It’s that time of the year again, for the big, chaotic walkabout gig that is known as the Fete De La Musique!
As always, I’m going, to catch some musical acts while bumping into people from the scene. (It’s not so much about the acts, really, because the Fete has always been chaotic, with timetables being shuffled around, performers coming to empty stages with no sound systems, etc.)
This year around, it’s not around Bintang Walk.
