Review for Playing For Change Foundation, Venice, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Cumbria UK Playing For Change event was by far the most enjoyable event of the social calendar this year. The secret and magical location, the flawless organisation of the dedicated team, the considerable creative thought that went into ensuring that all present had the time of their lives all in a good cause, is something this charity should be immensely proud of.
Everyone I spoke to said there was a feeling of homecoming about the event, like an enormous family gathering of like-minded people.
Fine artists, circus performers, bands, solo artists, DJ's, technicians and volunteers all offered their services for free to unite us all in a magical weekend of rhythm and dance. The feedback afterwards suggested that this was a life-changing event for some. To arrive at a place knowing no-one and being welcomed into a fold that only existed in your dreams, has altered the perception of those attendees who have grown accustomed to a daily diet of bad news and shown them that love really can exist without any ulterior motives. To leave the event exhausted but glowingly happy with the contact details of a host of wonderful people who are now friends for life is amazing. Thank you Playing For Change in all that you do.
