Photographs of Festival Okoř 2013

Here are a few photographs that we took when we were at Festival Okoř yesterday, in between watching drunken bald people flirt with women by throwing their children at them (we kid you not). As always, the weather was divine, the beer tasted beautiful and everybody was in a fantastic mood.

Unfortunately, the music at this year’s Okoř was slightly sub-divine, if we’re being honest. If we hear one more “uh wuh uh oh oh” from a prancing lead singer in the near future, we’re liable to get violent.

Happily, everything else about the day was perfect and the musical side was saved by a grizzly old Slovak called Miro Žbirka who was head and shoulders above every other performer on show. His rendition of Hey Jude brought a genuine tear to the eye (although James is blaming that on the suncream).

A few clouds tried to get involved, but Festival Okoř was having none of it.
