I was stressed and anxious for days running up to festival, probably with life in general but also hearing about festival disorganisation didnt help. 4th time (W2) and i loved it, saw everyone i really wanted to, timed taking it easy and going hard well. Saw people i knew , think only queued long once for a drink during Gorillaz. Drank the free bottles of water when I could and kept a couple of caps for emergency water in bag with emergency sneaked in tinnie... I'd no real desire to be close to main stages tbh so as long as I could hear i was happy enough to be further back, the side by side stages aided this in a way if you were the opposite side still had room to dance. Saw about 20 acts , a majority women I reckon.
Dua Lipa was fun if not a bit boring? But so many hits, had room to dance with friends so passed the time well.
Megan Thee Stallion came at the right time, unexpected great energy after catching end of Jessie Ware. Thought I was gonna go through the ground during 'body.' Nice set up for end of festival dancing at rayban after.
Yyys just great, welled up during Maps, came out of crowd a sweaty mess after Date with the night.
Tame Impala I finally actually watched after being in the vicinity eating when they're been on twice before lol. Wow, took some time by myself and just enjoyed that set in my own world
CMAT crowd showed up for the early trek to Tous. Goosebumps at 'I wanna Be a Cowboy baby' crowd singing video taken from the stage.
Lorde was fantastic, well paced set. Green light was something I'd wanted to see live since i spent a lot of lockdown watching concert footage so that was a real moment for me (as was what's your pleasure JW)
Amyl & the Sniffers surprised the crowd sang so much round me. However it was the first act I saw and I sweat buckets haha. Thought I was gonna be in trouble rest of weekend but adjusted!
Bits was a real trek but I really liked the area, had a different feel to it. Open the bridge at least 1 way and it'd be a winner .
Wore really supportive running shoes and delighted my back is fine. My thighs struggled with the final few steps up from Cupra though on the last day haha.
Enjoyed the first half of Strokes set, decided to eat and sit down at the back but head bopped to the nostalgic classics and adults are talking.
Mostly ended up preparing own food and with the heat didnt drink as much as i thought so have actually came home with money! Have booked a hotel for next year...
