Watch out: Kingsday is looming!

Watch out: Kingsday is looming!

The most crazy day in Holland is just around the corner and every year around this time the same inevitably questions arise. Where to celebrate? (Boat madness? Street madness? Private madness?) How to pull a decent Lindsay Lohan (aka party to the max) without checking into rehab afterwards? And how to sport the must-wear color of the day (orange) without looking like an escaped tropic bird on acid?

Kingsday may be the most frolicsome national event of the year, fashion wise it is a disaster. There is a reason why fashion designers never choose full orange-outfits on any runway EVER. The same goes for footwear, unless you are a sneaker or Crocs person. Dancing, cheering, running around with 800.000 party companions soaking in all the madness will have it’s toll on your outfit (beer showers, canal water, probably rain this year) and your feet (toes stepped on, blisters, scattered glass) so you better be prepared.

I always opt for some cheerful comfy layers and some heels I won’t regret ruining (although NO heel deserves such a cruel fate), wearing a smile on top of everything and making sure my glass (=most important accessoire) is never empty. Then just go with the flow and enjoy to the max. No one ever will be excused wearing bright orange trousers with a tiger print in public on any other day. Be that tropic bird for once and HAVE FUN!!!

Although Cannes itself is a massive and mad experience with more parties to attend than time and stamina allow, there is one event in particular that stands out and tops them all: the Massive Music party.

Showing off that you scored a ticket is more prestigious than running around with a festival pass for the whole week. But if you got lucky…… man! What&a&party!

This year they created The World’s Biggest Agency (operating just for one night), celebrating with the top of the advertising business such as “Chief Executive Bitch”, “Most Valuable Content Gimp”, “Chief Nonsense Ambassador” or “Fucking Amazing Codswallop Powder Monkey”.

Oh, and there was the world’s biggest sound system, smashing-down-the-walls-and-bursting-your-ear-drums making anyone jealous watching the spectacle from afar. And the world’s biggest copying machine (aka DJ booth) making Bill Clinton wish (rumor has it he was there) he had brought Monica.

And so much fun.
And so much wine.
And so much dancing.
So much Massive Madness that I&can’t&concentrate&nor&write&anymore&due&to&overwhelming&experience.

Thank you Massive Music for making my week on Wednesday already!
