Early 1985. U2 is announced as the headliner for Torhout/Werchter later that year. I was 15 at the time and asked my mum if I could go. A defenite NO was the answer.
What to do..... At that time I had a penpall who lived about 100 km away from me and her parents were very open-minded. She asked her mom and she got the ok. So we made a little plan. I would say to my mum I was going to stay at my friends place for a week and then we would secretly go to Werchter. In the event my mother would call; my friends mum would say that we were out to the beach or something like that.
So off we went!!!
