I had time to think about my life and what I wanted. However, this trip was not just about that. I went to Hospitality in the Park - a drum and bass festival. I've been listening to this genre of music for a few years now and my love for it grows stronger and stronger. And that's not just because of the music, but also due to the great community.

When I left my hotel room to travel to Finsbury Park, I wasn't sure if it was a good idea to go to a festival all by myself. But let me tell you: I had the best time ever. I spent the first two hours alone, dancing to sets by Maduk and S.P.Y. After that, I grabbed some food and a beer and sat down outside one of the tents. A British couple then started talking to me and when they found out that I traveled all the way from Switzerland just to enjoy some drum and bass, they "adopted" me. I met their friends and spent a few hours with that group. After that, I explored the festival on my own again. I also talked to people from Sweden and New Zealand and I even met a Swiss guy.

Going to this festival was one of the best experiences of my life. I just love the drum and bass community - everyone I've met so far was so friendly, open-minded and - exactly like me - very passionate about this genre. That's why I want to go to a lot more of those festivals next year. I'd love to visit Let it Roll in the Czech Republic, Sun and Bass which is taking place on a beach on Sardinia, Liquicity Festival in Amsterdam, Rampage in Antwerp and of course Hospitality in the Park in London (if they decide to do another edition).

But first, there are a few really cool events coming up in Switzerland: Hospitality in Winterthur this Saturday featuring Metrik and London Elektricity, RAM Night in Zurich and then on New Year's Eve, Maduk will play a set in Zurich. I'm so excited for all of these.

So, in case I've infected you with my drum and bass fever, I left a link to my playlist on Spotify at the end of the post. I update it almost daily, so feel free to follow that as well. What do you feel very passionate about? Let me know in the comments below. Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a lovely day. Take care and see you soon. Lots of love, Selina ♥

P.S. I almost forgot: I got inspired to tell you this story because I wore this dress and the kimono to the festival :)
