11 years of Pleinvrees with Worakls

In the week where we would actually celebrate our 2021 festival, we start our throwback series with one of our favourite guest and artist: monsieur Worakls!!

HOW DID YOU GET IN TOUCH WITH PLEINVREES FOR THE FIRST TIME?
I saw some videos on social médias and loved it from the first moment I saw it and really hoped to play there one day! The rest is history :) 


HOW OFTEN DID YOU ALREADY PLAY FOR PLEINVREES? CAN YOU REMEMBER THE EXACT NUMBER OF SHOWS?
Oh my god no haha... probably 20, 30 times ? I have absolutely no idea. But always enjoyed it. That’s the kind of gig that u already know will be good. 


WHAT WAS THE FIRST TIME AND HOW WAS IT? HOW DID IT FEEL TO BE PART OF THE PLEINVREES FAMILY?
I think the first time was a party in Amsterdam. I don’t think it was a huge festival formula but a very nice one anyways. I had a couple of gigs in the Netherlands before but not as big. I remember that I really enjoyed this night and gave everything to be as good as possible. I felt amazing over the years to come to play for such a nice team full of great people and talents. A pure pleasure every time! 


WHAT CHARACTERIZES PLEINVREES? WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT THE EVENTS?
Well yeah it feels that it’s a big family. You read that a lot about people speaking about themselves but you don’t get to feel it very often ! 


WHICH PLEINVREES SHOW IMMEDIATELY COMES TO MIND IF YOU THINK BACK? WHAT WAS YOUR ABSOLUTE PLEINVREES HIGHLIGHT?
I had so many nice memories but I remember once u ended up playing with an Indian headdress. The ambiance was crazy i loved it so much haha! 


DO YOU HAVE OTHER SPECIAL ANEKDOTES THAT POP UP WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT PLEINVREES?
You mean like kicking everyone’s ass at fifa in the backstages before going to play and using the help of one guy of the team to make the whole venue to sit down and jump? ;) Yeah we had so many cool moments, I long to live others !


WHAT DID YOU MISS MOST IN THESE BIZARRE CORONA TIMES?
I guess I miss playing... it’s weird because in the meantime I would hate to jeopardize anyone’s health so I wouldn’t like to play tomorrow without safety procedures... but still... I miss playing, feeling the crowd... 


WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO WHEN WE CAN DO EVERYTHING AGAIN AS WE'RE USED TO?
I look forward to jump in the crowd and dance with everybody! 


ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO SAY TO THE PLEINVREES TEAM, IN CELEBRATING THEIR 11 YEAR ANNIVERSARY?
Happy birthday guys I wish u the very best and 11 years more or happiness, love and success ! Look forward to see you soon ❤️
