The stadium was filled with more than 20 thousand people and as the Chasing Wonders team while enjoying the festival, we did not forget to take notes in case you missed it or just want to relive the day.

Beirut is in town!

Highly expected by indie-rock lovers, Beirut has given an outstanding performance last night and as one of their song said: had left a Sunday smile on our faces. The concert was accompanied with rain, but of course this didn’t stop Beirut fans. A happy crowd had already taken their places for this unforgettable performance. As the Chasing Wonders team, we were there too. While sniffing the air of the concert for you, we had the opportunity to see our very much loved band live. And, of course, we fed our souls with music. 🙂
