I am writing this from the comfort of my bed, feeling a little bit ache-y and tired after spending three days in a tent, not sleeping much and getting just a teensy bit sunburnt. Despite all this, I'm still absolutely buzzing from the amazing time I had at the Isle of Wight Festival. A weekend of great music and copious amounts of dancing, boozing, camping and fun-having was just what the doctor ordered and I'm already planning which festival I want to hit up next.
Highlights included: James Bay (or should I say James Bae?), Paolo Nutini, Pharrell Williams and Ella Eyre. However, the most incredible experience was Sunday night, rocking out to an amazing set from Fleetwood Mac, standing just metres away from my ultimate style icon Stevie Nicks. They were even better than I could have ever imagined and the crowd went absolutely crazy for them. The atmosphere and experience was something I will never forget... but I bought a t-shirt just in case.
Aside from the music, the festival was jam-packed with loads of other good stuff. There were endless food stalls, all ranging from standard burgers and chips to the most delicious mac & cheese I've ever tasted, thai noodles, wood oven pizzas and even a hog roast. The choice of food was above and beyond my expectations and I had serious trouble deciding what to eat each day.
Overall, I had the best weekend! I can't thank TicketMaster enough for sending me as their official 'blogmaster'.
