Epica is scheduled to play 3 festivals this summer before the DYU 10th Anniversary Tour next fall. The first festival took place this afternoon in Donington (United Kingdom), and Simone wore a new shiny dress. I think it looks a lot like this one, except with longer sleeves and v-neck ! I added a few pictures in the gallery, hopefully I’ll be able to add more later.
