Worldwide Festival - Day 3

After catching up on some sleep, we warmed up on the beach once again. This definitely is a great location, even if the sky's a little bit cloudy. When it was time to move towards the Théatre De La Mer, many people simply kept on dancing to the music - of course, nobody wants to leave a party that has only just begun. Anyway, on our way we stopped for an half hour at Raphael's trailer for a beer or two. Then it was Mocky time. So beautiful, the band had so much fun on the stage, even given the fact that the audience was very small at the beginning. But people kept pouring in, and when Gilles demanded to hear "that whistling tune" ("Birds Of A Feather" from Mocky's new album Saskamodie) again, everybody was happy. Especially with a perfect view of the Mediterranean like we had.

Jimi Tenor afterwards gave the last show at the Théatre for this year's edition of the Worldwide Festival with his smashing Afrobeat performance. People were dancing in front of the band like crazy. Once in a while I had to climb the stairs towards the upper ranks of the amphitheatre to enjoy the gorgeous view you have from up there. We didn't move directly to the lighthouse afterwards but returned to the trailer once more for a beer. There, we also met with Elan Mehler (who got a beer, too, of course); he's such a nice guy! We should meet him again later when Laurent Garnier broke it down after Fulgeance and a sensational set from Jazzanova's Alex Barck. I missed the last act of the day, Boozig, because I had to get me some french fries at the restaurant close to the venue - that's where I not only met some more German guys, but where Jimi Tenor satisfied his appetite for fries with lots of mayonnaise ;-)

As always, I'd like to recommend Lefto's account of what happened the day as well as his excellent video coverage of the events:
