well i am here and i survived my first festival.
as many of you know this was to be me and my eldest sons first festival.
what better way to start than at a great scottish venue.
great music ,great food,and great weather?.
arrived a bit early,jamie wanted to be in before the main crowds,so was there at 10 am,,,,near front of gates.
after being,frisked(52 for god sake),headed straight to front of main stage.
jamie came across his mate inside(see pic of two teens in link),got in the front stage right under barriers..
stayed for the first band........cast........not to bad i have to say.
went for a wander round the arena,then back for a band called,,,,,,,,all time low..........again not a bad band,seemed a bit of punk rock there.even got a few girls to get there tops off lol.
then waited for,blondie,,,,,,,this time the crowd had grown,,blondie took to the stage,and the heavens opened............it was pissing down..saw a couple of songs,but by this time the rain was running down my back......
sod this,away to the loo to dry off.
back for the last 3 songs when i dried out a bit....
again she was on top form,still rocking for an oldie.
jamie buggered of to watch someone called ,you me at six,and brandon flowers ???
anyway another wander came and went to.king tuts wha wha tent...to see ...the hurts???
not to bad,so thought time to walk around again,at this point i thought,,where did all the people come from,,,,,answer,,,,it was pissing down again and they headed for the tent i was in...
stayed for the rest of the set lol.
jamie came back and we went to the main stage again to watch......my chemical romance.....very very good.....i liked them.
got the crowd rocking..
food time before the next band..(understand i never went to see the NME stage or the new acts stage),for god sake im an old man lol.
passed the NME stage and someone called...professor green. was playing......from 100 yards away my liver was pounding,and my hear was shaking lol lol.
there was thousands and thousands watching this guy.
guess what,its raining again......headed back to main stage....pulp ...now pulp are a take or leave band,,,,,,,but.
jarvis was on form,and jamie said they were not to bad....
at this point my waterproof boots were not waaterproof anymore lol lol lol.
jamie was ok he was in wellies,,people were mud diving and generally not giving a f..k....im wet and muddy and dont care anymore ...
right,main event.....the foos.........
exploded on stage in a mass of noise and,not so much lighting???(very poor light show).sound levels went up a few notchies as the band rocked ballado..
they went down a storm(no pun intended),and by this point the main arena was packed...all ages were there.....
foos were a great hit...........
highlights ,were......cast,romance,pulp,foos,,,,and the general athmospere,a good crowd considering the drink that was consumed...
lows were,,,,,,the bastard that pissed in a glass and threw it over a young kid in front of the crowd,the weather(2 downpours turned it into a bog),the price of a burger.4quid.
would i go again,would i put my boots through that mess again........ooooooooooooo yes.
