Electric Picnic

As a virgin Electric Picnic-er, I was nervous that the hype around it would be anti-climactic. Maybe, just maybe, I wouldn’t like Electric Picnic? Maybe I would be someone who feels that when in comes to festivals, the smaller, the better. It’s certainly how I feel about gig venues, so what if it was the same for festivals? Surely nothing could top the amazing festivals I’d already been to in 2012?

I was wrong.

I completely understand why people fall in love with this festival, its vibe, its impressive sense of self, and its sense of style. I will not even attempt to capture the weekend in words. The pictures can do their thing. If they don’t, then maybe you just had to be there.

Django Django at Body and Soul

#15 The end of June brought another festival – number four for 2012 Body and Soul. And yet another washout! The festival itself was an eclectic mix of music and arts, which was marred by the muck that managed to get everywhere, leading to flooded carparks and a real mess of a campsite.

Don’t let this imply that I didn’t enjoy Body and Soul because I really did – the line-up had a few acts that I knew and a few more that I now know and love. The massive highlight for me was Django Django who I had missed at the Grand Social (I played ticket fairy and gave away my two tickets to some randomer on Facebook).
