The 4 Performance We Liked Most at Vida Festival

We were very excited to go to this edition of Vida Festival, a tiny indie music festival set in the seaside Catalan town of Vilanova i la Geltrú, and all our expectations were fully met.
A good quality of the artists, a stunning location and an amazing atmosphere, helped to really enjoy the days of the festival!
These are the four performance that impressed us the most:
THE FLAMING LIPS
No presentation needed for this American band that’s around since 1983 but it’s still kickin’. The frontman Wayne Coyne was in top shape and made an absolutely awesome performance, in a concert full of unicorns, rainbows and so much love. They are now on tour with their new album “Oczy Mlody”, with various dates over the UK and then back in the US, and we really suggest that you go to see them!
Warhaus is the solo project of Maarten Devolder, singer of the Belgian indie rock band Balthazar. Maarten started this new intriguing project with Jinte Deprez in 2016 when members of Balthazar decided to take some time to focus on their own work. Looking them performing live on stage and singing together was an absolute pleasure and quite surprising compared to what you can get just by listening to their debut album called “We Fucked a Flame Into Being”. They are on tour until the end of 2017 all over Europe and it’s a good opportunity to see them live.
We knew him well before to come to Vida festival and the quality of his performance is not a surprise to us, but we found him on this occasion particularly inspired. Devendra Banhart was born in Houston, Texas, but was raised by his mother in Venezuela, until when he became a teenager and moved to California. He recently released the ninth album, Ape in Pink Marble, and he is currently touring around Europe. If you have never seen him live you will certainly fall in love with his eccentric personality.

ROSALIA & RAUL REFREE
This Flamenco duo made an impressive exhibition, catalyzing the attention of all the people present. It was simply not possible to not get emotional by listening to the beautiful voice of Rosalia, a 23 years old songwriter from Catalunya, that is really making waves this Summer, getting great reviews from all her performances and her debut album called “Los Angeles”. Seeing her in a wood of maritime pines was almost a mystical experience.
