The endless Mystery of Love with Mr Fingers, Midori Takada, Sparks, Marie Davidson, Model 500, Princess Nokia and many more
It is not easy to look back on this years Flow edition without starting with the dark clouds which suddenly appeared in multiple layers on the Saturday night over the festival. First a heavy storme hit the festival site, and then, when we all thought that music and happiness are back for good, some aggressive and stupid security guards attacked dj and producer Inga Mauer violently and on top got her arrested later on by the police and so she had to spend the night in prison.
Her friend and colleague Marie Davidson witnessed the happenings in persona and wrote a statement on Facebook – and Marie Davidson also raised word the next day on stage for her friend, asking everybody in the audience to feel more responsible for their fellows and stand up for a non violent and compassionate community.
It was also good to see the three Flow owners Suvi Kallio, Tuomas Kallio and Toni Rantanen show face at the shows the next day and credibly make sure that they do all in their possibilities to enlighten the happenings and get those security guards reasonable disciplined. Everything else would have wondered as Flow festival is not only a super well organized festival, all the staff is also known as extremely involved, warm hearted – and dedicated to the idea of music as the uniting force of communities. A fact well shown once more in the programming, bringing together so many different styles and artists from all over the world.
