We want to give a big warm thanks to everyone who attended the Liberstad Summerfest 2018! We had visitors from Brazil, Italy, USA, Belgium, Sweden, Finland and Norway.
We also want to give a big thanks to Fierce Justice, the rock band that played at Saturday evening at our newly constructed event hall.
There was a lot of work to do and complete before the party, and we did not get to finish everything that was planned. Still we had a great time, and we are looking forward to the next summerfest, which will be Saturday June 1st 2019!
All weekend we had fantastic weather, and the weather in the area have been very sunny and hot all of May. In these photos you can see the drive from Hægeland, towards Bjelland, and the exit to Tjelland. The weather on Saturday was around 29-30 degrees celcius.
We had the first people arriving on Thursday, and most people arrived on Friday throughout the day. We had beds available for rent, and we had 5-6 RVs on the site, and we had two tents that people stayed in.
After a breakfast, John took everyone on a guided tour of the property. We think everyone enjoyed the trip, being able to have a look at the areas that are planned for property plots.
After the tour into the forest, John and Sondre did a presentation on the progress thus far on the Liberstad-project, and gave an overview of some future plans. Sondre had made an 12-minute "One year in review" video of drone footage, from the beginning in June 2017, until the final preparations for the Summerfest in May 2018. After the presentation and Q&A, it was time for social gathering in preparation for the live concert in the evening.
Later in the evening, Fierce Justice performed an excellent concert on our new event stage. They did a great show and later in the evening, Espen grabbed a guitar and performed some late night tunes.
Since the weather was amazing during the whole weekend, people enjoyed themselves by taking baths, hikes and swimming on the various spots available in Liberstad. Here are photos from 3 different spots to cool down on a hot summer day.
Thanks to everyone who attended our Summerfest, and we hope even more can join us next year! We do continue to receive visitors to Liberstad all year around, from every spot on the planet. Please feel free to visit us at any time in the future.
