Festival time approaches!

My Isle of Wight festival tickets have arrived. I don’t mean tickets – I mean bright pink wristbands – which magically turn a sort of brown colour after four days! Next week I head for the south coast and (sort of) go abroad…

The shower facilities at The Festival!

I can’t believe that it’s a year since I was last on The Isle of Wight – and this year will be my 8th consecutive year at the festival. As previously, the only way to do festivals is to go low tech – a tent. Showers are courtesy of Evian (out of a bottle) and toilets are best not talked about. They remain ‘interesting’. Jeremy, my good mate, and I are not the youngest there…

But the whole point is the music and this year, with luck, we’ll get to see….

Kings of Leon (I saw them on Monday this week at Coventry)
Pulp – common people!
Foo Fighters
Kaiser Chiefs
Big Country
Mike and The Mechanics
Beady Eye
Jeff Beck
The Script
Pixie Lott
Iggy Pop
Manic Street Preachers
Joan Jett
Andrea Corr
Tom Jones

On Thursday night we get to see Boy George and ABC!

I have started to realise that I have seen nearly all of the bands before. Is this a sign of getting old?

I need to get the tent out and sort out a febreze session!
