Reading Festival 2015

Monday, 31 August 2015


So I've had 4 hours sleep but I now have a severe case of post Reading blues. This was my third time going to Reading for the entire weekend and it was fucking amazing (sorry but the swear word was necessary). Even with the enormous amount of mud and the hell known as the toilets it was honestly a weekend I'll never forget. I just love seeing music live, it's a feeling you just can't beat. I don't know whether anyone is interested but here are the bands and acts I managed to catch:

Mariachi and the Bronx, Hunter & the Bear, Panic at the Disco, Don Broco, All Time Low, Bastille, Limp Bizkit, Mumford & Sons

Nothing But Thieves, Marmozets, Modestep, As It Is, And So I Watch You From Afar, Royal Blood, Everything Everything, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Twin Atlantic, Metallica

Black Foxxes, Fort Hope, Ghostpoet, Mooseblood, Mini Mansions, Jack Garrat, Coasts, We Are the Ocean, Manchester Orchestra, Kendrick Lemar, Little Comets, Frank Turner, Refused

So quite a mixture of bands seen and that's what makes Reading so amazing. You can go from seeing a heavy metal band in one tent to a dance act in the next it's celebrates such an eclectic mix which I fully appreciate. Highlights for me, by far Royal Blood were the best act, what an incredible atmosphere. I really didn't want their set to end. Also probably a little bias as they are one of my favourite bands but Twin Atlantic were on point!! Frank Turner was also incredible to see especially acoustic. I'm also chuffed I can finally say I've seen Refused and Limp Bizkit. Discovering new bands is always the best part, Mooseblood I really enjoyed seeing.
In terms of headliners both acts I saw were incredible. Mumford and Sons are my best friend Charlotte's favourite band so it made me think of her. Listening to them just made me so happy. Downloading some songs now. And Metallica well they're Metallica enough said. The set seemed to last an eternity though my feet were giving up half way through and I didn't catch all of them. I didn't see the Libertines as I'm not really bothered about their music but I've heard they were amazing too.

A weekend of music, mud, cider, dancing, singing, glitter and floral crowns galore, what a treat. I now can't wait for the next time I go even though I felt extremely old there and I'm only 21!!

Discovering somewhere new

Friday, 21 August 2015


There's something I find so rewarding when I venture to a new place. One thing I hate about myself is that I don't explore enough. I stick to the same areas and never broaden to where I can go. Watford's great and all but I would quite like to go somewhere new ya know. I guess being limited with hardly any funds and not coming from a family that go on holidays very often I haven't had the chance to see a lot. On the odd occasion, my parents and I go on a day out somewhere usually on the coast so we get to be by the sea. We decided to visit Portsmouth and Southsea as we'd never been there. It was just nice to get away from home really even if it was for a day. It consisted of walking by the sea, checking out the shops in Portsmouth (there was a designer outlet in which I bought nothing aha) and my Dad talking to everyone like he always does. I think it has firmly established that I need a holiday of some kind. I need to get away more and have some time to myself. I tried to look like a 70's boho girl with my outfit for this day, don't think I got that right.
So I know I haven't blogged in weeks and I apologise. Life is a little well difficult at the moment. Maybe I'll write about it. But I have missed writing posts and hopefully it'll be regular again soon :)
