For the 23rd Vetschau City Festival on 2 August 2014, the palace grounds were to be aflame ("Schlosspark in Flammen"). Heavy thundershowers in the early evening hours couldn't scare away the Vetschau people, who had come from near and far in order to await an Irish-coined programme blazing in torchlight.

Clover Folk Rock Band from Berlin fiddled the rain clouds away with cheerful music and humorous wisecracks. They built a bridge to the audience that sat and hoped for musical instead of meteorological sprinkling.

For Erin Circle's first dance block a bright Irish mood had already replaced the Irish weather.

After another sweeping Clover interlude, Braxas A set the park literally on fire with a breathtaking fire show.

The party went on with Clover until after midnight. A bunch of choreomaniacs dared to enter the laid-out floor planks in order to indulge in Irish rhythms. In-between Erin Circle got a second opportunity to show their art of dancing on the big wooden stage.

A gig together with Clover had been on our Christmas list for ages. Thank you so much, folks, for your technical support and especially for such a relaxed and easy togetherness.
