VB2018 – Post Event Review, A Promoter's Tale

Usually by now, I am sharing a lengthy review of my experience of the Vocal Booth Weekender. Warts and all.
This year, I started to make notes about a month before the event began and documented all that took place in the run up to it. As I sat here over the last few days, I’ve just not been able to muster up the concentration to finish it. I think it’s because it’s so soon after finishing the VBW book and much of what I am writing seeming like unnecessary repetition. I will force myself to get it done at some point but I wanted to get words and emotions from those of you who enjoy sharing your own thoughts, not as a sales ploy but simply because it is a great way to document one of the biggest weeks of our year.
If you want to leave your own thoughts about VB2018 then please do so… who knows, they may make their way into a future revision of the VB story!
As most will have noticed, I didn’t give too many speeches this year but I wanted to give special thanks here to those that were instrumental in delivering another of ‘the best ones yet!’… Thanks to Gillman Audio, WowDeco, Robert Moldovan, The Taits, Adz McGowran, Sahara247 aka Ann Walker, Suella Campbell, José Maria, all the staff and management at Montepiedra and Palmera Hotels and Flamenca Holiday Rentals. Also instrumental behind the scenes were DJP and the Pressure Radio crew and our official photographer this year, Jansch Greatrix. Cannot forget the amazing staff and management of Shairo and Farandula and of course, last but not least, YOU!
