This was by far one of the best festivals i have ever been to!
Rust, Beth, Jake and myself booked it last minute for Jakes 22nd Birthday thinking the weather was going to be terrible.. and we ended up sunburnt.. result haha!
It was a 2 1/2 hour drive down to Newquay where the festival was held, right on the beach front.
We set up our tents and decided to have a nap as we were up at stupid o’clock for the drive down. (OAPS) HA..
We arrive on the Thursday morning and the festival itself didn’t actually start until the Friday, so we headed down to the beach where they were holding Surfing Competitions. We sat on the beach having a few drinks then headed back up the hill to the festival and stopped in a bar where we had some more drinks..
That night they had a few rides going and the silent disco, we started by sitting around the tent playing card games and some more drinking..
Friday the music started and this carried on until sunday night with the last act, Bastille… which was INCREDIBLE.
We chose to leave Sunday night after Bastille so we would miss all the queuing in the morning to leave the festival. We got home about 3am Monday morning and me and Rusty spent the whole day sleeping and eating so much food haha.
2 really odd things happened to us whilst we were there.. On the Friday night we were waiting to watch Faithless and the boys went to get us some drinks whilst we saved our spot.. they got back and Beth needed to go to the loo so we left them there, as we were trying to get out of this massive crowd something really odd happened (laughing trying to type this).. It was like a human tsunami.. but not a normal one? if that makes sense haha… it wasn’t like anyone got pushed, just out of the blue everyone kind of fell over.. like a bomb had gone off.. it was HILLARIOUS, but it probably doesn’t sound as funny on here.. you had to be there ok. haha. We got back to the boys expecting our drinks.. yet they were covered in them instead.
On the Saturday we were watching Clean Bandit whilst waiting for Rudimental to start.. and this is really embarrassing on our behalf, there was this man stood a few feet in front of us wearing all denim.. including denim shoes and a hat.. we found it hilarious as we were drunk.. and decided to name him, denim on denim on denim. (yeah cringe) anyway.. we are watching Rudimental and all of a sudden… denim on denim on denim is on the stage singing.. he’s only part of Rudimental isn’t he. How awkward.
Some of the acts we saw included-
Waze and Odyssey
and many more.
WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND 🙂
