Thanks to the complete and utter uselessness of some of the ‘essential’ gadgets I took away with me to Glastonbury this year, the blogging has fallen somewhat short!
I shall endeavour to catch up forthwith…
– Glastonbury, from the ground up –
In the meantime…
If gadgets are your thing – take a look at this post that I wrote for Mobile Industry Review last Wednesday, (in the car, en route to the festival to be precise), outlining just a few of the technological wonders that I was packing in my rucksack…
Morning all, it’s 930am down here in ‘sunny’ Glastonbury. I’m yet to venture outside the tent but I’m assured it’s actually ‘not that bad’… But hey! You can’t come to Glastonbury and moan about the weather! It’s all part of the fun ๐
So, here’s a quick rundown of what I’ve seen so far:
- Vampire Weekend
- The Tings Tings
- Lupe Fiasco
- Fun Lovin’ Criminals
- Xavier Rudd
- Kings of Leon
In that order..
Vampire weekend were fun. First dance of the day that was. The Ting Tings took AGES to setup and started half hour late so we only stayed a little while as we wanted to get back for Lupe Fiasco (political as hell but good with it). The Fun Lovin’ Criminals were damn cool, as expected and as for Xavier Rudd?
Well let’s just say I was pleasantly surprised…
And I WILL be buying his album when I get back.
Then, at long last, it was time for Kings of Leon…
They. Were. Amazing.
Similarly to Arcade Fire last year, these guys have completely made my festival..
Greetings from Glastonbury!
We’ve just been to see the awesome Vampire Weekend (although for some reason I refer to them as The Wombats in the second video below), and They were actually very good!
Then onto dancing at ‘Guilty Pleasures’ – 70s tunes – and later?
Fratellis, Editors and THE KINGS OF LEON!
Yay for Vampire Weekend!
We’re sat down. Beer in hand.
Arrived at 11pm. Found our friends at midnight. Tents up by quarter to one..
We can relax and start to take it in. Funnily enough though… Right now?
It’s bed time ๐
Night, night Glastonbury – see you in the morning ๐
We made it to the car park!
Only, we arrived on the EAST SIDE and we’re camping on the WEST SIDE.
According to my map, this is going to be a fair old trek…
