Beacons Festival: Day 1

Day 1 of Beacons Festival has been and gone. It was a day of highs and lows and an interesting mix of chilled out festival vibes, and crazy dancing, drinking and getting squashed in the main tent.

The highs had to be exploring the street food – there’s everything for vegetarian stalls, through to meat feats and everything in between. We had a fried chicken burger each from Mother Cluckers – a chicken bar built into an old US Army style ambulance, with a counter higher than five-foot. It was delicious. We washed it down with beer. Lots of it.

Although Egyptian Hip Hop we’re disappointing, Lulu James, Vondelpark, Ghostpoet and Bonobo didn’t disappoint. The main stage was rocking, although with us not being big drinkers we were a bit too sober to deal with being smacked in the head whilst watching Bonobo in the crowds so we retreated to the back. It was chilled an amazing.

The lows? Well we moved our tent an hour ago. Last night we attempted to sleep with 10+ young ‘un (who are actually the same age as us but you wouldn’t think it) screaming their heads of. Managed 5 hours in the end, and made sure we were loud enough to wake them up this morning. Fun fun!

Day 2? We’ve chilled out in an incredible tea tent, I napped during a philosophy talk and now we’re sat in our tent watching the rain out for a bit! Sbtrkt, Stealing Sheep and Local Natives are on the main stage tonight.

I reckon it’s Gin O’clock now! So, until tomorrow!
