May 2013 in Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic
A fairy tale gothic castle, traffic free UNESCO Heritage town, Baroque firework display. But more than that, we all learned something new, just as we do at every Showlight event.

May 1985 in Hollywood, USA
Not much is remembered about this event – hijacked somewhat by our American friends, it seems to have enjoyed little success.
