Waha Festival 2017

 

Chiar daca au trecut deja aproape doua saptamani de cand m-am intors de la Waha, mi-a placut atat de mult, incat m-am gandit sa va povestesc cum a fost.

Ce mi-a placut cel mai mult, si ceea ce ne-a determinat, de altfel, sa facem un drum destul de lung, de la Timisoara pana in judetul Covasna, a fost locul unde are loc festival: o padure!

 

EN: Even if we came back from Waha almost two weeks ago, I really liked it, so I thought I should tell you a bit about my experience there.

What I really loved, and what determined us to drive such a long distance to get there, was the location of the festival: a forest!

 

 

Cateva informatii utile despre locatia festivalului, pe care noi le-am stiut inainte sa mergem, si care au facut organizarea escapadei mai simpla:

  • am spus mai sus ca e vorba de o padure, ceea ce inseamna un weekend prelungit in natura – cu tot ceea ce implica acest lucru
  • zona nu este acoperita din punctul de vedere al retelelor mobile; asta inseamna ca nu vei avea nici semnal, nici internet – ceea ce face totul si mai interesant!
  • dusul va fi aproape un lux; exista un loc foarte dragut, construit special pentru festival, unde poti face dus, si primesti si un sapun biodegradabil, numai ca trebuie sa stai la coada cam jumatate de ora

 

EN: Some useful information about the location of the festival, which we knew about before leaving, making our trip very easy and well-organized:

  • as I mentioned before, the festival takes place in a forest, which means you will be surrounded by nature the whole weekend – with everything this involves
  • the festival is not within the telephone coverage area, which means you won’t have mobile phone signal or internet – and that’s what makes it even more interesting!
  • the shower is almost a luxury; there is a very nice place, specially made for the festival, where you can take a shower, and you even get a bio soap, but you have to queue for about hald an hour

 

 

Ce sa iei cu tine:

  • cort
  • izoprene sau saltele gonflabile
  • sac de dormit
  • apa! (potabila, dar si pentru spalat)
  • servetele
  • mancare care nu se altereaza (alimente sigilate sau legume si fructe proaspete); eu am facut chiar si niste cupcakes pentru drum – foarte simple si potrivite pentru micul dejun
  • haine subtiri pentru zi (cand e foarte cald), si mai groase pentru noapte (cand se racoreste, si aerul devine chiar rece)
  • prosoape

 

EN: What to take with you:

  • tent
  • sleeping pads or inflatable mattress
  • sleeping bag
  • water! (for drinking and for washing)
  • tissues
  • unalterable food (sealed foodstuff or fresh vegetables and fruits); I even made some simple cupcakes that are perfect for breakfast
  • light clothes for the day-time (when it’s really hot), and some warm ones for the night (when it can get really cold)
  • towels

 

 

Ce am facut in timpul zilei:

Camping-ul este situat la umbra, ceea ce inseamna ca poti dormi foarte mult, fara sa se supraincalzeasca cortul.

Mai mult decat atat, ai ce sa faci si pe durata zilei la Waha. Majoritatea scenelor au muzica non-stop, deci poti sa iti continui petrecerea imediat ce te trezesti.

Pe langa asta, la stand-urile din zona de food e o varietate foarte mare de mancare, la preturi rezonabile (burgeri, salate, supe, mancare raw-vegana).

Pop-up store-ul iti ofera posibilitatea de a cumpara diverse suveniruri handmade, facute cu grija de artizani locali sau din strainatate.

Cu toate astea, nu pentru ca ne-am plictisit in vreo clipa, dar mai mult din curiozitate, noi am mers sa vizitam putin si imprejurimile. Am mers, asadar, intr-o dupa-masa, pana la lacul Sfanta Ana (care e la vreo 40 de minute de mers cu masina). E un lac format intr-un crater vulcanic, si nu am regretat nicio clipa ca am mers!

 

EN: What we did during the day:

The camping site is located in a shaded area, which means you’ll be able to sleep as much as you want, as the tent will not overheat in the morning.

But you really have plenty of stuff to do during the day at Waha. Almost every stage has non-stop music, so you can go on partying right after you wake up.

What’s more, the food stands in the food area offer a large variety of foodstuff at a reasonable price (burgers, salads, soups, raw-vegan food).

At the pop-up stores you can buy a lot of handmade stuff, carefully crafted by local or foreign artisans.

But even with this whole variety of activities, we also wanted to visit the surroundings. We went to take a bath in the lake Sfanta Ana (around 40-minutes drive) – a volcanic lake. And we didn’t regret going a single moment!

 

 

In concluzie, n-as zice ca Waha e potrivit pentru oricine – nu e foarte mare, nu apar sute de poze pe facebook despre el, iar muzica nu multumeste toate gusturile. Dar eu zic ca e, cu siguranta, un festival foarte tare la care trebuie sa mergi daca iti place sa ai parte de o atmosfera relaxata in timp ce asculti muzica faina.

 

EN: To sum it up, I would’t say Waha is suitable for any kind or person – it’s not very large, you don’t see a lot of facebook posts about it, and the music may not please any taste. But, in my opinion, it’s a festival worth going to, if you love listening to nice music while surrounded by a relaxed atmosphere.
