Isle of Summer

Summer time is music festival time and the first one to take place in Munich is Isle of Summer, and EDM minifest. It took place on the Praterinsel for the last few years, but it's now gotten too large and is being held near Kultfabrik this year. It's also characterised by the fact that it's supposed to start at 11am and end at 8am the following day, but Susi, Nicki, Moni, Laura, Haucke, myself, and some others met up at the more reasonable time of 1pm. It was going to be interesting to see how we would do as Susi regaled the others with the story of how she watched me dance for 3 hours straight at Balaton, followed by being the only one to stay awake in the following epic taxi ride.  

I was a bit surprised as to our early start but it turns out we had to get there early because Klingande were playing at a ridiculously early time. 

Just in case you wanted to know what I was talking about

The outdoor part of the party continued on as the sun set. It got a bit cold, but as you can see, the crush of people kept us all toasty!

There's a noise curfew in Munich and this is the carnage at the main stage after everyone went to one of the indoor sections. 
After dancing for a few more hours, Susi and I were the last of our party crew, but we eventually had to give up 12 hours after we arrived - quite frankly, our legs were sore and wanted to catch the u-bahn before it stopped for the night. The next day, I could really tell that I had spent about 9 hours dancing the day before :D
