Against Land Mines – Supported by Ferd
In our attempt of being true adventureres we believe that we cannot rest for too long, so after having spent the night with Nasser the Shepheard and his family we hit the road again.
We have now reached the magestic Qadisha valley, that carves its way through the mountains in the North of Lebanon. We passed popular attractions, such as the Cedars, Ehden and the village of Bcharre. But we had to keep our minds clear and not let ourselves being taken away by this beauty, as we were reaching soil infested with land mines.
There are more than 300.000 land mines left in the lebanese soil since the civil war. In addition to this, Israel dropped more than four million cluster bombs of “leftover” ammunition over Lebanon in 2006, leaving up to 49 percent bombs unexploded for children and farmers to discover in the future.
Norwegian Peoples Aid is one of many organizations that works to prevent this from happening by clearing the land from mines and bombs. This episode of Walk of Causes is dedicated to the work they do, and is supported by Ferd.

– BONUS VIDEO! Crowd Cam from Example’s performance at Hove!!!
Today marks the UK release of Live Life Living, the fifth album of Brit musician Example. Sure we had never heard of him before despite his whopping 2 million followers on Twitter and 25 million listens on Spotify, but Example already knows that.

– Catch the show tonight so he doesn’t have to
“We’ll be stage diving and shit, so hopefully I won’t break my knee or neck, I don’t want to die. Ok, If I could choose to die I’d rather die on stage then somewhere else…” Rapper Arif told 2famous.TV, as we discussed being a local superstar, what festivals like HOVE mean to Norwegian artists and what we should expect from his show tonight.
– The kids went mental!
Some of the artists at the Hove festival OWNED the audience, and Bastille was definitely one of the highlights. With complete crowd control they moved thousands of Norwegian teenagers to synchronized madness. It was one of those experiences that will live for ever on hundreds of Instagram accounts. (Most of the kids here says that they don’t remember the festival from day to day). [more]
HOVE goes hardcore when L.A. rapper hits the stage
Earl Sweatshirt, who hails from my hometown adjacent city of Los Angeles (well, as you’ll see in the video, even if L.A. is the easiest point of reference on the international scene, if you grew up in the ‘burbs, never tell people who are actually from L.A. that you’re from there, because they will call your Orange County ass out so fast), shook the AMFI stage with some hard-...
