V Festival 2016

by - 17:30

So I went to  V Festival this weekend and it was something I was really looking forward to as well as being slightly nervous about it as I have never really gone to a big music event before but I really had no reason to be at all! I was very lucky to get a weekend ticket for my birthday, the same as my friends, so we were able to see loads of different bands and types of music which was so fun! I have so many videos on my phone and snap chat I realise that I didn't actually take very many photos! I don't think I have the whole taking pictures when out and about for my blog yet but I'll keep working on it! But I was going through all the videos the night after and it was so great as I got to remember what it was like and rewatch some of my favourites again.

As usual, the weather wasn't the best and was probably the most typically British weather (raining one minute, sunny the next and then so windy your hair is now in a completely different style!) but I think that kind of just added to the whole festival experience! I wore my wellies the first day and then my boots the second which was actually really good as they add a few inches to my height so I was able to see a bit more!

So on day 1, we decided that we would be mainly watching the acts on Virgin Media stage, which is the main stage, as it was going to be Jess Glynne, then Bastille, then Sia and then Justen Bieber ( a pretty goo line up I would say!). We were able to make our way closer and closer to the front of the stage with each act which meant we were really close! Jess Glynne was one of my favourites and Bastille were also really great! Sia was also amazing with the dancers she had but I felt hat it would have been much better at a sit-down concert as you couldn't really dance to a lot of her songs and by this point, we had been standing for about 4 hours and could really do with a distraction! Justin Bieber, I have to say though was very disappointing! First of all, he was the only act that I saw to mime half his show, he also used the backing track for his London show ( this is Chelmsford, Essex and V Festival, not London) and he admitted to being hungover as well... Overall not the best performance (sorry to those who love Justen Bieber).

On day 2, we had a much different experience and got more of a feel for the festival and how busy it was as we were doing a lot more walking around and going from different stages. The first person we saw was Fleur East who was really good and great to dance to. We had a bit of lunch then went to see Lukas Graham who was another of my favourites! They were really good and I would definitely go to see them perform again! We also saw Tom Odell, Jake Bugg and Rihanna which was a great way to finish off the day!

There were so many people as V, all having a fab time getting all glittered up and dancing to their favourite songs or songs they had never heard of. It was such a fab two days and I hope that I get the opportunity to go again!

Have you been to any festivals this year?
