“It’s the spirit of this festival that keeps us all coming back, the sense of celebration that in no way feels forced or phony, the prospect that you might bump into someone you know at any time, swapping stories and making plans to meet that may or may not come off. In so many ways, who you watch is beside the point.” Chimp Magazine
