Assignment 3: write a paragraph about a cultural event

During the La merce festival, there is the BAM festival, it is a music festival with diferrent kinds of music for every taste. I think everybody knows this festival by now.
It begins on the 19th of october and ends at the 24th, at least last year.

Last year in the BAM festival there was a big dance event in the Estacio de Francia, it was on the last day of the La merce festival, on a wednesday. The Estacio de Francia is a trainstation and still in use. They transformed the whole station into a big dance event. There was place to dance outside too, on the sand and a big screen in front of you.

Actually, I found this place really impressive to see and to be there, so I even did ot mind which kind of music they played. I already was surprising the whole time about the trains stopping over there (yeah, the trains were in use on that evening).

Oke, there is a big hall, you can walk outside and there are a lot of people, we thought about some 60.000 and 70.000 people and a really good and famous DJ, called Dave Clark. So you can imaging how the atmosphere was, it was a really nice and big party/ music event. The train station makes it different from other dance event.

I really liked this music and the whole atmosphere. But there was one point I did not like and that was that everybody was using drugs. You saw the people asking for drugs the whole time. But I think it is very usual that people taking drugs on dance event, so you can do nothing about it. But it was a great night, with a lot of people dancing and having fun!
