On the 2nd of August, Epica performed for the first time in Lebanon at the Byblos Festival.
We were all excited to finally arrive and enjoy our stay in Byblos. The traffic was so hectic that it took really long to get from the airport to the hotel. Some of us longed for a nice cold beer, I however needed a big meal! Luckily that wish came true. We were invited at the famous PePe restaurant and enjoyed delicious food. You could see the stage from the restaurant because it was very close.
After we were finished we took a picture with the owner. He was such a sweet heart! Time to sleep and dream about the show the next day.
We had time to do some sight seeing and hang out at the beach. We rented a boat and some of us swam in the sea. Such a perfect day!
The show was amazing. We had a two hour set and made a lot of people smile. The best was when our special chorus in 'The Phantom Agony' came by. The moment to go crazy disco metal!
Thanks for having us Byblos Festival! We had a great time! Our bellies too. ;)
Enjoy the pics!
