Carfest 2018

Carfest 2018

It’s not very often owning a classic Volkswagen saves you money, but last summer we managed to blag some free tickets to Carfest. In return we had to put Baloo on display in the Oktoberfest area, right next to the German beer lodge, well who am I to argue!

The weekend was awesome, I’ve wanted to go to Carfest for years, and it wasn’t a disappointment. I’ve always been quite fond of Chris Evans, after going to some of the Radio 1 Roadshows back in the day, and support the charities he champions. 

So we were finally able to take the kids to their first proper gig, with huge names like Paloma Faith, Texas, The Proclaimers, Jools Holland, Reef, Richard Ashcroft, James Bay, Clean Bandit, Sister Bliss and the legendary Status Quo. How’s that for a first gig! 

The weather, well it was changeable to say the least! We were very glad to have Graysie to sleep in, we were warm and cosy with her amazing factory heater. And Baloo made for the perfect base in the daytime, right in the heart of the festival. 

Our home for the weekend, Graysie was a welcome sight after getting soaked watching the bands. 

There were so many cool cars on display, we especially liked the Vintage area. 

The kids loved watching the cars race around the track, especially Ed China in his mobile bed!

My favourite picture from the weekend, a brand new T6 camper getting a jump start from an old bay window, priceless!
