Here’s my experience of Electric Picnic – a great weekend with even greater people. As usual, this was shot entirely on my iPhone.
As I said before in my Longitude post – I really like festivals. I was thrilled to have the last-minute opportunity to go to this years Picnic; not least because it featured some of my favourite music acts, but because it is one of the best ways I can think of to close out
Given the festival is camping over a long weekend, personal hygiene pretty much went out the window for everyone involved – I’m pretty confident I set the festival cleanliness record by having a total of two showers between Friday and Monday morning. No no, really.
None of that really matters in the grand scheme of the weekend though – everybody is in the same boat, and all anybody really cares about it is having a good time with their friends. No fucks given about anything else. Bliss.
Musical highlights of the weekend would have to be Chvrches, Sam Smith and (of course) Florence and the Machine – this was my fourth time seeing Florence in the last 6 years, and holy mother of god she has gotten so fucking weird. I love it.
I’m still finding it pretty difficult to adjust back to reality this week, as you can see on my Instagram. Have a good weekend – I know I’ll be taking it easy after the madness of the last one.
